Job description

The Packaging Analyst will support Plant Nitra with the identification of improvement opportunities around packaging (both financial, safety and quality improvements), and then work with suppliers to trial and the potentially implement those improvements – both physically and on the production systems. This role will be a mix of identifying opportunities through your own initiative, and reacting to issues found in production – you will then work with teams across the supply chain on issue resolution and implementation.

With responsibility for analysing supply chain data, developing process improvements and supporting the implementation of changes, the successful candidate will play a vital role in helping the Container/Packaging Team achieve budget and operational objectives to support JLR’s production plans.

You will need the confidence to go and engage new teams and understand their challenges/requirements, a hands on approach to ‘go-look-see’ when an issue is found to understand the problem, and the ability to communicate new ideas and encourage others to move away from some of their traditional methods. You will need the experience of working in Production/Logistics to understand the supply chain process from Supplier to Production delivery and the challenges that can be faced at each step, and the confidence to contact suppliers and build new relationships.

You will need the ability to organise yourself and manage multiple projects at once, to prioritise your workload which will be inconsistent and reactive to new issues, and then communicate your timing plans to stakeholders as it develops/changes.
