The business is seeking 30 butchery, nine engineering and nine technical apprentices to join the company at various locations across its UK operation.
Tulip’s group HR director, Kirsty Wilkins, said: “We have a number of fantastic apprenticeship opportunities in butchery, engineering and technical disciplines available at locations across our UK operation, all candidates will be assessed throughout their apprenticeship to ensure that they learn the knowledge and relevant skills in their chosen function.
“Candidates successfully completing the training programme will gain relevant formal qualifications and Tulip will provide them with support at every stage of their apprenticeship to assist them in building a career in the food industry.”
The recruitment process is currently underway and is expected to conclude in early April.

“Anyone interested in finding out more about the various opportunities available in their locality should, in the first instance, visit the National Apprenticeship Service’s website www.apprenticeships.gov.uk or contact their local Jobcentre Plus,” Wilkins added.
