Packaging Technology roles

One of the biggest lessons we learn when joining the packaging sector is that it’s so much more than designing packs and printing pouches. When so much modern industry and commerce relies on constant innovation and performance from the sector, it serves as a stark reminder of just how valuable our industry is.


Upward momentum is absolutely crucial, both in terms of new innovations and new members of the packaging workforce. At the Packaging Collective, we believe that fresh blood, bringing new ideas and technology to the table, while building on legacy operations that have stood the test of time, is how we build a stronger and more resilient future. Part of this remit is opening up, promoting and amplifying roles in the industry that allow individuals to flourish.


We want to highlight some of the exciting roles available from PA Consulting Group, a strategic consultancy that helps businesses make better and more profitable use of data and innovation. The business supports a diverse range of industry sectors, from commercial and retail through to life sciences, healthcare and manufacturing.


Remember, a packaging role is never ‘just’ packaging – it’s all about combining skills with vision, and translating science into real-world innovation. Whether you’re new to the packaging sector or more experienced, check out some of the packaging technology roles currently available:
