Technical Food Operator Apprenticeship
Salary: £11,857.50 (starting salary, increasing in the second year to £17,786.25)
Join our manufacturing team based at the Ashford site where we make a whole range of food products that you will recognise from Batchelor’s Cup-a-Soup and Pasta’N’Sauce to Paxo stuffing to Angel Delight!
You will be expected to put safety first – that of yourself and others. You will be trained in health and safety policies and procedures.
Then it is about the quality of the product – ensuring that you process the food to the right quality and food safety standards. Again, you will be fully trained in these procedures which will include regular quality checks of codes and seals and maintaining Good Manufacturing Practice (GMP)/ good housekeeping.
You will gain a clear understanding of production targets and ways to improve performance.
The apprenticeship training is a hands-on, exciting and practical programme where you will work in a team side by side with other Technical Operators sharing learning and ideas.
The Level 3 Advanced Food Process Operator programme takes 24 months to complete and is delivered on site by an external training provider working closely with on-site mentors.
Workshops will cover food safety, health and safety, preventative maintenance activities and Continuous Improvement (CI) techniques. On completion of this programme, you will be able to evaluate and make improvements to safety, quality and performance in the food factory environment.
If interested, please register your interest in the roles which are due to start in September 2021.
