The typical day of a Base Operative involves working in a small team to achieve a common goal. You will work closely with the Team Leader and Quality Control to ensure the products are up to our high standard.
Tasks can include hand shaping/stretching products, applying toppings, ensuring that products are sized correctly, feeding the product through a flow wrapper, and disposing of waste; all using a clean as you go process. 

 The role is an entry-level position within the business so we do not require any you to have any previous experience and full training will be provided. This is a great opportunity with a large, multinational company who pride themselves on giving people the chance to reach their full potential. We offer lots of progression opportunities throughout the factory into both general and specialised positions.
