As part of FTSE 100’s Associated British Foods, we’re a business with a lot to offer.

We’re performing well in a dynamic and demanding environment, but we’re not stopping there – we have ambitious plans to continue to grow our business. In 2006 we completed the largest investment programme in UK bakery and today we’re using that advantage to grow our portfolio of great products and bakery services.

So, do you want to join a large dynamic business with big plans for the future? Do you want to work in a fast-moving workplace where people are the most important ingredient? If you’re ready for a new challenge, you’re at the right place!

Whichever role at whichever of our sites, you’ll soon feel part of our team and will have the chance to make a difference to the success of this large, competitive, ever-changing business. You’ll work with great people and fantastic products. And as our business develops and succeeds through performance improvement, you’ll grow and develop too.

Join us and you won’t just go through the motions. We encourage accountability and autonomy. Ideas are listened to and your contribution will be valued, rewarded and recognised.

Health, Safety & Wellbeing

Our employees’ safety, health and wellbeing is important to us – we want everyone to go home after a day’s work in the same state as they arrived – our positive health and safety culture is one where people work together to make safety part of everything we do – we promote and support health and wellbeing so that people have the physical and mental capability to satisfy their own working needs as well as making their personal contribution to the success of the business.

Our Values

We’re looking for people who live our values, love a challenge and will go the extra mile to make things happen.

Our central value is to ‘be the best you can be’ and it’s underpinned by four behaviours: aim high, everybody matters, I do what I say, and work together.

Our inclusion and diversity strategy is increasingly central to decision-making across the bakeries. Our vision is based around belonging: we want everyone to feel free to bring their whole self to work and to feel proud that our workplace reflects the communities we live in.

Grocery Graduate Scheme

We also recruit as part of the Associated British Foods Grocery Graduate Scheme. The scheme is designed to give you relevant experience and the stretch to become one of our future leaders. Our businesses are agile and will allow you the autonomy to shape your time on the programme. You’ll receive plenty of support along the way, but you will be required to drive your own career.

We have five different graduate programmes available across Supply Chain and Operations, Customer Development, Engineering, Marketing and Technical. Find out more at www.abf-grocery-grads.com


Our apprentices are part of the wider ABF grocery scheme which is open to both new and existing colleagues. Our apprentices get access to registered training providers who help them focus on getting professional qualifications in a range of areas, including engineering, manufacturing, digital and technical. Apprentices are able to learn on the job, getting hands-on experience in role at the same times as working towards a recognised qualification.
