With over 50 people at our Bedford site and in excess of 350 across the group, we are a relatively large business; however, we pride ourselves on still being friendly and approachable with the majority of staff knowing each other on a personal basis. We feel strongly that we can offer opportunities to those who want them without becoming impersonal - and here's why:
Many of our staff enjoy flexible working arrangements allowing them to vary their start and finish times, and take advantage of an earlier finish on some Fridays. In addition to market-aligned levels of pay, annual leave and maternity/paternity allowances, we also offer:
We provide comprehensive on the job training and personal development programmes. We also offer staff the opportunity and funding for work-related study and qualifications.
We have been running Graduate and Apprentice schemes for many years, and some of our most valued and senior employees joined us via such schemes.
We are located on the outskirts of Bedford in Kempston. If you live in Bedford it is a maximum 10 minute drive, 20 minute cycle ride, or 30 minute walk. We are only 5 minutes away from Interchange Retail Park which is home to a number of shops and fast food outlets. Our proximity to the M1, A1(M) etc. mean the following towns are all within 40 minutes by car, Milton Keynes, Luton, Dunstable, Northampton, St Neots, etc. Larger towns/cities, such as Cambridge, Stevenage and Huntingdon, are an hour or less away.
Our production and logistics areas are clean and quiet, most of the manual work is not physically demanding and is suitable for people of all ages and genders. Whilst we do demand high standards of quality and output the atmosphere is generally relaxed.
The offices across all three sites are modern open-plan and well equipped with the latest IT and office technology. Depending on the role, staff may also get the opportunity to work occasionally at our site in the Czech Republic, if they wish.
