This role has been created to lead the design and strategy of the clients’ packaging for its global private labels in General Merchandising. As part of a new strategic direction you will be building brands that will be wanted and needed around the world in categories ranging from technology and electrical to toys, kitchen and home-wares.
As well as working in a great team, there are fantastic career opportunities with this client and the possibility of being able to travel if you want to. There is also a fantastic benefit package.

What you will be doing:
- Deliver against creative briefs by directing world-class packaging design treatments.
- Shape and influence briefs with categories and brand teams.
- Recruit and manage a roster of design agencies, both creatively and financially.
- Ensure design treatments can be used across markets or adapted as appropriate.
- Work closely with brand managers to ensure output is commercial, applicable and practical.

- Highly organised, down to earth and calm under pressure.

This is a hugely exciting time for this company and they are really looking for a candidate who can make this role their own. This is not a hands-on role, it is more of a Design Manager position where you will be overseeing everything from concept through to artwork and completion. Ideally you will have come from a packaging design background and then into an account manager/client services role having worked on global accounts.

If you are interested in this position please send through your CV and samples.
