Excellent career progression prospects across the Bakkavor group


We are the leading provider of fresh prepared food in the UK, with an international presence in the US and China. Our 19,000 employees operate from 39 locations, developing and producing innovative food for a wide variety of occasions and budgets. In the UK, we work with leading grocery retailers, focusing on their own label brands.

A fantastic opportunity for a Learning Procedure Associate has arisen to work for the Bakkavor group, based at our Elveden - London site with UK travel.  The post could also be based at our Cumberland, Park Royal or Harrow sites, if more suitable for the right candidate.



Job Purpose:


The key purpose of this role is to write, update, proofread, maintain and standardise learning content such as SOPs, CCPs and so on across various UK sites.  You will work alongside the Learning Procedure Lead to keep the business-as-usual compliance documentation up to date. 

Using your excellent influencing and rapport building skills, you will work collaboratively with stakeholders and other key players to develop bespoke learning documentation together with the robust assessments.

Your role will include inputting new and existing content into a new standardised template and updating the content as per the requests from site. The successful candidate will need to build strong relationships across the business and deliver clear and effective communication in order to drive standardisation of content where possible. You will need to be comfortable to ask questions to site requestors to clarify updates or ask probing questions to get a greater understanding of what is required.

You will also have a keen eye for ambiguities and to make collaborative decisions on ways to put these right and present a more streamlined document.

You must also have the ability to demonstrate close attention to detail in order to manage version control to facilitate a robust strategy.

This will be a fast-paced role, with high volume and tight turnaround timescales, so you must be able to work under pressure in a logical and methodical manner across various sites.  This role is site based and will involve regular travel across multiple sites.


Essential skills:


  • You will need to have over 3 years’ experience of working in the factory setting, where you have previously been responsible for writing or updating SOPs and other material from health, safety or technical standards
  • Must be IOSH and Food Safety 3 trained or willing to be trained
  • High level of competence using PC based applications; desktop publishing, photo editing / digital imaging software, spreadsheets, including Adobe Acrobat and Microsoft Office
  • Must have worked on site and understand H&S/Technical requirements
  • Must have excellent influencing and rapport building skills
  • Must be able to travel/own transport
  • Must have good written English


L&D Level 3 would be advantageous, as would a good level of learning design understanding so that when appropriate, you can identify certain policies or procedures that can be bought to life in a different way.
