Who Are We?
At Burton’s Biscuits we are the home of Jammie Dodgers, Maryland Cookies and Wagon Wheels to name just a few! We are incredibly lucky to work in the world of making delicious biscuits!
Burton’s Biscuits are owned by a Private Equity Owned business Ontario Teachers' Pension Plan (OTPP or Teachers for short) and form part of their $191.1 B Net Assets portfolio. Working in partnership with Teachers, has allowed Burtons Biscuits to become a forward thinking and progressive company.
Our Vision is to have a shared Pride and Passion for baking sensational biscuits and snacks that delight our consumers, shoppers and our customers. We employ circa 1,800 people around the UK, with the majority of our workforce being based at our three main Bakery facilities in Llantarnam, Edinburgh and Blackpool. Our head office is based in St. Albans, with a subsidiary office located in Blackpool and smaller but equally important sites based in Dorset, Livingston & the Isle of Arran.
Along with having amazing brands, we have secured long term agreements to allow us to manufacture a number of sweet & savoury snacks across Mars Biscuit, Cathedral City & Marmite branded products. We are also forming key strategic partnerships within the Retailer Private Label sector.
In order to ensure we can continue to make fantastic biscuits, and to help us on this amazing journey, we are proud to announce that in 2019 we completed the acquisition of a premium sweet and savoury biscuit manufacturer Thomas Fudge’s, also in 2019 we acquired Scottish bakers Paterson Arran. This will increase our baking capabilities across a number of new sweet and savoury categories.
What are we all about?
Here at Burton’s Biscuit we pride ourselves on being an employer of choice. Our goal is to support our team in achieving their career goals. We do this by providing a working environment that offers opportunity, support, scope and pace of change. Our culture is the foundation of our business. We are fast paced, agile and fun.
We don’t want to bore you with just a Job description - we want to tell you what it’s really like to work for us?
So let’s start with ….…
Why work as part of our Quality & Food Safety Department?
As with all of our sites, Edinburgh feels like a family, you’ll get to work with talented people across a range of functions, such as our Production Teams, SHE, Supply Chain to name a few.
Most of all, ‘Quality’ is at the heart of everything we do, which means you’ll have a real opportunity to continue to drive and implement best practices. Everybody knows the saying ‘a hygienic site is a happy site’.
What does your typical day look like?
No two days are ever the same within a Burtons Biscuits Bakery, which is one of the reasons it’s such an exciting place to work. One minute you might be working with our 3rd party on-site cleaning provider, the next may see you launching new improvements to drive best practices.
Finally you will be ensuring that the site not only meets but exceeds our customers & industry standard KPI’s on a daily basis.
What are the key ingredients needed for the role?
This role would be great for an experienced individual within Quality or Hygiene, leadership experience is ideal but isn’t essential. What is key though is having experience in Food Safety (Level 3), if you also have NEBOSH / IOSH it would be a bonus.
Final part of the mix.
To be successful in this role at Burton’s you’ll need experience working with or for the major supermarkets, with an understanding of BRC audits, meaning you will need to have experience within Food & Beverage manufacturing.
What do we offer in return?
We offer a competitive salary package, company pension, 25 days holiday and 8 bank holidays & a subsidised canteen.
