A day in the life of a Natures Way Foods Assistant Finance Business Partner

We make delicious salad meals, coleslaw, potato salad, bagged salads and leafy salad bowls. Our products are stocked by leading Retail supermarkets & restaurant chains and consumed by millions of customers in the UK, so you may well have eaten something made by us!

This role requires the ability to be able to influence people so building these relationships is key.

You will also support product costings with our commercial sales team. To put it very simply - when we make a new salad for example, everything must be costed and considered from the pack size and shape, ingredients quantity and cost, transport costs, labour, yield of product, line operations to whether it has a fork! This is just a brief snapshot!
