Bakkavor recruiting for over 1,800 jobs across the UK

Posted on 5 Apr 2022 by The Manufacturer

Bakkavor, a leading manufacturer of fresh prepared food (FPF), is looking to hire just over 1,800 individuals to work within its UK sites.

Set against two years of challenges caused by the pandemic, and amidst continued economic uncertainty and rising cost of living, the roles offer a welcome boost to employment across local communities.

Bakkavor works with a number of the UK’s major supermarkets producing fresh prepared meals, desserts, salads, pizza and bread. The recruitment drive offers a competitive salary from a major UK employer which currently employees 19,000 people across the nation, and a further 2,000 globally.

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.

By region, the majority of the vacancies can be found in Lincolnshire, with over 800 jobs spread among its six sites in the county. A further 293 roles are to be filled in Scotland, 202 in Newark, and 132 in Kent.
