Bakkavor Group is delighted to announce that applications for its 2019 Graduate Scheme are now open.

The group, which is the leading international provider of fresh prepared food, is aiming to recruit 21 enthusiastic new graduates across seven different programmes by 2019, each one of which puts them on the fast track to senior management by giving real responsibility from the start.

Its seven different programmes cover product development, finance, HR, manufacturing, food technology, marketing and commercial sales and management.

With the 2019 intake, Bakkavor has recruited more than 130 graduates over recent years, which is testament to the company’s commitment to investing in the future talent of the business.

The Graduate Scheme involves a small number of placements in different business units, doing real jobs from day one, whilst being guided through a tailored leadership training programme.

The scheme looks to develop a number of specialist roles to support the business’s future growth.

Each programme offers a competitive starting salary and a signing-on bonus.

Pippa Greenslade, group HR director at Bakkavor, said: “Our Graduate Scheme is a fundamental part of our ‘grow your own people’ strategy.

"We believe it is essential to invest in developing graduates who have joined our scheme, knowing these individuals will help support the company’s continued growth.

"We are excited to welcome the next group of graduates this September and wish the best of luck to all candidates applying for our 2019 scheme”.
