Job Description

At Mondelēz International, we work hard, every day, to delight you with the quality brands you’ve grown up with. We devote ourselves to creating scrumptious snacks that will give you delicious moments - whether enjoying appetizing, crunchy biscuits with your family or taking a moment to indulge in a sweet, creamy chocolate treat and a chat with friends or simply chewing a refreshing piece of gum. And we’re hungry to find new ways of making life even easier and tastier for you and more joyful for us all. So we focus relentlessly on improving our products, our workplace, our alliances, our communities and our world.

In Poland, we have been operating since 1992 and have more than 4600 employees in several locations: Warsaw head office, sales force, 7 manufacturing plants: Skarbimierz, Bielany Wrocławskie, Jarosław, Płońsk, Cieszyn and Jankowice, as well as global Research, Development & Quality (RDQ) Center in Wroclaw.

In Research, Development, Quality & Innovation (RDQ&I), your skills can be the special ingredient that brings our brands to life. As part of a fantastic team of scientists, engineers and nutritionists, you’ll work tirelessly on product design or development, process development, quality, nutrition, sensory and food safety aspects to ensure we deliver a consistent, delightful consumer experience. RDQ&I is where you’ll turn great ideas into brilliant brands.

Want a small taste of life at Mondelez? Then sink your teeth into one of our big opportunities.

The main objectives of this role are to, independently, plan and deliver new packaging developments, packaging growth/productivity projects, preparing and maintaining pack specifications and to deliver technical support to MEU plants. The candidate will need to be able to manage multiple projects of varying complexity and interdependencies in line with the Mondelez methods, processes and ways of working. The role holder will need to assess risks appropriately and minimise them throughout the development phases. Attention to detail, problem solving competencies as well as a drive to deliver projects with excellence, will be key to success.
The job holder will need to build a significant network within RD&Q, MEU Marketing/Procurement/Manufacturing and externally with suppliers. Very good verbal and written communication skills are therefore essential. It will also be required for the job holder to be able to technically coach more junior team members (but not directly manage).
This position is based in Wroclaw, Poland but the work mentioned here is not limited to this facility only. It is a pan-European position and therefore some European travel (estimated around 15 to 20%) will be required.
