Salary:                  £26,300 plus £6,722 Shift Allowance

Why Join HEINEKEN Hereford?
Embedding HEINEKEN Herefordshire as the Global Home of Cider is a challenge we all embrace.  Our historic Herefordshire heartland is home to the world’s largest Cider production site, our cider mill at Ledbury and more than 10,000 acres of orchards.  We also partner with local growers as we use 30% of all apples grown in the UK to make our celebrated cider brands. From our exciting new brand Inches to Strongbow, Bulmers and Old Mout, a spirit of innovation inspires our craft – and with a string of new styles and flavours to enjoy, our future is one you’ll want to be part of.

What’s the role?
Reporting into a Shift Manager you’ll be working within an experienced team where you’ll all be responsible for running the cider production processes efficiently and effectively.  Safety is our number priority so you will be trained on all our procedures that ensure Health & Safety is front of mind – then our focus is on Quality, Customer Service and Productivity. You will also need to deliver on the high standards of cleanliness and reliability on our production plant. With an attention to detail, delivering FTR (First Time Right) on quality and process, you will become a champion of our C.I.L.T’s (cleaning, inspection, lubrication and tightening) tasks.

What are we looking for
We need motivated self-starters who will be proactive in taking ownership of their area. This means working to high standards – encouraging others to keep those same standards, with an eye for detail to pick up on possibly quality challenges. You will work alongside very capable team members who will help you out initially, along with your shift manager, – and once you’re settled you will be expected to help drive continuous improvement within your area through our Total Productive Management programme (TPM), this is similar to LEAN theories.

With solid qualifications in Maths and English, and a good understanding of IT systems, you will be comfortable working in an automated manufacturing environment with a desire to continue your learning – previous brewing or cider production experience would be an advantage but not essential.

What do we offer?
Along with your salary and shift allowance, we offer an award-winning double matched pension (up to 10% from HEINEKEN), a performance bonus, a subsidised on-site gym, subsidised on-site canteen facilities, a case of our delicious products every month (can be accrued) plus a number of other perks included in your package.
