About The Business:

This heritage, yet high growth, SME really does set the bar when it comes to product quality. With absolutely no artificial preservatives, flavourings or sweeteners, this business set the trend well before the sugar tax was even thought of.

With a brand name you’ll undoubtedly know, a senior management team that is quite frankly top draw, and a clear 5 year plan to triple turnover, this is the perfect time to get involved with some seriously impressive people and will help elevate your career to the next level.

Culturally, what a great business to be apart of. There’s the unique blend of the buzz and energy of an SME but this is met with a mature ethos that has been implemented by the senior team. And it really works!

Outside of work these guys know how to enjoy themselves. With regular meet ups for meals, physical and team activities they know when to put their phones down and enjoy time with the people they work with each day.
