Development Apprenticeship - Level 4

Do you want to know what it feels like to see a product you helped develop sit on a supermarket shelf?

Development isn’t just cooking products in the kitchen – it is about creativity, innovation, and the ability to turn your passion for food into a career. Our Apprenticeship in Food Development will allow you to explore the detail of each raw ingredient that goes into our products, develop ideas and recipes that transform into products that consumers want to buy, and identify where there are gaps in the market for new concepts. Development is crucial to ensuring that Bakkavor stays ahead of the market. In this role you will be working in both an office setting as well as the kitchens as you develop new products, refresh existing products, explore ingredients and design packaging.

From day one you will receive the support and training you need to progress into a career in development. Placements are usually as Development Technologists working within the New Product Development (NPD) team on idea generation, recipe development, new product trials and production launches. Throughout the programme you will gain a qualification as a Food Technologist and will be able to explore advanced career aspirations such as Senior Technologist or NPD Manager, just to name a few. Best of all, upon completing this one 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 Food Technologist qualification or equivalent
  • Pension Scheme
  • Guaranteed full-time permanent role at the end of your apprenticeship
