With some of the most recognisable names in food retail on our customer list, keeping the production lines moving, meeting order targets and excellent quality control are all essential.  And this is the role of our Production Operatives.

Our recruitment process has evolved, and we now offer a group session for candidates where you will see a short presentation about the company and role.  We also provide a factory tour so you can see first hand what our production environment is like and hear from the people who do the role. We like to offer our candidates the chance to make their own decisions about Kettle Produce as a workplace with as much information as possible.

We have a variety of shift patterns - full time, part time and Under 18s.  There is also great potential for progression both within and outwith production.  Learn about the core of our business and it could set you up for bigger things!
