Why join HEINEKEN?

Embedding HEINEKEN Herefordshire as the Global Home of Cider is a challenge we all embrace. Our historic Herefordshire heartland is home to the world's largest Cider production site, our cider mill at Ledbury and more than 10,000 acres of orchards. We also partner with local growers as we use 30% of all apples grown in the UK to make our celebrated cider brands. From Strongbow and Bulmers to Old Mout and Blind Pig, a spirit of innovation inspires our craft - and with a string of new styles and flavours to enjoy including the artisanal Bulmers Orchard Pioneers range, our future is one you'll want to be part of.

What are we looking for?

Reporting into the Shift Manager and working within a team you will be responsible for running high-speed packaging machinery efficiently and effectively. Our packaging teams at Hereford are first rate and these roles will be covering our canning lines which run at 62,000 and 72,000 cans per hour. Safety is our number priority so you will be trained on all our procedures that ensure Health & Safety is in front of mind - then our focus is on Quality, Customer Service and Productivity.

We need motivated self-starters who will be proactive in taking ownership of their area. This means working to high standards - encouraging others to keep those same standards, with an eye for detail to pick up on possibly quality challenges. You will work alongside very capable team members who will help you out initially, along with your shift manager, - and once you're settled you will be expected to help drive continuous improvement within your area through our Total Productive Management programme (TPM), this is similar to LEAN theories.
