Production Team Member -Full time

Location: Gloucester Services

Dept: Catering

Job Code: GHM204

We are looking for a team member to join our Production Unit to use traditional and home-made methods to produce the best tasting food for customers. We are proud to be a food business; we love food and we think food is important, how it's sourced, how it's made and how it looks and tastes. We make our own food for our Kitchens and in our Farmshop we form close partnerships with small producers who are doing something unique and brilliant.

Good food is at the very heart of everything we do. We believe good food matters. So we serve it where you'd least expect it - on the motorway. We were the first family run motorway services on the UK motorway network and over the past 45 years have grown to a business which has over 1100 people working with us across six sites.

We couldn't do anything without our family of colleagues working together to create long lasting positive memories for our customer. We are proud of our difference and are constantly striving to do it better. We work with people who really care about food and where it comes from and want to share this experience with our customers.

Gloucester Services is a unique motorway service area on the M5 located near to Gloucester between Junctions 11A and 12. We are proud that were the first ever motorway services to be listed in the Good Food Guide in 2016. We also collected the coveted 'Best Newcomer' award at the Observer Food Monthly Awards in 2014. The award was judged by top food professionals including Jay Rayner, Tom Kitchen and Lorraine Pascale amongst others.
