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.
What’s 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.
You’ll be joining the Production department and will rotate around the business and different sites to gain maximum exposure to the business. As such, being able to relocate is critical for this graduate scheme.

The primary objective in Production is to maintain an effective and efficient process in order to provide quality fresh and convenient products for timely dispatch to our customers.

Initially, you will work closely with the Production Manager to keep track of production information and rework plans where necessary. On a typical day, you will be involved in:
  • Updating forecasts and plans and communicating them articulately 
  • Managing the change in production based on breakdowns or delayed deliveries
  • Getting new plans re-worked and implemented

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 focusing on the production processes, quality control, health and safety and team management.

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
  • Formal training linked to your Personal Development Plan
  • Relocation support if required
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.
The Individual
You will have achieved a minimum of a 2.2 in any discipline and you’ll have a natural flair for leadership. We are looking for graduates who are:

  • Team players
  • Adaptable to varied situations
  • Excellent communicators
  • Comfortable getting hands-on
  • Driven to achieve results and find solutions
  • Numerically strong
  • Highly computer literate
  • Flexible to relocate

Please apply now for immediate consideration. The Assessment Process will take place in October 2017, with the role starting in or before November 2017.
Discovery Graduates are the retained managing consultants.  All applications will be processed through Discovery.  We regret 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.
