  • Overview

    We’re Kingfisher. You might know us as B&Q, Screwfix, Castorama, Brico Depot or Koçtaş. We’re made up of 79,000 passionate people, call 1,302 stores home and operate in 10 countries. That’s right, we’re big, but we have ambitions to become even bigger and even better. We want to become the leading home improvement company and grow the largest community of home improvers in the world. And that’s where you come in.

     

    At Kingfisher, we’re revolutionising the way our renowned brands – B&Q, Screwfix, Castorama, Brico Depot and Koçtaş – operate. Offer and Supply is working globally across all our brands so that our 6 million customers recognise the same unified product ranges at the same prices, wherever they are in the world. Here, collaborating with colleagues is essential – whether you’re creating and deciding what we’ll sell globally or delivering new and exciting products to our customers, you’ll push boundaries and make your mark. There’s no doubt that this new way of working is challenging, but it’s also very rewarding – and with that comes opportunity. Opportunity that’s yours for the taking.

Your role will be responsible for writing retail and transit packaging specification for our own brand ranges of products.

You will have an understanding of packaging qualification practices and standards and previous experience and understanding of software and tools used for packaging development.
