Marshfield Farm Ice Cream have been creating multi award-winning ice cream flavours with organic milk from our own herd of cows since 1988. We are proud to supply over 6000 independent customers across the UK as well as export.
This is an exciting opportunity to be involved in the production of our ice cream. If you are looking to join a happy and committed team for a long-term job, we would love to meet you. Full training will be provided so no previous food experience is needed. We are looking for someone with a positive and can-do attitude, with a track record of physical work and getting the job done.
This is the first time this role has become available in eight years! You will be reporting to the Production Supervisor who also works in the factory full time and is always available to help out and explain things.
This is a hands-on, operational job. It is a very flexible role covering different jobs.
Your daily tasks will include:
- Working as a part of a small, friendly production team of maximum 8
- Washing and starting up your own production line
- Packing and filling ice cream tubs with your dedicated team of 3 operatives
- Keeping the production line up to a very high standard – hygiene, cleanliness, running efficiency
- Ensuring hourly and daily production quality checks are correctly carried out
Who we are looking for
- This is a practical, physical job! You need to be fit and strong enough to lift 25kg drums or bags and be on your feet all day
- You have a minimum of 3 years working in a practical, physical, hands-on role . But previous experience in food production itself is not necessary as full training will be given.
- A flexible attitude to the job! Sometimes we will need you to work in different places in the factory and sometimes we will need you stay on to help the team to finish up.
- Good literacy and numeracy – there are ingredients to weigh out and some daily paperwork to complete. We run a simple cloud-based stock control system which needs to be updated daily
