Make an impact on the world of consumers and travelers by your creative packaging for Mars chocolate products that comply with tax free rules and legislation. That is your challenge! Will you make our chocolate stand out in holiday seasons like Easter and Christmas? Help bring chocolate innovation concepts to life!

We’ll challenge you every step of the way: the job
Easter and Christmas are exciting times for chocolate products and working on products which are being sold in a tax free environment is going to be your challenge. To make our products stand out by your creativity and also have the packaging comply with the special rules and legislation of a tax free environment.

Your creativity will not be limited by rules and legislations and we challenge you to build a bridge between the global and European packaging team by translating global packaging innovations into feasible and viable outcomes!

How will you do this? By being responsible for our market share and presentation over Easter and Christmas, and our global Travel Retail channel. How to achieve this? By initiating and managing major regional innovation packaging projects.

Your focus will be on discovering and translating global seasonal chocolate growth activities, and implementing new packaging innovations in our business.

How you will be impacting the world of our customers? By:

  • identifying and leveraging internal and external supply network opportunities with external manufacturers and co-packers
  • engaging with different high-level stakeholders to deal with multiple complex projects at the same time
  • working closely with our Global Category Business Units on the technical feasibility of packaging concepts at an early stage of the design process
  • taking the lead as a business packaging owner by collaborating with the Marketing and Procurement departments
  • sharing your technical packaging expertise in flexibles, carton and corrugated and rigid plastics


Are you eager to share your winning packaging experience with us?
Our employees are more than just employees. That’s why we’d like you to be creative, customer-focused and action-oriented. You know how to manage different relationships in project teams and with external partners, and always look for creative solutions during problematic situations. Standing alone doesn’t make you nervous; it ensures you always aim to learn more and to grow within your division. In addition, you can positively influence others and direct them effectively.

The experienced engineer we are looking for:

  • holds a HBO, bachelor’s or master’s degree in (food) packaging, industrial design engineering or another discipline related to technical packaging
  • has a minimum of 3 years’ experience in packaging innovation in FMCG or the packaging industry
