It’s likely that you haven’t heard of us, but it is also likely that you’ve eaten and enjoyed one of our products! Growing from a small family business that produced eggs for local stores, we have grown to become the leading supplier of fresh eggs to the major retailers. Each week we individually grade, pack and deliver over 72 million eggs for our customers. Some of our well known egg brands include: The Happy Egg Co. and Big & Fresh. But we don’t just stop at eggs! In 2010 we acquired two premium dessert based business – Greenwich based Didier’s Patisserie and Gü Puds.

This is an exciting time for us here at Noble Foods and we are looking to grow and bring in new talent into different areas of the business such as Operations, Finance and I.T.

We are looking for individuals to come in and learn all about our business from top to bottom by rotating around our different sites. Due to the nature of what we do, this is a very fast paced business and it is really important that our new recruits understand this. To begin with you will spend time in areas such as Agriculture, Operations and Supply Chain. Whilst completing these placements you will work on various projects to really help you understand the different areas well.

After your rotations you will then move into our I.T department based out of our Head Office in Tring. You will need to be flexible to travel as certain projects may take you out around the UK to our various sites. Sitting within our I.T team will mean that you will help to support, maintain and develop systems for the entire group.

This will be a varied role that will cover many elements, from more technical work through to project based work. Although this role sits within the I.T department, the ideal candidate for this role will need to be an all-rounder rather than being specialise in a particular area of I.T. The ideal applicant for this role will from an I.T related degree background with a minimum of 2.2 (or equivalent). You must hold a full EU Driving licence.

The successful applicant will need to demonstrate the following traits:

  • A structured, methodical and organised style
  • The ability to think on your feet and think outside of the box
  • Flexibility in your approach and style – we are a very dynamic and fast paced business!
  • A strong communicator – you’ll be working closely with people from different departments so it is very important that you are able to articulate solutions in a way that those from non I.T backgrounds will understand.

If you feel that this is the right role for you, then go ahead and apply now!
