Supporting talented students of John Hanson Community School

Randall Parker Foods, in partnership with John Hanson Community School Ltd, have set up a Personal Development Bursary Fund.

The purpose of the fund is to provide support to talented students to enable them to fulfill their ambitions/talents in areas including (but not limited to) Sport, Music, Business, Art, Computer Science and Technology.

Financial support is considered for students who have demonstrated commitment and talent in a particular skill or discipline. Students who qualify for support would also be looking to develop their skills to a higher / professional standard – including representation at County, National or even International competitions. During the last year four students have been given financial support from the bursary to assist them to take their skill forward at a higher level.

On Friday 27th January 2017 we hosted a visit from the MP for North West Hampshire, Kit Malthouse.

He was interested to come and see us as we are a large employer in Andover and we contribute to the local community/economy.

He wanted to know what we do in terms of trade and employment, and spent a significant time in the factory understanding our processes and talking about the challenges we face.  He was particularly interested to hear about our procurement methods and close relationships with farmers, given he has a farming background himself.



Randall Parker Foods are looking for keen individuals to join our apprenticeship programme – commencing in July 2017.

We have a structured training programme which includes a combination of day release at Sparsholt college and on-the-job training in Year 1 to develop you from Novice Butcher status to a Level 2 Qualification.  In Year 2 you will continue to be mentored and coached by our Training Officer who will teach you the different Lamb cuts and help you to develop knife skills and  techniques to ensure the best products are produced while quality is maintained.

An Apprenticeship in Butchery will provide the essential skills to work with meat preparation in many different areas.  An Apprenticeship will also help develop a professional working style, safe working practices, awareness of the work environment and communicating effectively with colleagues and customers.

Your experience will include working in our production plant, our on site butchers shop, the Intake area and Quality Control. The next step will be to integrate you onto one of the main production lines to suit your specific skills i.e. retail butchery for supermarket customers or primal cutting for wholesale and export market.

You will need a good level of English and Maths together with a desire to learn and progress.

Interested? Is this for you?
