Job Description

We are currently recruiting on behalf of our well respected and growing food manufacturing client based near Chard. We are assisting them with the recruitment of 2 Production Operatives to work from 22nd July – 14th September .

The role is a manual one, which requires physical strength, and the ability to work in a sometimes warm environment. The department is responsible for making cheese, from scratch, and is therefore a complex and involved process, managed through the use of machinery - duties will include:

•             Loading empty moulds into their state of the art automated production machinery

•             Monitoring the process to ensure that the machinery is running and working correctly

•             Regularly turning cheese (by hand) - this is the very manual and physically demanding aspect of the role.

•             Transferring products to different areas of the factory

•             Administration and record keeping

The positions are available on either a PM shift (16.30 – 01.00) with an enhancement for unsocial hours, or on day shift (08.00 – 17.00) in a department that is like a family, with most jobs relying on good teamwork to ensure satisfactory completion. So as well as being a real team player, other competencies include

•             Being diligent and following instructions from the experienced supervisory team

•             Understanding the importance of food hygiene, and how to achieve the required standards

•             Basic IT skills

•             Having the ability to read, write and speak the English language to a prescribed level, including numerical information

•             Understanding and applying safe working practices

•             Understanding the importance of an efficient production process
