Candidates will have previous experience working in a similar role within a chilled food processing environment. All candidates must have excellent working knowledge and understanding of food safety standards, as well as a proven track record of working safely. This role requires regular medium-heavy physical effort, and the ability to work quickly in an area which has limited space is important.

All candidates must be able to demonstrate highly effective verbal communication skills. The successful applicant will be a strong team player and be able to work well on their own initiative. In addition they will be hardworking, diligent and efficient, with good attention to detail.

Hours of work likely to be Monday to Friday from 11.30am - 8.00pm but we would look at other flexible start and finish times

Search is an equal opportunities recruiter and we welcome applications from all suitably skilled or qualified applicants, regardless of their race, sex, disability, religion/beliefs, sexual orientation or age.
