2018 Apprentice Programme looking for applicants

Randall Parker Foods are looking for keen individuals to join our apprenticeship programme.

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.

We have a structured training programme which includes a combination of 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.

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.
