Innocent started with a simple mission: to make drinks that make it easy to do yourself some good. In 1999 we concocted a few smoothies in our kitchen and tested them on people at a music festival; today we’re blending every type of fruit & veg under the sun and selling drinks right across Europe. We have great ambitions: to show the world that you can build a successful business that cares about more than just profit, and to leave things better than we find them. We’re proud to call ourselves Europe’s favourite little healthy drinks company, but we’re still growing. And that means we need more brilliant people who share our ambition, to join in with the next, most exciting, part of our story.

What you'll be doing:

Here at innocent, we’re going through an exciting period of growth, getting our drinks into the hands of more drinkers in the UK and beyond. 

This means we are growing our creative team too, so we’ve created a shiny new role for a packaging account manager to come and join our creative hub (that’s the name we give our creative team, they’re like an internal creative agency just for us.).

As our first packaging account manager you’ll get to work on loads of exciting projects, including our current packaging (including labels, bottles, tetras and multi-packs), any new product development and also be involved with strategic packaging projects as they come up.

This is a key role in our creative packaging team. You’ll be managing budgets, logistics and different stakeholders. There’s lots to juggle in the way of feedback and timelines and we’ll be counting on you to keep it all moving. We’re happy for you to bring your own ideas and help shape our account managing process.

You’ll get to work with a great bunch of people. This role will work closely with our lovely marketing team, the folks over in our supply chain team. There will also be some external contacts too – like our external creative agencies, our trusted production agency, and our printers. And of course, you’ll work with all our creative minds, as well as freelance packaging designers and photographers.

You'll have:

  • Lots of experience (agency experience is great, in-house is a plus too) in consumer-focused branding and packaging design.
  • Some great examples of planning packaging projects from brief to print.
  • The ability to re-prioritise and escalate briefs while protecting our processes to help support strong creative outputs that are on time and on budget (we like to keep the main thing, the main thing).
  • Extremely good organisational skills and be a great problem solver (especially when dealing with unreasonable requests…we can be a demanding bunch).
  • Exceptional communication- verbally and via email/teams.
  • An interest in learning about the operations process of packaging and print (there will be a little bit of that to do as well).

You'll get:

  • To work with a very passionate team who love fruit drinks, people and the planet.
  • To grow and develop in an exciting, fast-paced environment.
  • To help shape this role and really make it your own.

As well as the standard stuff you get for turning up for work, we have some great clubs, a free breakfast and as many smoothies as you can shake a stick at.

If you think you have everything we're looking for and more, then we'd love to hear from you. You'll need to get your skates on though, as applications close soon.

Dolly Parton may have worked Nine to Five but you don't have to. We're open to a chat about flexible working. No promises, but we reckon that if it's good for you, then it's good for us.

We're all about building a workplace for the future here at innocent, we believe in equal opportunities and we celebrate diversity. We’re an inclusive workplace, where everyone is welcome, everyone can be natural, and be the best versions of themselves.

You’ll help us to keep doing business the right way – keeping innocent an inclusive and inspiring place to work, using our B Corp status to inspire wider change, and reinforcing our culture of staying little as we grow big.

No agencies please.
