Job Description

Senior Packaging Engineer Seasonal


Do you have a track record of successful complex packaging project deliveries? Can you easily manage multiple packaging teams? Help bring chocolate innovation concepts to life.

We’ll challenge you every step of the way: the job

As a Sr. Packaging Engineer, you’ll be responsible for our market share and presentation over Easter and Christmas, and our global Travel Retail channel. We challenge you to build a bridge between the global and European packaging team by translating global packaging innovations into feasible and viable outcomes. To achieve this, you will initiate and manage major regional innovation packaging projects.

Your focus will be on discovering and translating global seasonal chocolate growth activities, and implementing new packaging innovations in our business.

How you will be impacting the world of our customers? By:

  • identifying and leveraging internal and external supply network opportunities with external manufacturers and co-packers;
  • engaging with different high-level stakeholders to deal with multiple complex projects at the same time;
  • working closely with our Global Category Business Units on the technical feasibility of packaging concepts at an early stage of the design process;
  • taking the lead as a business packaging owner by collaborating with the Marketing and Procurement departments;
  • sharing your technical packaging expertise in flexibles, carton and corrugated and rigid plastics.

Are you eager to share your winning packaging experience with us?

Our employees are more than just employees. That’s why we’d like you to be creative, customer-focused and action-oriented. You know how to manage different relationships in project teams and with external partners, and always look for creative solutions during problematic situations. Standing alone doesn’t make you nervous; it ensures you always aim to learn more and to grow within your division. In addition, you can positively influence others and direct them effectively.

The experienced engineer we are looking for:

  • holds a HBO, bachelor’s or master’s degree in (food) packaging, industrial design engineering or another discipline related to technical packaging;
  • has a minimum of 5 years’ experience in packaging innovation in FMCG or the packaging industry;
