Packaging is critical. Most people think it’s just the boring part of the product that you discard, the protective covering, but you know better. It’s only because you’ve got it right that the rest of us take it for granted. Without packing technologists, our products would never leave the factory, and that’s where you come in.
Whitworths are hiring a Packaging Technologist to lead packaging specification design and development across our brand and own label range, driving innovation and continuous improvement, owning specification, artwork approval and conformity. You’ll work cross functionally across the business to get your designs from conception to factory and into store helping deliver great impact at shelf.
We’re looking for someone who understands the shopper and consumer and gets excited about seeing their packaging on a shelf, and as we’re currently on a journey to expand our healthy snacking portfolio to the nation, you’ll be seeing your work more and more often! All we ask is that you have experience working with packaging in food or pharma, and you have a strong understanding of the development, manufacturing and printing process.
Whitworths are the UK’s leader in dried fruits, nuts and seeds and growing fast. We’re proud to be widely recognised and trusted by our working partners, international suppliers and, most importantly, by millions of consumers.
We’ve been bringing you healthy, delicious products for over 13 decades, but whilst we’re steeped in history, we’re not set in our ways! Over the years, we’ve been the first to give you the best solutions in the category and access to a wide range of new, and exotic tastes from all over the world. Today, we’re using that expertise to provide innovative, tasty, healthy products – and we want you to join us!
