Packaging Approval Senior Technologist


Hemel Hempstead


We are looking for someone to work within our packaging team.


This person will look to protect and enhance corporate Brand integrity in GB & Ireland (and any other territory) through implementing and maintaining processes that assure the food safety, quality and fitness for purpose of all packaging materials or Britvic Soft Drinks finished goods from supply source through to consumer, which supports business objectives of supply continuity, customer service, and cost optimisation.


As a we a large FMCG business we use a lot of packaging for all the soft drinks which we produce, predominantly plastic, glass and aluminium.  To ensure that our consumers enjoy their drink of choice we need to ensure that we have a high degree of compliance so that the materials we use are fit for purpose and don’t affect the flavours of our drinks.  You will be using a due diligence process to test the robustness of the materials.  We have certain procedures that you’d need to follow to ensure the materials are safe and compliant to use for example managing the specification of materials and Product Vision.


In this role you will also have to use analytical skills and be capable in speaking to various stakeholders internally.


Food or drinks packaging experience (FMCG) is desirable as is HACCP although working with food technology or nutrition could be suitable as there are elements that follow a similar process when it comes to testing.  Also, PET awareness, bottle blowing, or glass appreciation could be useful experience for this role.


If this sounds like you, then we’d love to hear from you. This exciting role could give you the opportunity to play an integral part in the future growth of one of the biggest soft drink suppliers in the UK.  Britvic is a very exciting and supportive place to be, has a clear vision for growth, a focus on personal development and an open and honest culture.  It is the name behind iconic and market-leading brands such as Robinsons, Pepsi, Fruit Shoot, Tango, Squash’d, J2O, R. Whites, Gatorade, 7UP and Lipton.





We’re committed to providing equal opportunities to all applicants and employees – in fact this is at the heart of our company culture and values, and we welcome applications from candidates with diverse backgrounds.
