Being involved in a creative and cost conscious team has been a challenge that Sam has embraced 100%. That’s what makes this story such a great read.
Joined in July, 2012 – SEO Executive
Current Role – R&D Manager
Recently graduated (2012) with a degree in law, Sam responded to a Supplement Factory job advert because he wanted to pursue something that had always excited him – writing product and advertising copy.
This initially took the form of preparing short product descriptions for a relatively small range of products on sales platforms such as Amazon and eBay. Over time, the number of platforms increased and copy was required on a daily basis that was unique to Supplement Factory. This helped the brand to establish a consistent ‘voice’ that it could use when communicating with its customers.
Due to the amount of research that Sam was undertaking in order to learn about our products, the products of our competitors, and the industry in general, his role quickly evolved and his input became valuable when deciding how to create new products. Eventually, Sam was given the chance to build his own New Product Development department which would cover all aspects of Research & Development for the company.
His responsibilities today include creating product recipes and formulations, ensuring legal compliance, writing product packaging text, calculating manufacturing costs, preparing marketing presentations, and researching the latest food ingredient trends. He gets to travel all around the world – recent trade shows have taken him to Geneva, Frankfurt and Las Vegas – and he often still gets to do what originally brought him to the company: writing exciting and unique website copy.
What Sam Says
“Despite being the longest standing Supplement Factory employee, my time at the company really has flown by. The company has grown so fast and expanded into so many different areas that every day seems to bring fresh experiences and challenges.”
“At FORZA (Supplement Factory’s parent company) I have been supported both personally and professionally, having been given the opportunity to grow into a role that suits my own interests and skill set. Creative thinking, entrepreneurship and personal development have always been encouraged by the management team, which has allowed me to grow in confidence and feel like a valued member of the team.”
