What's the job?
A career in Technical at Bakkavor means feeling a sense of pride in knowing that you have ensured the food on consumers’ plates is safe to eat.
You will be given the chance to work alongside many different departments to see how a kitchen concept is made ‘real’ and manage the process through to see a product hit the retailer shelves. Understand customer needs on technical matters and provide both interface and effective communication to enhance customer and supplier’s perception of Bakkavor. You will learn about areas such as process design and food science in the context of food safety legislation and quality standards.
If you are a methodical thinker interested in learning the customer, safety, quality and legislative standards necessary for successful, large scale, food manufacturing, then our Advanced apprenticeship in Technical Process is an ideal opportunity for you.
You will be provided with full support and training in order to kick start your career into becoming a future leader of food technology in Bakkavor. This technical role focuses on the key business areas of food safety and product quality and will involve an apprentice working alongside other departments to ensure that all manufacturing is done correctly, safely and to a high standard of quality. You will attain this understanding partly through gaining a nationally recognized qualification as well as through work-based experience. Future career aspirations could include Senior Process Technologist, Quality Manager and Technical Manager to name a few.
Best of all, upon completing this two year apprenticeship you will be guaranteed a full-time role with Bakkavor.
