A Packaging Technician

A Packaging Technician from Eastbourne explains what life's like in the packaging operations area.

Hello there, I work as a Packaging Technician at Teva in Eastbourne. That's my official job title, but lately I've been spending a lot of time training an influx of new Packaging Technicians that have joined the company.

I love being a trainer because there's something different to do each day. At the moment I'm guiding the technicians through the new shift system that Teva has adopted here. Technicians now operate in groups and rotate around the entire packaging complex, so they need to know how to run everything.

I enjoy working at Eastbourne because it's regarded as a 'Centre of Excellence for Packaging' within Teva.

I've worked in factory-type environments since leaving school at the age of 17. Before joining Teva I worked for a pharmaceuticals manufacturer and then a toiletries firm.

I enjoy working at Eastbourne because it's regarded as a 'Centre of Excellence for Packaging' within Teva. Teva has invested millions here to boost the site's capability and increase its packing capacity.

That should create some exciting opportunities at Eastbourne. And that's what I like about Teva, the opportunities are always there if you want to follow them up.

If you make suggestions, the company listens to what you have to say and will act on them if it's the right thing to do.

The training is good as well. I've done lots of training programmes over the years, ranging from lifting to engineering.

And finally I think Teva is a good employer because if you make suggestions, the company listens to what you have to say and will act on them if it's the right thing to do.
