Job Description

The Trainee Manager role at Greencore offers the successful candidate a place on our Degree Apprenticeship programme in partnership with Nottingham Trent University. This programme offers you a unique opportunity to work in a fast growing and dynamic organisation whilst studying at the same time!

Successful candidates will work their way through the programme over the 4 years going from entry-level roles, through supervisory roles, into managerial leadership roles by the end of the 4 years (subject to measured and monitored development and performance). Successful candidates who prove themselves to be high potential may, we hope, go even further in the organisation.

Additional Information

Successful candidates will attend Nottingham Trent University during weekdays for programme delivery (an average of 2 days per month, but this may aggregate higher or lower over the course of the programme). There will also be workplace meetings with your manager and programme leader. The first 3 years of the programme they will work towards the bachelor’s degree, then the fourth year will focus on achieving their Chartered Manager award (CMgrM CMI).

We offer three different programmes in either Operations, Commerical or Technical Functions and you'll be asked about your preference during the application process. 

Operations candidates will spend their first 6 months (approx.) working and shadowing activity across a range of factory tasks in order to understand the breadth of the operation. They will then transition to a Front Line Leader role which has responsibility for a production line; they will work to production KPIs, be responsible for their teams’ wellbeing, and escalate issues outside their role responsibilities.  

Commercial candidates will gain some exposure to our factory environment and will rotate through Marketing, Sales and Product Development roles, leading through to Category / Business Account Manager or Product Development Manager roles.

Technical candidates will work across a range of site and office based roles across Quality Assurance, Raw Materials or Process Technologists and Specifications Analysts, leading through to Quality Assurance Supervisor and Manager roles.
