A number of jobs found in the textile mills could be transferred to a paper mill.  Paper had to be hung up to dry, baled, cut, sold, etc. Here are a few specialty jobs.

Blaxter/Bleacher: bleacher cloth or wood pulp for paper in a Bleachery
Caffler or Rag picker: collected rags
Hotpresser: pressed paper between hot glazing sheets to smooth or glaze it
Layer: paper mill worker at a particular process
Rag cutter: cut rags into pieces for papermaking
