Who are we?
In our Sutton Bridge Salads site we manufacture a wide range of high-quality fresh prepared food. Which means, our production lines are non-stop. So, you’ll be kept busy creating our products, checking product quality and making our food. You’ll enjoy plenty of variety too. Whether you’re creating dips, wraps, soups and sauces or cutting and bagging fruit, cutting and bagging fruit or mixing dressed salads and stir fry, you’ll be right at the heart of our fast-paced, high-pressured environment, helping us to consistently manufacture and deliver to top supermarkets across the UK.

Working in a factory can be more than just a job if you join the right team. You can have a career with Bakkavor and get a taste for success.


The Role:

In this busy and interesting role, you will work closely with our production teams to ensure that the most stringent levels of production and food hygiene are met. You will be hands-on as part of the team, in the deep clean of the production and storage areas. You will use a combination of hand and mechanical/electrical tools (once trained) where you will work to the hygiene cleaning schedule plan, cleaning large-scaled production equipment. By deep clean this will mean, dismantling production equipment in line with the hygiene rota, hand sanitising and using cleaning chemicals and other equipment including pressure cleaners and water jets before reassembling the equipment.


The typical day of a Hygiene Operative involves working in a small team or on your own following a clear cleaning schedule for our production lines, whether that be a full deep clean with chemicals and taking equipment apart or routine regular cleans. The role will require you to record completion of cleaning activities and ensure due diligence.


Our Hygiene Operative position is a platform to build a solid work history from a large multinational company who pride themselves on giving people a chance to reach their potential and progress with us.


You will be provided will appropriate PPE and full training to complete your role.


This is a fast-paced role, but the shifts fly by and you’ll always have something to do.


Job Accountabilities:

  • Work independently and in small teams
  • Work to a cleaning schedule
  • Work with chemicals and other cleaning materials
  • Assist team leader/manager where required


About You:

  • Previous hygiene experience is desirable but not essential
  • Be enthusiastic and conscientious
  • Understand or be willing to learn the principles and application of Food Safety
  • Have a proactive approach to Food Safety
  • Be comfortable wearing personal protective equipment and working in a factory environment with cleaning chemicals.

In return, we’ll give you all the training you need to hit the ground running. We’ll also offer you the encouragement to develop your career and take it as far as you can, or as far as you want to go, within our large multinational company.
