  • Strong organisational skills with the ability to multitask

Regarding progression, depending on the apprentices performance during the apprenticeship, there will be scope to offer them a full-time position in a department/ function that will be best suited to their interests.

We are an equal-opportunity, diverse and inclusive employer and take great pride in the training and skills development of our selected apprentices and would be keen to retain them if they showcase the same hardworking and professional ethics during the course of their apprenticeship.

Additional company benefits include Annual Christmas parties, external event invites, pension enrolment if opted in (we have not mentioned these previously so will leave it up to you).

Recognise yourself? Are you ready to step it up a notch and reach for the stars with one of the paper industry's most dynamic and progressive companies?
