Key Responsibilities

This exciting new role has been created to ensure that we work to unlock the most efficient production model for our fastest growing category Pukkaware (Pukka Gifting). You’ll work hard to delight our customers by delivering great service levels, and optimise quality, service, cost, stock, and responsiveness.

Pukkaware is at the heart of our business and our fastest growing category. Our beautiful gift collections allow us to drive market penetration and enable our consumers to trial a variety of teas, whilst sharing Pukka’s purpose, and inspiring people around the globe to nurture healthy and happier lives through powerful organic plants.
