About us:

We are the people behind method + ecover. We’ve always done things differently – we’re fearless thinkers, mad scientists and adventurous designers who believe that making soap leads to brave ideas, bold inventions and beautiful bubbles. We started small but we have big plans to make the world a cleaner, greener, more colourful place. We invite everyone to join us as we pioneer a future where doing business is doing good for all.

Let’s get one thing straight – you’re not coming here to just sell soap, or cleaning products. You’re joining us to move the hearts, souls and minds of others all over the world that see the world differently. We think about cleaning as an act of creative expression, a gesture of rebellion, and, yes, an escape from the normal. We take cleaning seriously – but not ourselves.

Alongside our friends Mrs Meyers and Babyganics, we are collectively known as Lifestyle Brands and are part of the SC Johnson family.

What’s the role?

Key to our success at PAD is sourcing our iconic packaging, alongside our commitment to sustainability and exceptional design.

You will help bring award winning designs to shelves all over Europe and showcase our commitments to the environment, people and product excellence.

Experience we need:
  • This is a fast-paced role, so we envision that you will need at least 5 years procurement experience (direct material sourcing preferred) to be able to hit that ground running!
  • Strong knowledge of PowerPoint, SAP and Excel
  • Self-starter, not afraid to get your hands dirty with bags of enthusiasm and energy
  • Strong commercial instincts with tendering proficiency

What’s in it for you?
  • Competitive pay & benefits
  • Summer working hours
  • ‘Build your own’ learning programme
  • Free breakfast & snacks
  • 25 days annual holiday
  • Pension, Life cover & Health Insurance
