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.

Bakkavor Group is a leading manufacturer of freshly prepared foods. We're specialists in developing own-brand products for many of the world's biggest grocery retailers and best-known food service operators. We make over 5,500 different products. Our UK customers include Tesco, Marks & Spencer, Sainsbury's, Waitrose, Asda and Morrisons. Internationally, we work with brands including Starbucks, 7-Eleven, Pizza Hut and Target.

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.

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.
