Job Description

Would you like to see a product on a supermarket shelf and think that you played an important role in getting it there? Are you passionate about providing quality food products that are delicious, innovative, and healthy for our consumers? Then this opportunity could be for you.


This opportunity could be your first step in a career within the food industry which has so many possibilities!  We have 2 positions available for 2021 within our Operations job family. Taking our developed products through the supply chain of planning, production, and delivery to our customers you will need to liaise and work collaboratively across a number of functions building your stakeholder management to deliver high quality finished goods to order for our key customers.

During your programme you would have 3 x 1-year placements which are all real job roles with real responsibilities.  Your degree studies are centred on a Chartered Manager degree through our academic partner Sheffield Hallam University (SHU).  You may know that SHU is a National Centre of Excellence for Food Engineering, featuring in the 2020 Good University Guide for teaching quality, and currently rated 82% for student satisfaction.  A number of our existing group colleagues are alumni and as we have been working in partnership with the university for a number of years, so we are confident that you will receive high quality education and will be well supported.

We will pay you a competitive starting salary for your job role (much higher than the National Minimum Wage for apprentices) and we will also pay all costs and expenses for University block-release study at Sheffield Hallam University.  We offer our Higher-level Apprentices a permanent contract of employment from the start so that you can be sure that we are fully invested in your success, and as a permanent member of our team you will be offered a great range of benefits too.

Duties could include:

  • Building knowledge of the company and processes
  • Procurement

  • Planning lines and products
  • Continuous business improvement
  • Running a product line
  • Team leadership
