We provide consumers with a comprehensive range of products in four key mega-categories - fresh meat & sausage, bacon & gammon, cooked meat, and convenience & snacking. Our farm-to-fork operation is unique in the industry, while our strategic framework puts customers, product, efficiency and people at the heart of everything we do, all with a view to growing responsibly.

As part of the Danish Crown Group, the largest pork provider in Europe and the biggest exporter of pork in the world, our client is well-placed to deliver its ambitious plans for sustainable growth. If you have an appetite for more, this could be the role for you.

Have you ever considered learning butchery? The art of butchery is a traditional culinary art that is an often overlooked, but vitally important, aspect of the farm-to-fork movement and here at Tulip we hold our skilled Butchers in high regard.

Our clients' impressive site in Westerleigh, Bristol is currently recruiting for a number of Butchery roles. We have exciting opportunities available for both Trainee Butchers and Skilled Butchers.

You will be responsible for de-boning and trimming pork primals to agreed quality specifications, meeting all targets including quality, safety and throughput.

To be one of our Trainee Butchers, we are looking for people who have a good attitude and commitment to learning a new trade and to achieving results through determination.

If you are a Skilled Butcher, we will require you to undertake a block test during your interview to assess your skills.

In addition, we're looking for candidates who possess excellent communication skills combined with the ability to work independently but also effectively as part of the team. You will possess practical / manual handling skills and will have basic H&S awareness and basic Food Safety Awareness.
