Bakkavor, the manufacturer of fresh prepared food, has created 1,500 food production jobs across its 23 UK factories.
The company produces meals, salads, pizza and bread, and desserts for the UK’s major supermarkets, including Tesco, M&S, Sainsburys and Waitrose, and employs around 17,000 people in the UK, and a further 2,000 globally.
Regionally, Bakkavor is specifically recruiting for 680 jobs across its Lincolnshire sites, with a further 196 roles to be filled in Nottingham, and 53 in Leicestershire.
Donna-Maria Lee, Chief People Office at Bakkavor, says: “At Bakkavor, we’re immensely proud of our people and I would like to thank all our colleagues that have worked so hard during the pandemic to help us maintain food supply to the nation, helping to keep the supermarket shelves stocked at a critical time.
“As we re-emerge from lockdown, we have a wide range of jobs available at a large number of our well-established sites, all offering great career development opportunities. It’s important we continue to invest in the communities where we do business and we hope our employment drive will help many families to rebuild their lives after more than a year of lockdown.”
