Avara creates 130 new roles at Dudley factory
Chicken and turkey supplier Avara Foods is currently recruiting for 130 new permanent roles after seeing big increases in production capacity and demand.
Production capacity has leapt by 30% at the company’s Dudley plant, with the factory producing hundreds of thousands more units of product than in 2020. The site now operates seven days a week, rather than the previous five and the summer months are particularly busy.
The jobs are being offered across all operational functions at the Brierley Hill site, including production, technical, engineering, planning and stores. Avara has invested over £6 million in Covid-19 protective measures across its UK-wide operations.
Site manager Mick Hillson said: “We’re well-established here in Dudley and this latest recruitment drive is evidence of our ongoing commitment to the area. Our factory is very important to Avara’s wider operations and I’m pleased we’re expanding.”
He added: “We understand many people are facing uncertainty but want them to know with a variety of full and part-time positions, both permanent and temporary situations and a broad spectrum of roles available, we’re a local employer they can look to for a new opportunity.”
