If so, this is an exciting new role in a global team, offering the opportunity to travel across Europe and work in close conjunction with some of the biggest businesses on the globe.
Joining a FTSE 100 manufacturing organisation with significant market share, they saw continued growth throughout the pandemic.
With a highly experienced Senior Leadership Team and a dedicated Supply Chain Customer Excellence Team, you will be the key conduit between internal manufacturing, sales, and end clients. You will support the introduction and assessment of new products, manage customer complaints, and ensure the highest levels of customer satisfaction through proactively working with internal stakeholders.
This role is posed well to pave the way for further opportunities across the organisation, with a department leader who actively promotes and develops from within.
- You will be responsible for a large portfolio of strategic customer relationships, predominantly distributed across France. You will have complete ownership of the customer excellence journey, working proactively with internal stakeholders to develop and launch new products that meet their needs. These products include a wide variety of paper, corrugated board, and packaging solutions across multiple industries.

- You will demonstrate a wealth of expertise within the paper and corrugated board industry, with the knowledge to confidently discuss product issues, amendments and technical aspects with suppliers and internal stakeholders.

- Strong French and English language skills are critical.
