Savoury food manufacturer Addo Food Group is offering temporary work to anyone who has been made redundant following the coronavirus pandemic.
The company makes savoury quiches, pies, pasties, slices, scotch eggs, sausage rolls and pork pies for major retailers as well as leading brands such as Wall’s Pastry and Pork Farms.
Now it has launched a recruitment drive for new temporary staff at its Palethorpes factory, in Market Drayton.
The company – which also has sites in Nottingham and Poole – has 300 jobs up for grabs across all its sites, with dozens available in Shropshire.
It is keen to find people with all levels of experience in hospitality and leisure to work in a variety of roles on the production lines. Full training will be provided.
It comes as hundreds of hospitality workers have lost their jobs across North Staffordshire this week – including at The Quarter, in Hanley.
Addo Food Group chief executive Deborah Bolton said: “Coronavirus has impacted on so many hospitality businesses already and as workers are being laid off all over the country from restaurants, pubs and bars, we’re pleased to be able to offer temporary positions within our sites, including Palethorpes, which may help to ease the financial pressure that a lot of people now find themselves in.
“It’s a really difficult time for people and it’s important that we help where we can.”
