Greenfield Senior Packaging Procurement Manager - Leading Global FMCG - London - £70,000 - £75,000 + Car Allowance + Bonus

One of the largest and most innovative FMCG companies in the world is looking to strengthen their rapidly growing procurement team by adding a Senior Packaging Procurement Manager to their ranks!

The organization specializes in the Consumer Healthcare space and so are looking for packaging procurement specialists either with experience in this space or with a passion for pharmaceuticals. They have had a remarkably strong couple of years as a business and due to this are about to launch a number of confidential new products that will require a broad range of packaging across Plastics, Corrugates and Cardboard to name a few.

The procurement function has transitioned from tactical to strategic over the last few years so despite the current strength of the function, there is a still a large Greenfield element to the role! This means that you will be designing and implementing brand new category strategy across Packaging Procurement and truly have the opportunity to put your stamp on the organization, whilst focusing not only on cost reduction, but also on Sustainability and Ethical Sourcing!

The organization have an excellent reputation for employee wellbeing and satisfaction, mainly down to the excellent healthcare provision, the flexible hours and their excellent track record for progression. Typically, an individual can expect to be promoted either vertically or diagonally within a year and a half, with the company preferring to promote internally than recruit at senior levels.

Greenfield Packaging Procurement Manager, Required Background: -

  • Strong end to end experience managing packaging procurement, ideally having looked after a number of subcategories in this space including plastics, corrugates and cardboard
  • Understanding of the recent changes to packaging regulations in the UK
  • Team management experience is a bonus as this role will have one direct line report
  • Ability to work at a fast-pace and manage senior stakeholders
  • Exposure to an FMCG / Pharmaceuticals environment is beneficial but not essential
  • Degree + CIPS (beneficial but not essential)

If you are a packaging procurement specialist looking for a step up or an opportunity to join one of the most influential organisations within its industry, then this could be the perfect role for you!
