What will the apprentice be doing?

This full time role will consist of numerous 6-month rotations around the Cranswick business, working within the Technical departments covering a range of Product areas from Fresh Food Production to Cooked Ready to Eat Food products, giving you a broad range of skills to prepare you for a supervisory/management role in Quality Management at the end of your Degree Apprenticeship.

The six-month rotations will consist of business-critical project work depending on the site and product, shadowing the Quality and Technical teams within their day to day roles, networking with other apprentices and teams across the Cranswick business and finally working through their Food Industry Technical Professional degree with Sheffield Hallam University, of which 6 hours per week on average will be allocated study time, to be completed within working hours.

What training will the apprentice take and what qualification will the apprentice get at the end?
  • You will be required to attend Sheffield Hallam University on a series of 4-day study blocks.
  • The degree award is BSc (Hons) Professional Practice in Food Technology.

What is the expected career progression after this apprenticeship?
