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

Faccenda is a leading UK food company, supplying quality fresh and convenience food solutions to an impressive range of customers within the retail and food service sectors.

We are a fully-integrated business controlling the whole product supply chain, from farms, hatcheries and mills, to factories, warehouses and distribution operations, employing over 3,000 people at sites across England and Wales.

We are committed to our staff and suppliers, delivering success for both our people and our customers.

The Role

We are looking for graduates who are committed to becoming future business leaders. The focus is on building your career rather than climbing a predefined ladder.

Over three years you can expect to spend time working on several different assignments in a broad range of business activities, each offering real responsibility from day one.

We are currently looking to recruit a mechanical engineer into the engineering function at our site in Brackley. In a fast moving organisation such as ours, engineering sits at the heart of business. The primary objective is to maintain an effective and efficient production process in order to provide quality fresh and convenient products for dispatch to our customers.

Sitting within our engineering function, you will be looking at our operations from a continuous improvement perspective to ensure that our site is running as effectively as it possibly can. You will be responsible for tasks such as the management of any planned maintenance, identifying and implementing continuous improvement projects and establishing root causes of issues and putting into place appropriate solutions.

What are we looking for?

We look for people who value teamwork, responsibility and excellence. Someone who is willing to undertake a variety of tasks whilst maintaining the highest standard in a fast moving, high pressure, time critical environment.

To be part of our workforce you will need to be self-motivated and conscientious, with an attention to detail. Individuals would be expected to obtain multi-skills through our on the job training and show a flexible work ethic.

The ideal applicant for this role will come from a Mechanical or Electrical Engineering degree background, achieving a minimum of a 2.2 (or equivalent). Due to the nature of the role we’re looking for someone who has a logical and structured way to problem solving but also the ability to communicate with people easily and with confidence.

The Programme

From your first day as a graduate we will provide you with continuous training and support to assist you in your personal career development. You will be exposed to a variety of different commercial functions within Faccenda so you can appreciate how the company operates.

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

  • A structured induction programme (Starting on Day 1)
  • Graduate mentoring programme
  • Cross-functional business development opportunity
  • Formal training linked to your Personal Development Plan

And this is just in the first year!

In the second year, the learning and development opportunities available to you will become more tailored and focused on your functional discipline. So, whether your aim is to become a Production Manager or the next Supply Chain Director, your development at Faccenda will be second to none.

We also provide opportunities to study Post Graduate Qualifications where appropriate for your development.

If you are excited about the opportunities on offer and can relate to the success factors which will drive achievement in our business, then apply today.

Discovery Graduates is the retained Management Consultancy.

All applications will be assessed by Discovery Graduates. We believe that every graduate is capable of getting a good graduate job given the right support, advice and training and we only work with companies who recognise the value that the right graduate can bring to their business.
