All about Sustainable Products and Packaging Recruitment

Sustainability touches every facet of commerce and many organisations are adjusting the products they manufacture and the packaging they sit within. As consumers, investors, employees and wider business stakeholders become more eco-conscious (reusing, repurposing and recycling), product development teams, purchasing and supply chain functions are moving decision making to find more environmentally friendly alternatives.

Our networks span Product Stewardship, Life Cycle Assessment, Product Development, Packaging specialists including Ecotoxicology, REACH, Sustainable Supply Chain, Circular Economy and Materials Science and Regulatory Compliance such as CLP.

At Allen & York, we’ve been working with clients since 1993 on sustainability challenges across all industry sectors, helping to source best fit professionals for bespoke sustainability requirements. We’re adept at partnering with organisations with complex, cross-border supply chains and clients who manufacture and supply goods across the globe.

According to the World Economic Forum, consumers are willing to pay more for manufactured goods from sustainable companies. As sustainable products and packaging demonstrate social accountability and robust CSR policies, this is good for business. From a brand - and employer brand - perspective, for consumer loyalty, for innovation (striving to do better), environmental (carbon footprint reduction) and cost savings.

We have a network of candidates who understand how this is good for business and they make it their business to make a difference. If you’re looking to hire in Sustainable Products and Packaging - from Regulatory Affairs to Product Stewardship and Supply Chain to Corporate Sustainability - then don’t hesitate to contact us. We’ll deliver on your permanent and freelance recruitment needs and reduce your time to hire, saving you time and money.
