The ideal candidates need to be committed, reliable and able to work well as part of a team. Previous experience in food handling is not essential, as full training will be provided.

We have a range of positions available in the following Production Areas:

Slicing Machines: involves the operation of 2 slicing machines; one for cutting strips of salmon along the length of the fillet and a second machine for slicing a diagonal cut.

Slicing Hall: consists of a large conveyor system with separate stations; each station has its own table and scale. All of our salmon packs are produced at these stations, before being placed onto a roller track and then moved into our Vacuum Packing section.

Vacuum Packing: all of our products are bagged, vacuum packed and then bar-coded in this section before being moved through to our Despatch area.

YARD - The Yard Team operate a wide variety of equipment within the Yard areas, including counterbalance forklift trucks to load and unload delivery lorries, as well as assisting with the traffic flow through the Goods In/Out areas, plus carrying out a range of checks and cleaning duties.
