Faccenda Foods launches search for the next generation of engineers

May 25th, 2016

Brackley, UK – Faccenda Foods, one of the UK’s leading food companies, is holding an engineering open day at its Brackley facility to help inspire the next generation of engineers.


On Tuesday 31st May young adults from across the region are being encouraged to find out more about a career as an engineer, working in one of the UK’s largest food producers.


The open day is taking place at Faccenda’s Brackley site on Willow Road, and anyone going along will be able to find out about Faccenda’s industry-leading FIRST apprentice programme and ask questions of the current engineering team. Northampton College, who support the engineering apprenticeship, will be on hand to explain more about the support they give and there are prizes to be won in some special engineering challenges.


The reason for the open day is simple, according to Andrew Brodie, HR and Communications Director at Faccenda Foods, “Engineers are a vital part of our team but there simply aren’t enough in the UK at the moment: so we’re going to grow our own. Faccenda Foods is a great place for future engineers to come; we’ll help them develop their skills, offer career opportunities and, even as an apprentice, offer rates of pay above the current National Living Wage.


This open day is all about showcasing what we have to offer and encouraging more young people to consider engineering as a career option.”


The open day is at Faccenda Foods’ site on Willow Road in Brackley. If you’re at school leaving age and would like to know more about a career in engineering, drop in any time between 10am and 2pm on 31st May.
