Samworth are a family company with 14 businesses producing high quality chilled foods for the British market, employing over 8,000 people in well-invested, modern sites in Leicestershire and Cornwall. We only use the best quality ingredients, many of which we source locally, to produce premium chilled foods from pies and sandwiches to cakes and desserts for our retail customers and our own brands: Ginsters, and Dickinson & Morris. Being family-owned gives us the stability to invest and grow for the long term, offering new opportunities for our customers, staff, suppliers and local communities.

This is a fantastic opportunity to join an established and respected chilled food manufacturer where you will be tasked with coordinating the group’s sustainability plan.
