  • Build category action plans in collaboration with key stakeholders
  • Coordinate with other key functional stakeholders including SQP, Supply Chain and Finance
  • Interface and alignment with EMEA category manager for Packaging, Co-manufacturing, Ingredients and Indirects to ensure that way of working is aligned to regional processes and priorities
  • Actively participate in, and support, a range of cross-functional project teams (marketing, technical, manufacturing, engineering quality, supply chain, finance) which deliver cost, quality & service optimisations, value improvement and innovation development
