Why work at Bakkavor?

There’s something great about Bakkavor. Although our name isn’t well known, there’s a real sense of pride that comes from creating delicious fresh prepared food.

In the UK, we create products, including meals, soups, dips, salads and pizzas for well-known retailers like Tesco, M&S, Sainsbury’s and Waitrose. And in the USA and China, we make products for brands such as Starbucks, Yum! and Pret. It’s highly likely you’ve tasted many of our delicious products already and we’re on a journey to ensure that many others do too.

We’re building our brand and creating a great company culture. Our success so far is built around a strong sense of purpose and clear values with every one of our sites supporting our vision for Bakkavor.

These company values let you know what’s important to us, what we expect from you and what you can expect from working with other people at Bakkavor.

This is a really fantastic time to be joining us.

Learning & Development (L&D)

We want to be an industry-leading centre of excellence for learning and development.
Our programme offers all kinds of support; from what you can expect on your first day to senior management leadership development.

Although we’re here to help people perform their roles competently and safely, we also want to encourage a culture of continuous learning. It’s important you feel engaged and motivated in your career with us.

L&D is structured in a way that allows us to combine the very best of group-wide principles with locally focused needs. While we’ve created a range of initiatives and programmes, there are also L&D professionals across all our sites delivering ‘on the job’ learning and bespoke development.

L&D has three key areas:

  • Core Learning: On-boarding, compliance, health & safety and technical
  • Personal & Professional Development
  • Leadership & Management Development

We continuously review our offer and encourage our people to reach out and engage with L&D to make the most of these learning opportunities. We’re also passionate about helping people to be the very best that they can be and to make the most of their skills, knowledge and potential.
