Wholesale Cheesemonger, Neal's Yard Dairy
We are looking for a Cheesemonger to join our Wholesale & Ecommerce Production Team at our Bermondsey maturing arches. The role is permanent and full time, though could work part time (4 days) for the right candidate.
This team handles about 80% of the cheese sold at Neal’s Yard Dairy – around 440 tons – destined for our UK and export trade customers. As you might imagine, handling that much cheese is physically demanding and requires precision and keen attention to detail to ensure that the right cheese gets to the right customers in optimum condition.
A lot of love goes into our cheese care from selection at farms through maturation to selection for customers by the sales teams. Our Bermondsey Cheesemongers are tasked with ensuring that all that hard work and dedication is reflected in the orders our customers receive. Great presentation skills, an understanding of the quality of the cheese being packed, and of the care and packaging it requires is paramount. Tasting cheese daily to stay tuned into that quality is a key part of the role.
The role is typically Monday to Friday with a 9 hour shift between 7am and 6pm, but will require some 4am starts on rotation, and some weekend work at peak times. We offer full on the job training, ample opportunity to learn about cheese and the Lean production methods that we employ. The jobholder will play a key part in contributing to the continuous improvement of our working methods on an ongoing basis.
We offer a competitive package with a salary of £23,273 FTE, full on the job training, staff lunches and a steady supply of excellent tea, coffee, fresh bread and cheese.
If this sounds like the opportunity for you, we would like to hear from you ASAP as we are looking to fill this position quickly.
