Graduate opportunities are likely to be available at a chocolate plant near Birmingham, as the owning company announce new appointments will be made.

Cadbury announced today (February 17th) that it is to create 100 extra jobs at its factory based in the Midlands village of Bourneville, reports the Birmingham Mail.

Phil Hartshorne, customer services director at Cadbury, told the news provider that the job creation scheme was a ringing endorsement for the Midlands factory.

"The jobs are in customer service and finance administration and it’s another vote of confidence in Bournville following the decision to base the global chocolate centre of excellence here," he said.

Last year, Cadbury was bought by American food conglomerate Kraft for £11.7 billion. Kraft Foods also own companies such as Philadelphia, Maxwell House, and Milka.

There were fears in December that some jobs in the factory may be moved abroad when Kraft announced it would move some Cadbury jobs to Zurich, Switzerland in order to cut the company tax bill.
