Leading Beef Producer Creates 200 Entry Level Jobs & Apprenticeships

ABP Food Group, a leading beef producer in the UK, has announced plans to create 200 new entry level jobs and apprenticeships for young people.

The hiring spree by ABP has been facilitated by a partnership with Youth Employment UK, a not-for-profit organisation which is dedicated to tackling unemployment amongst young people in the UK.

The vacancies will be spread across ABP’s fourteen bases across the UK, with positions available in Birmingham, Doncaster, Ellesmere, Guildford, Langport, Shrewsbury, South Knowsley, Sturminster Newton, Wessex, Yetminster and York in England.

There are also opportunities for young people in Scotland’s Perth and Northern Ireland’s Lurgan and Newry.

Careers which youngsters could enter into with ABP under the latest recruitment drive include skill sectors as diverse as abattoir work, butchery, engineering, IT and technical positions.

Announcing the new opportunities at his firm, Bob Carnell, ABP UK’s Chief Executive Officer, said: “We have always been a youth friendly employer and it is particularly important to us to be involved with Youth Employment UK which plays a key role in connecting young people with job opportunities and providing them with support, inspiration and advice.”

“Our business has for decades worked with British farmers to bring quality meat to the table of UK homes and we are committed to bringing young people into our organisation, developing their skills and allowing them to flourish while doing our bit to boost the economy,” added the CEO.

Laura Jane Rawlings, Youth Employment UK’s Chief Executive Officer, also commented, saying: “We are delighted to be working with ABP UK and welcome them to our Youth Friendly Employer community. ABP UK is clearly committed to creating quality opportunities for young people and believes in the power of their organisation to support young people into great careers.”

“I am looking forward to helping them get the recognition they deserve as an employer of choice.”

“In today's youth unemployment climate, we need to see more employers making similar commitments to youth employment as ABP is,” added Ms Rawlings.
