We are recruiting for 15 roles in our production and packing departments.
Eight roles are for order pickers, four in production, and three in the packing department. All roles are part of a shift rota and can be worked on a part-time or full-time basis, and can be temporary or permanent. Experience within food manufacturing isn’t essential as full training will be provided.
Tasneem Alonzo, our joint MD, says: “We’re very lucky to have some very loyal employees who have been with us for years and this recruitment drive will support our whole team, and in turn our customers. We know working in a spice warehouse is not easy due to the health and safety, allergen awareness, and product knowledge required, but we’d welcome anyone willing to learn with a can-do attitude and full training will be provided.
“Since the country opened up, and with so many people staying in the UK for holidays, there has been a surge in demand for our products so we’re keen to recruit now so we’re ready for the Christmas rush.
“This is the first time we have struggled to fill positions – we usually have plenty of applications and have to turn people away. We know that a lot of our ex-employees and potential workers have returned back to their own countries due to Brexit complications and the pandemic, but we’d love to hear from anyone in the Greater Manchester region who is looking for work with a great team, for a growing business.”
All vacancies are open to anyone aged 18 or over who can legally work in England.
We import, blend and pack all sorts of natural dried herbs and spices from around the world – from paprika and parsley, to chillies and cardamom. We also supply blends such as curry powders, harissa, Tex-Mex, BBQ, and seasonings for sausages and burgers, as well as a range for plant based, vegan and vegetarian foods.
We supply ingredients in organic and conventional format in bulk, under our Lähde brand, to the food manufacturing industry and to the catering and hospitality sectors.
Our herbs and spices go into prepared foods, soups and sauces, sweet and savoury baked items, ready meals, snacks, marinades, and in international blends and seasonings.
