The search is on for the next generation of manufacturing, technical and development apprentices.

Bakkavor Group, which has factories in Spalding, Bourne, Holbeach St Marks and Sutton Bridge, is looking to attract school leavers or those starting new careers who want hands-on experience in a dynamic food manufacturing environment.

Successful applicants will be paid above the recommended weekly wage for apprentices during their two-year apprenticeship and work towards a qualification in food industry skills.

Vocational training is provided at the University of Lincoln’s Holbeach campus.

Apprentices will be involved in the process of developing new products and learn the different manufacturing stages of food production, and ensuring all food standards are met.

Pippa Greensdale, group HR director, said: “Our advanced apprenticeships hold an exciting opportunity to become involved in large scale food manufacturing and new product development.

“There is a real sense of pride from our apprentices knowing that it is due to their work that food on the consumers’ plates in not only safe, but of first class quality to eat.”
