The Role

Reporting to the Packaging Manager, you will be part of a small team and be responsible for all aspects of developing new packaging concepts for a number of customers.

Either way, we are looking for someone with sound technical knowledge of varying materials i.e. paper, flexible plastics and films. You will also understand the importance of sustainability and future initiatives that will lead to responsible and innovative packaging solutions.
