View Job Description

Production Operatives

Our client is a family owned business since 1850, which has prospered to become one of the largest family owned confectionary businesses in England. They pride themselves on manufacturing high quality sweets and lollipops to traditional recipes which maintain the “old fashioned” tastes that their customers love.

They are recruiting Production Operatives to learn the skill of making their confectionary and join their 40 hour per week day or evening shift at their factory in Elland, which operate between Monday and Friday.

Your main duties will include:

- Significant amounts of moderate to heavy lifting in a hot environment

- Working to a specific production schedule

Their evening shift has staggered starting times from 3.15 PM and finishing times of up to 1.00 AM, while their day shift has staggered starting times from 6.15 AM. So having your own transport may be essential.

If you intend to use public transport to travel to work, please check the appropriate timetable before applying.

Full training will be given, however experience of working in catering, food production or manufacturing would be an advantage.

In return for your skills and experience, they can offer you a competitive starting rate of pay and regular pay increases as you learn the craft of confectionary making.
