Do you have experience working within packaging with direct exposure to the food or drinks industry with a love for working with a forward thinking and innovative team?

The hiring company is a large business who produce to retailers nationwide and they are currently looking for someone who understands consumer behaviors and gets a thrill from seeing their packaging on a shelf. All they ask is that you have a strong understanding of the development, manufacturing and the printing process.
