Bakkavor Group, which has plants Bourne, Spalding and Boston is recruiting for 44 apprenticeships.

The freshly-prepared food supplier has a variety of roles in Engineering, Manufacturing, Technical, Process, Procurement, Finance, HR and New Product Development.

The number of such vacancies is six up on last year and applicants who make it through to the programme will experience real responsibility from day one, contributing to key business activities and projects, while also studying towards a relevant, nationally recognised qualification. They will also develop valuable life skills by getting involved in community projects and local charity initiatives.

In addition to its increased apprentice intake, Bakkavor is underlining its commitment to developing the skills of those who want to embark on a career in food manufacturing by recruiting 12 graduates for its two-year UK Graduate Programme. The Group is offering functional programmes in Product Development, Commercial Sales & Management, Human Resources, Finance, Manufacturing and Food Technology.

There are also four undergraduate roles available on its 2021 Industrial Placement Programme in Food Technology and Finance.
