Creating, designing, and developing innovative packaging options for products.
Roles such as this will be responsible for overseeing the whole manufacturing process and ensuring that it is completed accurately and safely.
Entry-level roles will usually start in the region of £18,000-£30,000 dependent on the industry and skills required. These can be lower if the job is part of an apprenticeship or a trainee role. From there, salaries increase with the responsibility level and some can reach over £100,000.

Brexit has been a key challenge to the industry in recent times. Changes to customs procedures and the paperwork required has caused huge hold-ups at the border. Uncertainty over the volume of imports and exports to the EU also casts concern over the future of manufacturing.
There is also the rising impact of technology. The reliance on advances in technology can streamline production processes and potentially impact the amount of jobs that are needed, however there are also cost implications for adopting such technology and supervisory positions needed.
