Fresh produce is an interesting and varied industry. Your problem-solving skills will be put to the test as you will encounter seasonal challenges, varying raw product quality and tight deadlines as we can’t store our fresh products so it is a tight turnaround.
You will need to have great attention to detail and a passion for food. This role is about making sure our products are prepared to a high standard and not accepting anything less than perfect products going out of the door.
Depending on the site you are based at you could be chopping and preparing vegetables and salad, preparing a pasta pot mix, picking and packing products into boxes, operating machinery, loading and unloading product onto the production lines.
If you’re eager to learn the whole process you may get to work in different areas of the factory where you will get involved in different stages of the production.
You will be working in an FMCG (Fast moving consumer goods) 24hr Food production environment.
Lettuce likes to be cool so temperatures on average are 3°C - 5°C so it is cold, think what it would be like to work in a fridge! Don’t worry, you get a company fleece and plenty of free tea and coffee on breaks.
It’s a fast pace environment but if you enjoy thinking on your feet, getting stuck into things and have a passion to be the best then we want to hear from you.
You will be standing / moving around between machines so on your feet for long periods of time with 3 x 30 minute breaks throughout your shift.
Covid update: All of our sites are Covid secure. We will provide you with PPE and there are plenty of hand sanitising stations.
