Current Role

Commercial Trainee 

Your first couple of years will be spent gaining an understanding of the different disciplines within our commercial team. From helping our Area Sales Managers to win work by preparing presentations and proposals and attending trials, to working closely with our Customer Champion team who look after our customers and make sure the customer gets what they want when they want it. You will also work alongside our our technical supply chain team who understand all there is to know about packaging films and printing.

We will help you to develop your skills needed for the role, and will continually help you to develop as a person. 

Once you have completed the training, we will work together to see which team or area of the business suits best. 

Please contact 07785 293232 for more information.


Do you possess personal qualities in line with our culture?

Even if we don't have a suitable role at the moment, we are always looking for 'our type of people'.

You may want to work in a Production / Warehouse environment, or maybe you are technically minded and like to take things apart to see how they work. Maybe you are interested in Sales and Marketing, Customer Service, Finance, or QA? 

If you are a couple of years into your career, are ready for a new challenge or are wanting to develop with guidance and training, then we will help you to not only recognise your strengths, but invest in you for the long term. 

You don't need experience or knowledge of packaging. You don't need A levels or a degree. You just need fit our culture, be hard working, respectful, and most importatly, be up for a laugh!

We are passionate about our people. We provide a lengthy list of benefits including a £2 million bonus scheme, complaints rewards scheme, year-end performance-based bonus, birthday bonus or day off, additional weeks holiday after 5 years’ service, life insurance, personal incident insurance, medical insurance, training and support, a personal development program, social nights out, summer BBQs, Christmas parties, plus lots more!      

If so, then please contact Carol on or 07785 293232 for a chat.

Our Culture

By accident or design, every company has a culture. At one of our weekend 'ideas' sessions we all decided ours could be captured in these words, Caring, Sharing and Being Different. They define our attitude to our customers, our suppliers and each other, and form the heart of our business philosophy.

Our Culture

What is it like working here? 

Here at National Flexible, we are about more than the name above the door. As the UK’s largest distributor of polypropylene, laminates, and special films, we partner with large food manufacturers such as Greggs, Premier Foods (Mr Kipling’s), Burtons Biscuits, and are a leading player in the packaging industry.

Our success is only possible with a talented team and it’s the passion of our people that makes us who we are today.

Embracing innovation, sustainability, and diversity, we are a business that will bring out the best in you, whilst providing you with the opportunity to grow.  

Gallup's Q12 Employee Engagement Survey

This is a set of 12 questions that have been asked of over 2.7m employees over 50 diverse industries around the globe. Gallup collates the results so that we can benchmark ourselves against the best in the UK, Europe and the World. The survey is annonymous.

In November 23 we took part for the first time. We had a 100% submission rate.

We are very proud that we scored 3 times the UK average. However, that doesnt mean that there aren't areas to work on and at our weekend workshop in January we reviewed what actions we can take to improve our scores even more this year.
