My client is a leading FMCG manufacturer based in the Peterborough area. They are globally recognised, and their products are exported worldwide. Due to continued growth they are looking for a Graduate Packaging Technologist to join their brilliant packaging department.

This is a great opportunity for a fresh design graduate who has a passion for product design and / or packaging, to join a global business - highly respected in their field.
