EXPIRY NOTICE: This job has now expired and will not be accepting any more applications.

Faccenda are a leading food company supplying quality fresh and convenience food solutions to an impressive range of customers within the retail and food service sectors.  We are looking for an impressive and ambitious graduate to join our Graduate Scheme and become one of our future business leaders.

What sets us apart is our heritage, strong values, commitment to each other and a passion to provide trusted food, every day, as we have done over more than five decades. We get people involved, work as a team and deliver for our customers. Our differentiator is that together, our people make the kind of business that our customers and suppliers want to work with and very much enjoy doing so.

It is not what we do but how we do it that makes the difference.

Main Purpose of the Role:

Over three years you will spend time working on several different assignments, across a broad range of departments, each offering real responsibility from day one. Initially you’ll be joining the Technical Department in a Quality Manager role before rotating around the business, at different sites, to gain maximum exposure. Your first 12 months could involve:

  • Managing a team of QA’s
  • Ensuring quality management systems are being implemented
  • Liaising with production management to meet customer specifications 
  • Leading internal audits and preparing the business for external audits
  • Responding to customer and supplier queries

We control our whole supply chain from our local British farms, through advanced manufacturing plants to the final product on the shelf. This ensures that customers receive a safe, secure product and that delivery comes via an excellent service from a transparent and integrated supply chain. You’ll play an important part in this process by working on varied projects such as quality control, production processes, health and safety and team management.

The Individual:

Academically, we are looking for CCC (or higher) at A-level and a 2:2 degree (or higher) from a technical-related background such as Chemistry, Bio-Chemistry, Food Science, Food Nutrition and Biology. Other degree types may also be considered. You will have strong communication skills both verbal and written. 

You will also have;

  • A strong aptitude for learning
  • An organised approach
  • Interest in the industry (advantageous)
  • A good eye for detail
  • Accuracy in your work
  • The ability to follow and/or implement processes
  • Flexible to relocate

Training & Development:

Investment in people development is a core principle in our culture, ensuring you can learn, grow and have a rewarding career with us. We are a business where our people make the difference every day.

As well as bespoke, on-the-job development, you will also be offered the following learning and development opportunities:

  • A structured Induction Programme (Starting on day one)
  • Graduate Mentoring Programme
  • Cross-functional business development opportunity
  • Safety training
  • Formal training linked to your Personal Development Plan

And this is just in your first year!

In the second year, the learning and development opportunities available to you will become more tailored and focused on your functional discipline. We also provide opportunities to study Post-Graduate Qualifications where appropriate for your development.

Salary and Benefits:

At Faccenda, we know how hard our graduates work and what a substantial contribution they make to our business and because of this, we offer the people who join us a very attractive package.

This includes;

  • £25,000 starting salary
  • Performance based reviews
  • 22 days holiday plus Bank Holidays (raising to 25 days over duration of employment)
  • Pension Scheme
  • Career progression

Please apply now for immediate consideration. The Assessment Process will take place in December 2017 and January 2018, with the role starting in February/March 2018.

Discovery are the retained managing consultants. All applications will be processed through Discovery. We regret that due to the high volume of applications we receive, only those successful on application will be contacted for interviews. In the event that you are unsuccessful for this opportunity, we may still be able to help you and we will retain your application and consider you for other opportunities.
