Careers

Hear from our HR Director Miranda Spencer

“Cranswick is a dynamic, fast-paced environment that will bring out the best in you – if you’re ready to embrace responsibility and step up to any challenge then this is somewhere you will want to be. We now employ around 11,000 people across our 18 sites, and we are constantly on the look out for bright, new talent to join our Cranswick family. 

Whether you have experience in the meat industry or not, we will welcome new individuals into our business, to help shape the future of Cranswick for generations to come”.

Our people are at the heart of our business. From the farm to the factory to the retail shelf, we are all dedicated to one purpose; feeding the nation with authentically made, sustainably produced food, created with passion.

We were founded on expertise but, more than anything, we are a company of entrepreneurs. Cranswick stands for determination and ambition, seeking out the next opportunity, encouraging a culture that allows great, commercially focused ideas to flourish.

Named one of Britain’s Most Admired Companies in 2018, we endeavour to be a destination employer. Each of our sites are unique, yet our guiding principles of Quality, Value, Innovation and People shine through.

We have well invested, industry leading facilities and an ambitious growth plan which has enabled us to create a workplace with opportunities where people can progress and develop their careers. Whether that be in our Technical, Production, Operations, NPD, Agri, Sales and Marketing or Commercial teams; the opportunity is there for you. 

Working at Cranswick means you’ll be part of one of the largest food producers in the UK, but it also means you’ll be working for one of the most responsible. We have an industry leading sustainability strategy, Second Nature, that constantly challenges us to do the right thing. Ultimately to put more back into the environment than we take out. Without the dedication of our people we would not be able to deliver these commitments. It continues to be an incredible journey that we are very proud of.

We are always looking for ambitious people to join our team. Current vacancies can be found here.
