    Our People

Successful people lead to a successful business

At Ardagh Group we strongly believe that the success of our business depends on the success of our people. We strive to create working environments where our employees feel valued, can work to their full potential and where their achievements are celebrated. We are creating an exciting future for Ardagh that is built on our core values of trust, teamwork and excellence.

More generally, we recognise that our employees hold commitments away from the workplace so we aim to ensure our workforce can effectively balance home life with their careers. We also intend to attract a diverse employee base with a wide variety of experience, qualifications, background and individual characteristics.

Developing talent for the future

We employ people who recognise the importance of delivering quality products and service and who share our drive for innovation. By challenging and rewarding in equal measure, we are able to attract and retain the most talented individuals in the business. As a constantly evolving company, opportunities arise across all functions and areas of the business, in many countries across the globe.

Ours is a challenging and complex industry; our workplaces are high-energy, focused environments, with exciting opportunities for the right people. We encourage employees to develop new ideas, new approaches and new abilities; we invest in the personal growth and professional development of everyone who works for us. These are some of the ways Ardagh attracts and retains the best in the business.
