Tulip seeks next generation of butchers

One of the UK’s leading food companies, Tulip, is searching for the next generation of butchers, engineers and technical specialists to join what it claims to be its ‘industry-leading’ apprenticeship programme. 

Thirty butchers, nine engineers and nine technical apprentices are being sought to join the company at various locations across the country.

“We have a number of fantastic apprenticeship opportunities in butchery, engineering and technical disciplines available at locations across our UK operation. All candidates will be assessed throughout their apprenticeship to ensure that they learn the knowledge and relevant skills in their chosen function,” commented Tulip’s group human resources director Kirsty Wilkins.

Recruitment has already commenced and is expected to last until early April. The company is keen to hear from young people looking for real career and development opportunities.

“Candidates successfully completing the training programme will gain relevant formal qualifications and Tulip will provide them with support at every stage of their apprenticeship to assist them in building a career in the food industry,” added Wilkins.

“Anyone interested in finding out more about the various opportunities available in their locality should, in the first instance, visit the National Apprenticeship Service’s website www.apprenticeships.gov.uk or contact their local Jobcentre Plus.”

Successful applicants will be paid over the duration of their training as well as being offered a range of permanent, full-time employment opportunities for candidates who successfully complete the apprenticeship programme.
