Production Operative

We currently have vacancies at our Stourton Dairy for Production Operatives to join our fast-paced team at Stourton Dairy & Creamery near Leeds. This is a 24/7 state of the art, automated facility producing over 500m litres of fresh milk a year and a huge range of cream-based products.



Reporting to the Production Team Leader, you will be operating high speed filling equipment with prime responsibility for maximising output efficiencies, consistent with the maintenance of strict quality, hygiene and safety standards.


You will be required to demonstrate good levels of numeracy and literacy and have a sound technical understanding. Previous experience within the dairy industry or chilled food manufacturing would be advantageous, but training will be provided. You must be able to work on your own initiative, have strong team working skills and a flexible attitude to work.

You must also be able to work a 4 on 4 off rotating shift pattern on an annualised hours contract basis.

In return you can expect a competitive salary and benefits package and the opportunity to work with a market leading company that encourages internal promotion.


COVID-19 Notice:

We are busy producing dairy products so we can continue #fillingtheshelves and #feedingthenation. Recruiting talent to Arla thus stays one of our top priorities also during these difficult times. Necessity is the mother of invention, so we have moved to virtual hiring and onboarding processes for most of our recruitments to enable candidates and our recruitment teams to get close while respecting social distancing. If at the final stages of a recruitment, a candidate would prefer to meet in person, we take all the necessary precautions to ensure everyone's safety.
