I joined 2 Sisters in 2017 as part of the first cohort of the graduate trainee management scheme. My first role was trainee production manager at Five Star Fish in Grimsby. Prior to joining the scheme I was a transport and logistics manager.

I’m currently a Technologist at Meal Solutions’ Cavaghan and Gray factory in Carlisle. I am responsible for ensuring that our products are safe to consume and are made to the highest quality standards. The main challenges of the role are monitoring the quality of the ingredients used daily, continuously monitoring factory process controls and assessing the quality and safety of the finished product.

The Technical department plays a key role in ensuring that our retail customer has confidence in our ability to produce excellent products that meet their quality standards. That trust and confidence has recently led to an increase in product range and volume demand. As a result Cavaghan and Gray has recently seen investment at the site to increase capacity.  

What I most enjoy about working for 2 Sisters is the fact that the job is challenging and no two days are the same. It’s a fast paced environment that keeps you on your toes but there are excellent managers and colleagues who are great team players and mentors.
