OnSite Food

We are located on over 350 sites in the UK and Ireland and find work for over 50,000 people every day.

Staffline OnSite Food is the largest provider of labour to the Food manufacturing and production sectors, and specialises in meat, fish, poultry and ready to eat meals. Our clients include Muller, Tulip Ltd and Samworth Brothers.

What we do - recruitment expertise with a business focus

Our experience and expertise within the food sector means we are able to offer advice in critical business areas. We are able to create productivity and pricing models which meet the client’s objectives and ensure optimum efficiency in terms of performance and cost.

Our experience within the food sector also means we can strategically help forecast, fulfill and manage your temporary workforce requirements to meet changes in operational demands.

Our focus is fulfilling staffing requirements and ensuring high rates of retention. Each is as important as the other. We offer key performance analysis with the goal to work with you to build continuous improvement plans into the business.

“Thanks to the team at Staffline, I know I'm guaranteed to have enough workers to meet our peak season demands.”

James Diamond, Manufacturing Operations Manager, Hotel Chocolat

Resourcing candidates

We have scale and experience in logistics which means we are able to fulfill large scale resourcing and recruitment plans within short time-frames.

We have access to a vast candidate pool of over 500,000 people. We have a National Resource Centre (NRC) focused on resourcing large volumes of people every week. We resource from the UK and overseas. The NRC takes responsibility for placing adverts, response-handling and initial vetting. This means all applicants are pre-screened before being asked to interview at the client’s site, allowing the OnSite teams to concentrate 100% on the day-to-day operational requirements.

We are able to build the client’s talent pool and, at the same time, offer flexible work for candidates. It’s a win-win situation.

“It is testament to Staffline that we have taken more than 300 of their temporary staff on permanently in the last twelve months and they have always been able to replace them with a new hire of the same quality without any disruption.”

Championing compliance

We take compliance with legislation and industry standards extremely seriously. Offering a total commitment to our clients to ensure that all of our workers are recruited and supplied to the standards required by the Gangmasters and Labour Abuse Authority (GLAA).

We have an outstanding compliance record and reputation with the Gangmasters and Labour Abuse Authority (GLAA). We uphold the highest standards and have a dedicated, central compliance team who work 24/7 to check worker eligibility and who monitor each aspect of the regulations.

We also work hand in hand with the GLAA to raise awareness of the risks to businesses regarding labour exploitation and modern-day slavery. Our Director of Compliance and Ethical Standards is a regular key speaker at industry events, educating businesses on the risks of modern-day slavery and offering best practice advice.
