Bakery operative

A fresh challenge every day

With 12 bakeries across the country, these teams make up an extremely important part of our family.They're the ones who need to check our raw materials, oversee the baking process from mixing and proving to baking, slicing and packing; they also ensure the depots receive the best quality products.

    What's your role?

    My job title is Bakery Operative, working in production at our Bristol site. I've been with the company just over 12 months now. The role involves operating sections of production line machinery, combined with ongoing quality assurance.

    Why did you join?

    I hadn't worked in the food industry before this job. When I saw the post advertised I looked into both Warburtons as an employer and the role itself. I was slightly daunted at the prospect of learning new skills, but I received the necessary training and support to give me the confidence I needed. I haven't looked back since!

    What's your biggest achievement so far?

    Learning all about the different aspects of packaging, plus of course, achieving my TG3. This is the highest possible grade for a production line operative. It was a real thrill to receive the qualification.

    Would you recommend Warburtons?

    Quite simply, yes! It's a family business with family values. They offer first class working conditions, great prospects and company benefits.

    What did you do before?

    I worked as a butcher in an abattoir, and before that I was a greyhound stadium hare operator.

    What's your biggest achievement to date?

    Being part of a team that has won The Derek Warburton Trophy (DWT) for internal product quality.

    What do you like most about Warburtons?
