A great place to work

10 March 2022

Our UK Poultry Scunthorpe team recently welcomed work coaches from their local Jobcentre to the factory and gave them an insight into our business and current vacancies.

The aim of the visit to the site, based on Foxhills Industrial Estate, was to dispel the local misconceptions about ‘the chicken factory’.

Praising the whole team, the work coaches were very impressed with the cleanliness and organisation of the factory, plus the support which is provided to our colleagues, such as a subsidised breakfast and being given a free top to keep them warm in the cool environment.

They concluded that the factory is one of the best places locally for someone to build their career and to meet personal aspirations, such as completing an internal apprenticeship, whilst earning good money.

Diane Pinder, senior HR manager, said: “We have a great working relationship with the Scunthorpe Jobcentre.

“We are keen to attract new colleagues who are either interested in a long-term career in the food industry or just earning good pay for a good day’s work. Plus, you’ll have access to benefits such as discounts to restaurant and various retail stores. 

“We’ve made many changes to pay rates and shift patterns, as well as introducing our week-long induction.

“It is the perfect ‘soft landing’ to our 12-week journey guiding our new starters through the training and processes to give them the best chance to succeed.

“Working in the food manufacturing sector has many different job roles that you may not be aware of and there is excellent scope for progression.”
