Employee-owned Business Looking to Recruit 32 New People

Kite Packaging continues to invest and will bring new jobs to their UK-wide branch divisions

Since its formation as a start-up back in 2001, Kite Packaging has led the way in packaging innovation and has grown to become one of the UK’s largest, nationally based suppliers of packaging with a turnover in excess of £50million. As an employee-owned company, Kite's employees are at the forefront of everything they do and this year the Kite Group was named as one of the “Top 1000 companies to inspire Britain’ by the London Stock Exchange, in their annual report. Following another record year of sales growth Kite Packaging’s e-commerce division, based at Torrington Avenue in Coventry and several of their UK wide branches, are embarking on a program of significant investment in both infrastructure and people to drive the business even further in 2017.

Kite Packaging are leaders  in the ‘business to business’ e-commerce market and are also a major accounts service provider, supplying packaging materials to a broad range of customers across the UK, through their branch network.  Their website has led the way in delivering the highest standards of technology driven user experience, with the companies philosophy, “Customer satisfaction matters so much more when you own the business” at the heart of everything they do.

Kite are expanding their site on Torrington Avenue, demonstrating an on-going commitment to investment in the area, acquiring neighbouring commercial property to support their rapid expansion and plans for future growth. The focus of expansion is also happening across the group with Kite’s UK-wide branch divisions also looking to expand. The 32 new roles are across a broad range of departments from their warehouse operation, IT, marketing, sales, customer service and credit control.

Announcing their latest and biggest recruitment project yet, the company commented “Good businesses need good people in order to be successful and our philosophy of employee-ownership has attracted the best in the business. We have a clearly stated aim for growth, and the creation of 32 new jobs is an important part of our strategy. We are searching for bright, dynamic and hardworking people to join the e-commerce team in Coventry and our UK-wide branch divisions in Rotherham and Swindon to help us achieve that next level of success”.

Kite is a technology led business with an entrepreneurial ethos that breeds creativity. Key roles include experienced .NET developers, front-end web designers, product category managers, a digital marketing analyst, assistant commercial manager, customer service agents, 12 experienced call centre operatives, warehouse pickers and forklift drivers - all within their e-commerce division based in Coventry.

Their Swindon branch is looking to recruit a class 1 driver, internal account manager and business development manager across Oxfordshire and Berkshire and their Rotherham branch is looking to recruit a buyer and in-the-box solutions specialist.
