Food Prep Firm Creating Over 1,800 New Jobs In The UK

Food preparation specialist Bakkavör has announced plans to create over 1,800 new full and part time jobs in the United Kingdom.

The Bakkavör Group prepares food for most of the leading supermarket chains in the UK and already provides jobs for over 16,000 people.

The latest recruitment drive will see Bakkavör increase their headcount by around 12 per cent across their 23 sites around the UK.

The Group also employs a further 3,000 people in other countries, preparing ready meals, salads, desserts, pizzas and other bread.

The 1,801 new vacancies in the UK include a mix of roles, with full time, part time, shift work, temp and permanent positions all on offer at Bakkavör.

Launching the recruitment drive across the country, Bakkavör Group’s chief people officer, Donna-Maria Lee, said: “We are delighted to be opening our doors to brilliant new colleagues within the local communities in which we are based.”

“We offer a wide range of jobs available at a large number of our well-established sites, all offering career development opportunities as well as great benefits. All of our employees across our 23 sites in the UK benefit from first class training programmes which are focused on career progression and individual development.”

“The application process for all roles is now open and we have already started interviewing a number of enthusiastic candidates. We very much look forward to meeting more applicants and we hope that the roles we have available are able to turn into long term careers,” added Ms Lee.

One region set to benefit majorly from the Bakkavör hiring spree is Lincolnshire, which will see the company creating 700 of the vacancies, almost 40 per cent of the total recruitment plan for the UK.

Just some of the roles up for grabs at Bakkavör include warehouse jobs, accounts assistants and food production operatives. There are also managerial jobs on offer at the Group too.
