Full Time

This newly created position will be the face of packaging in one of the most innovative opportunities available in the job market at the moment.

This is one of the best packaging opportunities we have been briefed on in some time. This Packaging Innovation Manager role will allow an innovative and creative individual to come into a business that is crying out for packaging expertise and really drive the whole packaging agenda and strategy.

A new central team has been created to partner with a major customer to capitalise on new packaging formats and leverage their competitive edge in this area. As this is a newly created position, you will be in the driving seat for how packaging will impact the company and you will be responsible for setting the agenda. Our client is looking for someone to advise on current and future packaging trends and ultimately answer the question of "how are we going to wow the customer?". You will also need the technical expertise to understand how packaging will work in on an industrial manufacturing scale as this role will be responsible from a packaging perspective for a number of manufacturing sites.

The company in question is market leader in 75% of its categories so you will be joining a business that is in a position of strength and so you will be able to perform your role with any necessary support and expertise required. Due to its scale of operations, there are a number of potential development opportunities ongoing as well.

While experience in packaging in FMCG food/drink is required, the business is really open-minded about what the exact products are. What is important are these three things: 1) An innovative and creative mind-set to give a competitive advantage over the market place. 2) A strong technical understanding (e.g. "what will happen when this packaging is put in an oven?"). 3) A proactive individual that is comfortable working across multiple sites.
