Moy Park has launched a recruitment drive at its Craigavon facility in County Armagh, where it hopes to attract candidates for 150 roles.
The company, which has had its headquarters in Craigavon for 37 of its 74 years, has a variety of roles on offer including technicians, process operatives, electricians, maintenance fitters and team leads.
Brian Johnston, General Manager, Craigavon from Moy Park said: “Moy Park has continued to grow and invest in poultry production. To support this growth we need new talent to join our Craigavon team, where we have 150 positions available across a wide range of roles. We are holding recruitment open days on 15th and 24th November for anyone interested in finding out more about the roles on offer.”
As part of its strategic investment programme, Moy Park invested over £50 million in industry-leading operations in 2016, further enhancing its position as one of the UK’s most advanced food manufacturing companies. This figure included a significant £4 million investment in its facilities at Craigavon, a major investment at its primary processing facility in Dungannon and investment in its Ashbourne factory and hatchery in Derbyshire, England.
The investment in the Craigavon facility enhanced production capabilities in ‘ready to eat’ products allowing Moy Park to satisfy increasing consumer demand for innovative, healthy, convenient and tasty products. According to Moy Park, the investment has helped to position the company as one of the most advanced producers of ‘ready to eat’ products in the UK and Europe.
Moy Park is hopeful that its recruitment open days will demonstrate the wide range of roles available within the company, which is Northern Ireland’s largest private sector employer. During the open day events the Moy Park team will offer support in completing application forms and provide interview skills coaching, as well as conducting interviews and giving those interested a decision on the day.
Craigavon recruitment open days will take place on Wednesday 15th Nov: 3pm – 7pm and Friday 24th Nov: 10am – 2pm in the Technical Centre, 39 Seagoe Industrial Estate, Craigavon, BT63 5QE. For information: T: 028 38352233 Ext 8278
