Job description

If you’re looking for a career that gives you real accountability and an incredible level of variety, a manufacturing career at Bakkavor is for you. We use materials, labour and equipment to create thousands of food products every day. Your challenge will be to get them all together in the right place, in the right quantity – to be delivered at the right time.

You’ll work in two 12-month placements, doing real jobs with a varied product portfolio and different customers. You’ll spend some time focusing on Logistics, Planning or Engineering. And you’ll also take responsibility for managing operators on a line. In addition to on-the-job coaching and mentoring, you’ll experience training in subjects such as presentation skills, intelligent manufacturing, leadership and management. After two years, we’ll expect you to be working as a Supervisor or Section Manager, setting you up for a future senior operations role.

As well as a salary of £24,500, you’ll receive an additional £1000 payment when you start, plus another £1,000 if you successful complete your first year. We’ll also cover the costs for two 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.
