We are building a brand that represents the people of the world. It’s what you do that counts, and we are always looking to expand perspectives and voices to shape our future. We see you, we celebrate you, we want you! Who we are
You might know us as the inventors of the bath bomb, but there’s more to this great-smelling, partly employee-owned, family-run company than pioneering cosmetics. We believe our business should put more back into the world than it takes and demonstrates that capitalism can be a force for good. We put our people first and fight cruel practices like animal testing, promote regeneration, and show that it is what’s inside that counts - whether that’s an ingredient in a product or the minerals in a smartphone. What is the process improvement team?
The Process Improvement or (PI) team is a multi-disciplined function that contains all the broad necessary skillsets for supporting & managing change for Lush Manufacturing. Lush makes a vast range of cosmetics products that include shampoos, creams, solid products (soaps, massage bars, bath bombs etc) and perfumes from scratch across over sixteen dedicated factories here in Poole, Dorset. Our manufacturing process usually involves combining ingredients in mixing vessels, heating, pouring/shaping, conveying, labelling and packing them and as such, our day to day process improvement work involves improving these processes. Our work is not as simple as making a process faster or safer through R&D engineering or qualified purchasing, it requires planned communications, financial modelling, production experience and effective stakeholder management to ensure that the proposed changes are taken positively and will be implemented.
