WHAT COMPANY YOU WILL BE WORKING FOR

Would you like to work for a manufacturer of some of the nation’s best-known biscuit brands, who has doubled its turnover between 2018 to 2021? Are you looking to join a business who is well and truly on the rise? (pun intended) Well, look no further.

Due to strong growth, Northumbrian Fine Foods (NFF) has partnered with Westray Recruitment Group to fill a number of new roles within its factory based in Gateshead.

NFF is part of Biscuit International (BI), one of Europe’s leading players in the private label sweet biscuit market. NFF’s growth has been driven by the company’s strong performance within the gluten free category, which is a result of an increased number of ‘healthy lifestyle shoppers’ choosing free form products.

We are looking to recruit various people to work as Biscuit Packers The business is an inclusive organisation and they would encourage anyone willing to work hard and who wants to be part of a growing organisation to apply today and join them on their journey.

The business is committed to investing in their Gateshead manufacturing facilities and when joining NFF, you will gain access to a best in class training programme and your journey with the business will have limitless potential. Not only that, there is an amazing shift pattern, that provides a great work life balance and plenty of time off! (see below)

WHAT WILL YOU BE DOING IN YOUR ROLE?

  • Packing biscuits on a production line
  • Working to achieve production targets
  • Abiding by Food Hygiene standards

WHAT EXPERIENCE AND SKILLS ARE REQUIRED FOR THIS POSITION?

The right attitude and approach to work is really more important than skill set for this role, as full training will be given. However, you must be able to demonstrate the following:

  • Right to work in United Kingdom
  • Physically fit
  • Good verbal and written English communication
  • Good hand to eye co-ordination

If you’ve worked in a food manufacturing environment previously this would be beneficial, but it’s by no means essential.

WHAT ARE THE FINER DETAILS OF YOUR ROLE?

This role will initially commence on a 3-shift system (days 6am-2pm, backs 2pm-10pm and night shift 10pm-6am).

However, the role over the coming weeks will transition to a continental shift pattern 6am-6pm & 6pm-6am. Once working the continental shift pattern, you will be required to work a total of 36 hours per week, comprising of 3 x 12-hour shifts.

You will work Monday, Tuesday & Wednesday one week and then the following week you will work Thursday, Friday & Saturday. You will not work on a Sunday.

This role provides an incredible work life balance as you will have up to 7 days rest between rotations every three weeks.

WHAT SALARY PACKAGE YOU WILL BE RECEIVING

Whilst working the 3-shift pattern over 22-year olds will be paid £8.91 per hour and 22 years and under will be paid £8.36 per hour.

Once transferred to the continental shift pattern, the position pays £9 per hour, however, you will be paid for 40 hours whilst only working 36 hours.

There is free and secure parking
