2 Sisters CEO sends urgent “help us feed the nation” appeal
The chief executive of 2 Sisters Food Group, Ronald Kers, has made a direct urgent appeal for new workers as the company deals with unprecedented demand brought on by the Covid-19 outbreak in the UK.
A social media video appeal was released after the company decided to launch its first-ever nationwide recruitment campaign due to the level of vacancies across all its businesses.
Kers said in his video post: “2 Sisters’ job is literally to feed the nation. Getting food to people has never been so important. As we come together as a country to fight the coronavirus, we need everybody’s help to keep our factories running.
“We are recruiting now for a wide range of factory and logistics jobs up and down the country. Please join us and help feed the nation.”
“We urgently need people so we can keep delivering a full range of products to supermarkets across the country. We are recruiting now for a wide range of factory and logistics jobs up and down the country. Please join us and help feed the nation.”
He added: “This has brought about an urgent need for vacancies, both permanent and temporary roles. We have seen this across food and retail. We are hopeful that given the devastating effect this current crisis has had on the leisure and hospitality sectors, we can reach out to these people and persuade them that a career in the food industry can be both fulfilling and enjoyable.”
