Job Details

Creating sustainable food packaging for the supermarket shelves. An opportunity to use your packaging expertise to make a real impact…

Here you'll be the lead on all things Packaging related, covering a wide range of products across multiple manufacturing sites. It's a fast-paced and varied role, with lots of autonomy and never a dull day.

You'll be developing innovative packaging solutions for the supermarket shelves. Creating sustainable and cost-effective packaging for leading household-name brands and retailer own label ranges. You own the whole process from the design stage through to manufacturing.

You'll have support from a Packaging Administrator and work closely with the Packaging Procurement Manager, building strong relationships with the supply base. This will include identifying new materials and suppliers that give the business the competitive edge. You'll be responsible for briefing Packaging suppliers, reviewing product quality and supplier performance, along with the maintenance of the packaging specification system.

The role involves being hands-on in the factories, supporting the Operations teams with any quality issues, and supporting NPD on production trials.

You'll be responsible for maintaining knowledge of current and future packaging regulations and ensuring the business is identifying packaging solutions for future business needs.
Ideally, you'll have worked in a Packaging Technologist role in the food industry and have a breadth of experience across different formats. Experience in wider FMCG is also welcome, as long as you enjoy working in a fast-paced and dynamic environment.

The role involves some travel, so a driving licence and own transport is needed. It's mainly site-based although the business is flexible for some homeworking around the needs of the role.
