Packaging Development Manager 

Part of a successful and significant international Group, this profitable and highly ambitious company manufactures a range of fast-moving consumer goods products on behalf of the major supermarkets and broader retail sector.  The business, which is a leader across its core markets in the UK and Europe, has achieved impressive, sustained growth over an extended period based on a reputation for innovation, technical expertise and the highest levels of customer service.     

Operating across two of the company’s key UK manufacturing operations in the North West and South, this role will have responsibility for fulfilling a wide range of packaging requirements, working with customers along with a range of internal functions to develop solutions in line with market needs.  The appointed candidate will also collaborate with colleagues across Europe to create the next generation of packaging solutions, introducing new alternatives to traditional plastic solutions, and will lead innovation and value engineering activities to improve overall packaging performance.   

Candidates, ideally qualified in a packaging-related discipline, will have proven relevant packaging development experience, preferably gained in a food/FMGC manufacturing environment.  Evidence of adopting packaging innovation is highly desirable and ideal candidates will possess a strong interest in the introduction of new, high-performing, environmentally-friendly packaging technologies.  Candidates will be excited by the prospect of collaborating with packaging development colleagues in Europe and will be happy travelling regularly within the UK.
