Job description

If you’re interested in seeing the real workings of a business at the leading edge of food manufacturing, this is the path to take. Join Bakkavor on this CIMA affiliated programme, and you’ll experience far more than basic accountancy and finance. You’ll be part of our career-defining Accelerated Management Scheme.

Bakkavor Group is a leading manufacturer of freshly prepared foods. We’re specialists in developing own-brand products for many of the world’s biggest grocery retailers and best-known food service operators. We make over 5,500 different products. Our UK customers include Tesco, Marks & Spencer, Sainsbury’s, Waitrose, Asda and Morrisons. Internationally, we work with brands including Starbucks, 7-Eleven, Pizza Hut and Target.

You’ll be involved in the decision-making processes that help our organisation to grow and thrive. We’ll see to it that you interact with all areas of our business, from manufacturing and supply chain, to new product development and commercial and marketing. We’ll be giving you the training and experience you need to gain the CIMA qualification within three years. Ultimately, it’s about giving you the in-depth understanding you need to reach a key management role within five years.

As well as a salary of £24,500, you’ll receive an additional £1,000 payment when you start, plus another £1,000 if you successful complete your first year. We’ll also cover the costs for 2 weeks B&B or rent, plus reasonable removal costs. Our sites are located throughout the UK and your placements could take you from the south of England to Scotland. There may even be the chance to work in one of our international sites. So you’ll need to be flexible.
