Fresh prepared food supplier Bakkavor is welcoming 47 new recruits to its team as part of its ‘grow your own’ people strategy.
The group has hired 26 graduates and 21 apprentices, who will be based across a number of its sites in specialist roles to support the business’s growth.
The graduates are joining Bakkavor’s HR, commercial, manufacturing technical, development and finance teams. They will complete placements in different business units, be actively involved in live jobs from day one, and be guided through a tailored leadership training programme.
The apprentices are starting higher or advanced apprenticeships in specialisms such as engineering, supply chain, HR, development, technical and procurement at sites across the UK, including Wigan, London, Lincolnshire and Hampshire.
Pippa Greenslade, Bakkavor’s group HR director, said: “Once again, we’re delighted to be welcoming a new intake of graduates and apprentices to Bakkavor as part of our commitment to early careers.
“The fresh prepared food market is one of the most innovative and fast-moving markets in the world. As a group, we firmly believe that our future growth depends on the talent we attract, develop and support so that we can maintain and strengthen our leading position.”
The 2018 graduate scheme is open for applications from 2 October 2017 and the apprentice scheme will open at the beginning of 2018.
