Job Details


This global business are on an innovation journey that most companies can only dream about.  With significant investment and a whole new approach to R&D and Innovation, we are working with them to recruit a team that can deliver new strategic innovation in a collaborative and agile way.

The Role

In this high profile role you will be working with the central R&D team, regional teams and senior stakeholders to help deliver innovative solutions within the packaging arena.

This position will have a lot of autonomy and take responsibility for scaling and commercialising product innovation.   The products will be new to market so you will need to use your expertise to understand the technical and operational variables that could impact the commercial success of products at scale.

You will work in partnership with site and functional teams to ensure planning and quality execution are flawless.  This will include building technical and business plans to achieve commercial success when products are scaled to production, incorporating capital expenditure as well as supply chain readiness.

Validation of product introductions, process development, operational control process, setting quality parameters and product sign-off are key aspects of the role. As this is a new position, you will be designing and implementing the commercialisation process so that it can be replicated at other sites and for the next product in the innovation pipeline.

The Person

We’re looking for a confident leader with the technical and commercial expertise to carve out success in this new role.  You’ll have worked in a manufacturing environment and although the packaging sector would be great it is not essential as experience within FMCG categories such as food / drink/ household/ pharma/ health & beauty/ pet food etc would be just as valued.

You will understand how to work in agile cross-functional environments and can demonstrate your success when it comes to launching new products in an organised, methodical and collaborative way whilst achieving the company’s commercial ambition. 

You must have the ability to manage multiple priorities and respond resourcefully to new demands and challenges within a rapidly changing business landscape.  You will be a high level communicator and can inform, influence, engage and inspire a range of audiences across all functions.  You will also need to have strong proactive risk identification, problem solving and analytical skills.

The role can be based UK with travel to European sites or be based in southern Europe.

If you feel you have the breadth, capability and tenacity to really make your mark in this new role then please apply or call Dhrutee for a confidential chat.
