Talent Spotting For The Next Generation
Working with the Packaging Society, RPC is sponsoring the 2017 Student and Schools Starpack Awards as part of its ongoing commitment to attract the next generation of packaging professionals in the UK market.
“Great packaging has a major impact and makes a significant difference in many end markets,” comments RPC Design Manager Brian Lodge. “The packaging industry has a proud heritage and it is vital that we maintain this by attracting the best new talent. We are therefore delighted to be supporting the Starpack education awards and helping to raise the profile of packaging as a long term career choice.”
RPC’s pro-active education policy also includes a graduate entry scheme and comprehensive apprentice programmes across its sites, along with internships, school visits and work placement opportunities. The company launched its on-site Apprentice Academy at the RPC Superfos Oakham site in 2014 and opened a specialist blow moulding training facility at its RPC Promens Rushden site the following year.
