We're looking for a Senior Packaging Technologist who can join our site in Hull and define, develop and implement innovative packaging solutions in accordance with Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR) guidelines and the specific requirements of our customers and the business.

Main responsibilities

 

This is an exciting role for the right person to come and deliver first to market packaging concepts to ensure we are ahead of our competitors.  Working with customer development teams and internal stakeholders to build relationships, which will in turn maximise competitor advantage.

 

We need a Senior Packaging Technologist who can manage the critical path for packaging and develop innovative solutions in line with CSR objectives.  In addition to monitoring quality issues and providing troubleshooting and problem solving resolutions for any identified problems.

In addition, you will need to be able to evaluate and recommend enhancements to current portfolios which will support the customer experience, manufacturing efficiency and cost of goods.

 

Ideal candidate

 

The ideal candidate will need to have excellent communication skills, with the ability to create and maintain good relationships with internal and external customers.  

 

We need someone who is innovative, forward thinking, dynamic and full of new ideas.

Managing multiple projects is a large part of the role, so the successful candidate will have managed projects in a current or past role, hopefully with an understanding of Corporate Social Responsibility.  In addition, there is line management responsibility in this role, so if you have previous experience of managing a small team, that would be advantageous.

Not only will you be working for one of the country's leading food manufacturers, you'll also get to work for a company that really does put people at the core.
