The opportunity exists to do good in the world by leading the sales of COLOURFORM™ products that are already on the frontline in the drive to replace plastic packaging. These bespoke designed and crafted paper based solutions can be applied across many sectors: from beauty and cosmetics to luxury drinks and even electronics and industrial applications.
The role will be based in the English Lake District – which is designated as a world Heritage site. There will be a need to travel – once we can – to wherever we need to grow the business!
Who are we?
We are James Cropper Colourform and we create moulded pulp packaging! Our business is only 3 years old despite being part of the James Cropper group with all its history and heritage. We are already achieving double digit growth annually, with massive future potential. We create bespoke design-engineered plastic free packaging with world class surface finish, colour, shape and functionality. We only use renewable natural fibres from well managed forests and high quality recycled fibres from our own world-class reclaimed fibre plant, including used coffee cups. The best bit? Our packaging is renewable, recyclable and won’t float around in the sea forever.
Why are we looking for you?
We know that bringing business through the door is key to growing this budding business, and we already have some amazing customers that need the right level of care and attention.
We are looking for someone who has the ability to play a major part in building our business both domestically and around the world, not just in today’s markets, but recognising the full scope of Colourform’s potential.
Who are we looking for…?
You will be working with a talented team to lead sales into markets that know they need to replace plastic packaging, but don’t yet know how. This role needs someone who is ready to push the business forward in ways we didn’t think were possible. We like working with people that fit in well with the team, and are self-motivated, trustworthy, and results driven. As such, you should enjoy the challenge of driving engagement and implementing skills, knowledge and the right behaviours in order to deliver.
What skills and experience do you need to bring with you?
This is about selling solutions not widgets! Creativity, energy and focus are key. You will need to be able to work with the customers and our team to create something that really works. Experience of the packaging industry would be a distinct advantage, as would experience of working with cellulose fibre. You may well have some design experience too, but above all we are looking for somebody who really cares and can see how this business can help make a better future.
