Cranswick is a leading UK food company supplying all the major retailers, and increasingly active in food service and export.

The company’s growth record is outstanding with annual sales reaching £875 million in the year ending 31st March 2013. In the first half of this year we have just announced sales growth of 15% versus last year.

The growth we have achieved in tough economic conditions is a testament to the quality and commitment of the people who work for us. It is our people who differentiate us and give us the enviable reputation we have amongst our customers.

At the centre of everything we do are our products. We encourage our people to have a real passion for food which helps drive a culture of innovation and an obsession for quality. We operate in the fresh pork, gourmet sausage, air dried bacon, cooked meat, gourmet pastry and sandwich markets. We also specialise in a wide range of continental product categories including charcuterie, fresh olives, fresh pasta, pâté and Italian cheeses.

We pride ourselves in really “knowing our stuff” when talking to customers, suppliers, and each other. This is borne out of our continual pursuit of knowledge and is supported by the considerable qualitative and quantitative research we undertake across the group.

We are now on the hunt for key commercial people to play an active role in the continued growth of our business. We are looking for bright, talented and hungry individuals to thrive in our open, honest and fast moving environment. In return, we reward well and have a track record of developing people to realise their full potential. If you like what you have read so far and believe you can make a real difference, then look at the jobs we have on offer and get in touch.
