Production Operative - Fruit & Veg

Who we are and why work for Albion

Albion is a fast growing food wholesaler supplying fresh, frozen and ambient produce to some of the finest chefs across London and the South East. We have a customer base of over 2,000 and a product range of over 4,000, and these numbers are only going to continue growing!

We’re heading for bigger and better things over the coming months, moving from three small warehouses in Tonbridge to a brand-new site three times the size of our current premises put together, with that comes better process and a nicer working environment meaning your working life will be much smoother!

Work life balance is important to us here at Albion and we want you to spend more time at home with your family or doing the things you enjoy, so in addition to 30 days holiday you will also get an additional 22 days off a year worked into your rota, meaning you will work just 208 days in a year but still earn a full-time salary. Sounds too good to be true doesn’t it, but it’s not!

For the period between now and when we are fully operational out of Dartford you will be required to work out of Tonbridge but to help make that work, depending on your location we are willing to help out with travel expenses.

Once we’ve moved to the new site you’ll be able to enjoy a better work life balance, a subsidised café, a competitive salary which exceeds the Living Wage, employee discounts, opportunities to develop and learn new things.
