Fresh prepared foods manufacturer Bakkavor is to recruit for 300 roles at its Bourne, Lincolnshire salad factory.

The manufacturer – which already employs more than 1,200 people at the site – is recruiting for a number of different disciplines, including quality assurance, technical services, production operatives and warehouse operatives. Full and part-time roles are available, across both day and night shifts. 

Bakkavor Salads Bourne general manager Jonathan Zair said: “This is an exciting time for our Bourne site as we continue to develop and grow our business and we’d love people to join to be part of this success. 

Community commitment 

“If you are looking for a career change and to work in a diverse team of people, where your personal development is core to our business values, please do get it in touch and find out more about the roles available. We are proud of how we work together to make fantastic products as well as our community commitment.” 

Bakkavor recently announced that it was seeking 60 applicants for its September intake of apprentices, with opportunities available to gain Intermediate, Higher or Advanced Apprenticeships in a range of specialisms.  

These included engineering, finance, HR, hygiene, learning & development, manufacturing, process technology, product development, Safety Health & Environment, supply chain, warehouse & logistics, facilities management and continuous improvement. 

Pay increases  

The manufacturer also announced it was to introduce a discretionary pay increase over and above the business’s normal annual pay award as a ‘thank you’ to its colleagues for the part they played in maintaining food supply throughout the COVID-19 pandemic. 

Meanwhile, earlier this month, Müller Milk & Ingredients launched a recruitment campaign for more than 150 jobs​ aimed at maintaining customer service levels of over 99% for own-label dairy customers. 

The company said it had full time and part time vacancies nationwide, ranging from HGV drivers, driver trainers and driver apprentices, to dairy production and distribution operatives.
