Higher welfare pork and lamb processor Dalehead Foods will be taking on 25 new skilled and unskilled workers at its Corsham plant this month.

The site at the Leafield Industrial Estate produces sliced cooked meats and slow-cooked products for customers including Waitrose.

It currently employs more than 300 staff and is now increasing the size of its production team to support its ongoing expansion.

The vacancies include several skilled and unskilled roles in its manufacturing, packing and hygiene departments with successful applicants being offered a full programme of training to help advance their careers.

Dalehead Foods is part of Pilgrim’s UK, a fully integrated higher welfare farming and food business that manages the food production process from farm to fork.

Dalehead has been in Corsham for more than 30 years and the site has become known for its technical advancements – combining traditional skills and the latest technology.

Lynn Dyson, HR manager at Dalehead Foods in Corsham, said: “Our latest recruitment drive forms part of our long-term expansion plans for our Corsham site.

"It’s an integral part of our Dalehead business, serving quality products to high-profile customers across the UK. We’re now in the position to create more jobs in the local area, which has always been an ambition of ours.

“People are at the heart of everything we do and we are excited to welcome our new hires into the business. We are continuously looking at ways to make our Corsham site a great place to work and are looking forward to bringing our new joiners with us on our exciting journey ahead.”
