Careers in Sales and Marketing

We are a leading provider of sustainable packaging solutions, paper products and recycling services worldwide. Our sales and marketing teams are crucial to our success. They play a vital role in increasing revenue, expanding our market presence, and improving our brand reputation.


They act as the voice of our organisation, promoting our products and services to meet market demands. Through their efforts, we aim to redefine packaging for a changing world. 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 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.

While feeling the support of a professional sizable multinational organization, DS Smith allows self-starters with an entrepreneurial mindset to flourish and develop their careers.
