Would you like to work for a family run business who pride themselves on their products, their work ethic and who values their employees?  Would you like to be part of a busy and friendly team?

MHT Foods are a growing family-run business with two food production sites in Market Harborough.  One site is a bakery offering a range of hand-crafted multi-portion loaf cakes, slab cakes, and tray bakes, the second site produces high-quality preserves, chutneys, pickles, and condiments.

We have an immediate start for a team member for our preserves site Monday to Friday (42.5 hrs per week) with some Saturday mornings required during busy production periods.  Initially, the role will be 13:45 – 22:15 (due to COVID) but the permanent hours will be confirmed.

This position would suit someone with excellent attention to detail and the ability to work under their own initiative as well as part of a team.  You will need to be flexible and able to cover other parts of the business.  You need to be honest, reliable, and punctual.

Food production experience would be an advantage although full training will be provided.
