New 2 Sisters manufacturing site to create 200 jobs

2 Sisters is to open a new manufacturing facility in the former S&A Foods site in Derby. The new site is set to create 200 new jobs in the area.

The processor is holding a series of recruitment days at the start of February and will be hiring for a number of roles, including production line operatives, machine minders and line leaders, stores and despatch operatives, quality assurance, hygiene operatives and factory trainers.

The first phase of production will begin in mid-March with a further phase of production scheduled for late April and May, with a view to increasing employee numbers as the year progresses.

A 2 Sisters spokesman said: “We’re delighted to be able to resurrect this factory and bring new jobs to Derby. One of the things that first attracted us to the site was the close proximity to a high calibre, dedicated workforce that we knew would be able to produce some great quality food.

“There is still a lot of work to be done in the background to make the factory fully operational, but our recruitment days next week demonstrate that we’re getting closer to getting this site up and running again in the very near future.”
