You will need to be a confident user of Microsoft Excel and IT in general, an excellent and confident communicator, have excellent time management and prioritisation skills.  An interest in food is important, but previous professional experience for a food manufacturer is not essential.

Inclusion & diversity at Simply Lunch
We are committed to improving the way we work across all areas of the business, including Sustainability, Diversity and Inclusion.

Like many other organisations, we are considering with renewed focus what Diversity means to us. What may have been acceptable a short time ago is not sufficient for the future, so we are dedicating our time and focus to creating a workplace where everyone feels valued and respected, especially those who are often excluded or underrepresented.

If you feel that you do not see yourself represented in this particular professional area because of any part of your identity that makes you different, we would especially like to hear from you.


We’re a family-run sandwich supplier, Food to Go and lunch platter company in South London with over 30 years experience creating and delivering the most delicious sandwiches around. It all started in 1979 with our dad making food for hungry travellers on the A22.

Lots has changed since then but one thing remains the same — we seek out the best, most delicious produce from around the country so that our sandwiches are as mouth-watering as they should be.

Terry handed over the reins to his three sons, Sam, Jack and William and we’ve been going from strength to strength ever since. All our food is handmade at our kitchens in South London with the same care, love and admiration that we’ve shown since day one. Although we’re obsessed with sandwiches, we also make everything else that you’d need for lunch; from focaccias, baguettes, wraps and whole lunch platters, to salads, fruit and snacking pots.
