Business Development Manager – Leyland


About Us

Affinity packaging has been on a fantastic journey – growing from being a local, family run packaging manufacturer to a nationally recognised carton supplier with an envious selection of machinery available to our customers. We’re unique in the UK in that we can supply the full range of a customer’s portfolio – large and small format so we can supply the full portfolio range, as well as digital printing through our sister company.

With this growth, we are looking to grow our sales team by adding a new business specialist. If you’ve worked in packaging before that would help, but much more important is having a hunger to be out meeting potential new customers face to face to win long term business.


What’s in it for you

  • A base salary of £30,000 – £40,000 + commission
  • Car or car allowance
  • Hybrid working – we’d ask you come on to site (Leyland) 2 days a week so you can keep close to the rest of the teams.

It’s not about micromanagement – its about results. And it’s not about winning one off orders – we want customers to stay with us for the long term, so we want you to not only bring them on board but also be a point of contact whilst they settle into a way of working with our internal sales team.

You’ll have the support of the incredibly experienced senior leadership team who know the packaging market, and have high standards throughout the business. This trust in the SLT is shown by the level of investment made recently by the owners of the business – you’re going to be part of a growing business that is clear in its goals and direction of growth.
In a market worth £1.3 billion there is huge potential and Affinity has a genuinely unique position. We’re clear where we can add real value to our customers and how we are different.


Why Affinity Packaging

  • Affinity has been a packaging/print manufacturer for over 120 years, so we have pedigree. We have a great mix of smaller local customers, through to big national names that you will easily recognise – our manufacturing equipment means we can service a wide range of customers. This means there is a huge amount for you to go after.
  • No lengthy process. Send over your CV or click apply, and then we can have an initial video call over Teams. If it’s a match, a face to face meeting with the Sales & Marketing Director and Managing Director to show you what we’re all about.
  • Build your own future – with a company the size of Affinity Packaging, there is genuine scope to create your own career path. We can be clear what that can look like and what you need to do to get there.
