Packaging Innovation Manager
Packaging Innovation Manager, FMCG, South East
Rare opportunity to shape a newly created Packaging Innovation role within a successfully expanding FMCG business...
As Packaging Innovation Manager, you will overhaul all existing packaging and develop industry leading packaging formats that address environmental, convenience and cost challenges.
We are looking for someone who will challenge the norms, thinking creatively to find innovative solutions that give this business the competitive edge.
You will have your finger on the pulse of the latest global packaging trends, particularly relating to new technologies and sustainability. Through close working with Operations teams you will challenge established working processes and assess feasibility of new packaging projects. You will also work closely with your Purchasing colleagues to identify key suppliers, develop strong working supplier relationships to leverage expertise that supports the innovation pipeline.
In essence this role is about being the go-to Packaging Innovation expert within the business. You will be a key part of the NPD function, helping to deliver first to market new concepts that consumers love. The business is well-established with a number of key long-standing customer relationships. More recently it has successfully grown into new product areas and is consistently winning new work across a wider customer base. It operates in fast-paced product areas, supplying to customers with high quality standards. This is no doubt a really high-profile role, one that could be career-defining for you. It's not often you get to shape a new position like this, or to have the support to develop and lead an industry leading packaging strategy.
If you think you can rise to this challenge and have the demonstrable experience in packaging development to succeed, I would love to talk with you.
