Bakkavor continues strong apprenticeship drive

Bakkavor Group, the leading international provider of fresh prepared foods, is set to recruit 26 new apprentices in 2018 as it further develops the skills of enthusiastic individuals who want to embark on a career in the food manufacturing industry.

The scheme has vacancies which are nationwide and span across a variety of functional roles including Marketing, Engineering, Manufacturing, Technical, Processing, Procurement and Chef.

Successful applicants will experience real responsibility from day one, contributing to key business activities and projects, whilst at the same time studying towards a relevant, nationally recognised qualification.
