We know about food!

Tulip Ltd is the UK’s leading food solutions business, supplying all major food retailers, wholesalers and foodservice companies with a wide range of quality products. We provide consumers with a comprehensive range of products in four key mega-categories - fresh meat & sausage, bacon & gammon, cooked meat, and convenience & snacking. Our farm-to-fork operation is unique in the industry, while our strategic framework puts customers, product, efficiency and people at the heart of everything we do, all with a view to growing responsibly. As part of the Danish Crown Group, the largest pork provider in Europe and the biggest exporter of pork in the world, Tulip Ltd is well-placed to deliver its ambitious plans for sustainable growth. If you have an appetite for more, this could be the role for you.

We are currently seeking to recruit a production line manager to be based at Tipton which is one of our largest and most impressive fresh pork and butchery sites.

This exciting role is to primarily assist the shift manager to facilitate the smooth and efficient running of the Tipton production site and to meet the demands of the business thus achieving production targets and to continually strive to reduce costs whilst ensuring production downtime is kept to a minimum. Reporting to the shift manager, you will be responsible for 5-7 supervisors and the teams of production operatives.

You will have proven people management skills, the ability to communicate effectively and have a good quality awareness. You will have the ability to learn and be trained in required skills, have health and safety, and  food safety awareness. In addition you will require basic literacy and numeracy and be able to work in a chilled environment. Previous production line experience in a food related environment would be an advantage

As an international organisation, we pride ourselves on creating high quality food, exceed many recognised industry standards, we care about our people and offer an excellent package. If you are as serious about food as we are and ready to help us make a difference, we would like to hear from you.
