DS Smith is a leading provider of sustainable fibre-based packaging worldwide, which is supported by recycling and papermaking operations. We play a central role in the value chain across sectors including e-commerce, fast moving consumer goods and industrials.
Through our purpose of ‘Redefining Packaging for a Changing World’ and our Now and Next sustainability strategy, we are committed to leading the transition to the circular economy, while delivering more circular solutions for our customers and wider society – replacing problem plastics, taking carbon out of supply chains and providing innovative recycling solutions. Our bespoke box-to-box in 14 days model, design capabilities and innovation strategy sits at the heart of this response.
Headquartered in London and a member of the FTSE 100, DS Smith operates in 34 countries employing around 30,000 people and we are a Strategic Partner of the Ellen MacArthur Foundation. Our history can be traced back to the box-making businesses started in the 1940s by the Smith family.
At DS Smith we have a concept of Growing Together which describes the way we approach people development. Growing Together is a two-way commitment between employees and the business. It is a way of working, a mind-set and a commitment.
One of our strategic goals is to realise the potential of our people. This is only possible if we provide developmental opportunities to our people that allow them to grow, contribute more effectively and enjoy the rewards of a successful career.
People development is more than just changing jobs. It is about growing through experiences in both familiar and unfamiliar situations within a supportive environment.
