Food Manufacturer creating 170 Jobs

Two Sisters Food Group needs new recruits at its manufacturing sites in Derby and Heanor.

A food manufacturing giant is looking to recruit an extra 170 jobs across its two Derbyshire factories as it looks to ramp up production ahead of the festive season.
JobCentre Plus in Derby has said it is working with Two Sisters Food Group to fill the roles at the firm’s ready meals factory in Derby and at Christmas pudding manufacturer Matthew Walker, which has its factory in Heanor.

Two Sisters took over the former S&A Foods factory last year. S&A went into administration at the end of 2015 after it lost a key contract with Asda. It resulted in the loss of 300 jobs. But Two Sisters stepped in and took over the factory and re-opened the site in April 2016, with many of the jobs going to former S&A Foods staff.

Today, the factory, which makes barbecue, ready-to-cook and ready-to-eat poultry products, employs 500 people.

Now, according to JobCentre Plus, the firm is looking to add to that number over the coming months - with positions available including team leaders, production and dispatch staff.
At the same time, Two Sisters is also looking to add 100 extra staff to its Matthew Walker factory at Heanor Gate.
