Have you ever walked into a supermarket and wondered where the ideas behind the thousands of products on the shelves have come from?
At Bakkavor we put the consumer at the heart of our Business, so come and be a part of the team that inspires and informs our exciting innovation plans.
When you take your first career steps on to a Marketing apprenticeship at Bakkavor, you will not only have the opportunity to work with some of the UK's largest food retailers but also understand the journey that the products you see on their shelves, have been on, from identifying an initial market trend or consumer need, through to scanning it at the checkout.
You'll have a desire to understand buyer behaviour and have a nose for identifying unmet consumer needs and any product gaps in the market. We work closely with our commercial and development teams to provide market & consumer insight to inform and influence the development of exciting & innovative ranges that you see on supermarket shelves.
Through research and analysis of various data sources you will gain an understanding of what makes shoppers tick, why they choose to shop where they do and ultimately purchase the products that end up on their plates.
During the two years you will study for a CIM Foundation level qualification, which will give you a great insight into Marketing principles. Whilst also working with both the insight and customer teams.
As a leading manufacturer of fresh prepared foods in the UK, Bakkavor is always looking for talented individuals who have a can-do attitude and want to make a difference. We encourage personal initiative and empower our people to make things happen. Our approach is informal and our culture is highly service-orientated.
Best of all, upon completing this two year apprenticeship you will be guaranteed a full-time role with Bakkavor.
- Earn above apprentice National Minimum Wage
- Paid time off work for personal development
- Long term progression through the company
- Gain a Chartered Institute of Marketing qualification
