Careers in Information & Technology

We are a leading provider of sustainable packaging solutions, paper products and recycling services worldwide.


Our I&T team plays a critical role in enabling and transforming every part of our business across finance, HR, design, manufacturing and customer experience by automating digital processes, using predictive analysis and creating digital twins of machinery, manufacturing sites, or the whole business.

They start this process with a question: what kind of business do we want to be in the future, and how does technology make this possible? They also provide crucial data analytics that inform business decision-making and strategic planning and enable our people to perform their roles effectively, efficiently and securely.

And we do not just make the packaging the world touches every day. We are making changes happen across our industry with people who share our ambitions and want to make a positive difference. A better, more sustainable, and inclusive tomorrow is possible when we bring together the right people. People with a genuine desire to make things happen. Who support and challenge each other to make a difference through their work. Every day.  

Collectively, we are redefining packaging for a changing world and leading the transition to a low carbon, circular economy. It is what inspires our teams across the world. And we hope it will inspire you too.

At DS Smith, the Information and Technology team serves as strategic technology partners, shaping, designing and delivering a multi-year roadmap of business aligned technology transformation.
