Fresh prepared food manufacturer Bakkavor is recruiting for just over 1,800 jobs across its production sites in the UK.
Bakkavor works with a number of the UK’s major supermarkets producing fresh prepared meals, desserts, salads, pizza and bread. The company said its recruitment drive offers a competitive salary from a major UK employer, which currently employs 16,000 people across the nation and a further 3,000 globally.
By region, the majority of the vacancies can be found in Lincolnshire, with over 800 jobs spread among its six sites in the county. Further roles include 293 positions available in Scotland, 202 in Newark in Nottinghamshire, and 132 in Kent.
A wide range of positions are available for skilled and semi-skilled individuals including hygiene and production operatives, technical service managers, multi-skilled engineers, line leaders and section coordinators. Hours offered depend on the role and differ from day and night shift work and include permanent and part time roles. Successful applicants will be invited to meet a member of the Bakkavor team in an informal interview.
Donna-Maria Lee, chief people officer at Bakkavor Group, said: “We are delighted to be opening our doors to brilliant new colleagues within the local communities in which we are based. We offer a wide range of jobs available at a large number of our well-established sites, all offering career development opportunities as well as great benefits.
