What's the job?
A crucial role in the day to day production and distribution of our quality products.
Our Higher Apprenticeship in Manufacturing are an ideal opportunity if you are interested in the different stages involved in efficient food production. It will give you a clear understanding of the key manufacturing processes including planning, safe machinery operation and resource management. Working in manufacturing also involves linking with other functions within the business such as Technical, Development, Finance and Human Resources so requires good communication skills and the ability to work effectively as part of a team.
Full support and training will be provided to help you progress quickly. Depending on the site, the scheme may offer placements within a factory based role with responsibility for a team, running production lines, quality and output costs. The work environment can be very cold, and when busy will entail being inside for long periods of time. However, it is also a very positive place to work and the experience gained will be invaluable for the future. It provides you with your ‘first steps’ into manufacturing, and future career aspirations could be Team Leader, Section Manager or Factory Manager to name a few.
Best of all, upon completing this two year apprenticeship you will be guaranteed a full-time role with Bakkavor.
