Working with us

We simply love great food and what it can mean for people. It’s our passion. And it’s a passion shared by around 4,000 colleagues who together bring our purpose to life across 15 locations in the UK.  We're looking for those who share that same passion to come and work with us.

You’ll get the chance to work with truly iconic brands that couple unbeatable heritage with bright futures. If you can take decisions to improve things for our brands, our manufacturing sites and our consumers, are happy to take accountability for what you do, and love how food can bring people together, then you’ll fit right in. It’s an exciting time to join us.

Our purpose
Our shared values give us a common framework for decisions and help guide us in the way we do things, and we challenge each other to live them day by day.

At Premier Foods, we:

  • Aim higher
  • Champion fresh ideas
  • Are agile
  • Are united
  • Respect and encourage one another

    Making delicious food is what we love to do, but we’re also passionate about innovation. It’s this innovative spirit that founded our iconic brands over a century ago, and it’s our passion for innovation that enables us to deliver great-tasting, convenient, more sustainable, and healthier products, every day.

Enriching Life Through Food is our purpose. It guides and motivates us, and it's reflected in every element of how we run our business. It means enriching life for our consumers by creating food that enables people to lead sustainable, healthier lifestyles.  It also means enriching life for our colleagues by creating an inclusive culture of entrepreneurship, where people can reach their full potential. Importantly, it is also about making food in a way that respects the world's resources.

Inclusion & Diversity
At Premier Foods we are committed to having an inclusive culture across our whole organisation where everyone is welcome. We aim to ensure all existing or potential colleagues are given equal opportunities and are equally respected, valued and encouraged to bring their true authentic selves to work.   

Everyday inclusion is our approach to ensuring that the things we all do on a daily basis, including the way we behave and interact with each other, support the cultural and behavioural change we aspire to. Our aim is to create an environment; one where we all feel we belong and are empowered to fulfil our potential.   

It is not a one-off action or campaign, but sustained attention each and every day that embraces all individuals and differences.  It requires us all to take personal responsibility for our everyday actions recognising that we all have an impact. 

Our commitments 

  • To create a physiologically safe work environment that promotes inclusion, dignity and respect for all 
  •  To foster a work environment where individual differences and contributions are recognised, valued and where all can thrive 
  • To treat colleagues fairly when it comes to promotion, progression, training and development, with all decisions made in line with business needs as well as individual aptitude and ability, including when and where we select candidates for employment. 
  • To encourage colleagues to raise their concerns if they feel they have been subject to discrimination so we can apply corrective measures.
  • To regularly review our employment practices and procedures so that inclusion & diversity is achieved.   

Monitoring 
Our culture is monitored and reviewed on a regular basis to ensure that Inclusion & Diversity is continually promoted and adhered to within our workplace. 

Learning and Development
Our purpose of Enriching Life Through Food means nurturing a workforce that is proud of its successes, that has a culture of entrepreneurship and helps our colleagues realise their full potential. 

For us, that means creating new and continuous learning opportunities and an environment, where our employees can excel. We do this through formal and informal training that includes a personal development plan tailored to each individual’s career aspirations. We deliver these training opportunities by department to develop people’s functional skills and offer continual learning through workshops, our online learning library and formal training.   

We also offer early career opportunities for Apprentices and Graduates and have been ranked in the Top 100 Apprenticeship Employers since 2017. For graduates, we offer a dynamic and structured development programme , which you can find out more about here
