Mowi Feed is the feed manufacturing division within Mowi, the Global leader in salmon farming, processing and marketing. Having entered production in June 2014, Mowi Feed has quickly established itself as a competitive supplier of salmon feed playing a key role in supporting Mowi Farming in its delivery of high quality, nutritious, safe and sustainable salmon.

Currently operating from its factories in Kyleakin, Isle of Skye in Scotland and in Valsneset in the Trøndelag Region of Norway, Mowi Feed has an annual production volume in the order of 500,000 tonnes per year. We manufacture a broad portfolio of conventional and organic feeds for both fresh and seawater phases of salmon growth in Scotland, Ireland, the Faroe Islands, Iceland and Norway.

Mowi Feed is seeking a highly motivated person to be a part of our logistics team within our Operations Department. The role covers a range of operational tasks: from intake/receipt of all dry and liquid raw materials (in both bulk and bag form) from a range of vessels and vehicles, right through the supply chain to the loading and despatch of finished product bags, with an array of tasks in between. Most tasks are quite physical so a Logistics Technician requires a good level of fitness and flexibility.

The feed plant runs 24/7, 365 days of the year and the successful candidate will be required to participate in a shift rota.

  • Creating, maintaining and developing a safe working environment for all, continuously improving routines and safe systems of work;
  • Working together with vessels and vehicles to ensure safe operations around the site and pier through clear communication;
  • Ensuring adherence to Company Health, Safety and Environment policies and procedures;
  • Ensuring work areas are maintained to a high standard;
  • Supporting other operational departments when required.

The above will involve a combination of forklift driving and operating different machinery, some heavy and some at heights.

Qualifications/Skills

  • Good communication skills which requires fluency in English, both written and spoken
  • Well-developed IT skills.
  • Experience working to health and safety guidelines;
  • Being confident working with technology and machinery, some at heights;
  • Ability to work independently and as part of a team;

  • Ability to demonstrate the capacity to successfully work shift routines, as well as having an openness to working rotating shift patterns;
  • Experience working in a busy warehouse, and with both vessels and trucks, would be an advantage;
  • Holding a driving licence and machinery tickets is also preferred.  Training is provided on the necessary machinery.

Mowi Feed offers:

  • A starting salary of £25,651 during the probation period, and an increase to £31,350 thereafter
