Job Details

Do you want a job that could lead to a permanent role, with guaranteed shifts and hours?

Farne Salmon and Trout Ltd, Scotlands Best Employer to work for 2016 awards finalist, are coming to Peterborough and have chosen to work with Pertemps Recruitment to recruit for their new site. The purpose built labelling and packaging site is located on Funthams Lane, PE7 2PB just off Peterborough Road (the road between Stanground and Whittlesey).

Farne buy in fresh Salmon and Trout, which is then filleted, cured and smoked using conventional and traditional smoking processes. The smoked Salmon is then sliced and packed ready for supply to retail and catering trades both in the UK and continental markets.

People at the heart of what Farne do and that is reflected in the company's values, which are


Relationships that are based on honesty, courtesy, respect and trust.


Take responsibility for our own attitude, behaviour, performance and results.


Working together to achieve fantastic results.


Farne are passionate about open, honest and constructive two way communication.


Farne deliver excellent quality and service in every way, both internally and externally.


Creating a positive working environment. Farne recognise, value, encourage and develop everyone's contribution.

All the prep work with the fish will be done in Scotland before the fish is sent to Peterborough to be labelled and sent out to retailers. There will be no handling of raw products at this site, everything will be pre-packed. Here we will be placing the labels on the packets and re-boxing them ready for delivery to the retailers.

It's a chilled environment, around 5 degrees Celsius so white coats will be provided to wear over your jumpers/coats. Because it's still a food site clean indoor only footwear and a changing area will also be provided, so you can change out of your shoes and into your work shoes as you come into site. You will be able to have one earphone in to listen to your music whilst at your work station, of course you will be able to talk to your colleagues too.

The hours are 8 - 12 hour shifts, 4 days on, 4 days off. This means 44 hours per week. Initially though it will be 8am - 5pm Monday to Friday. Pay is £8.00 per hour. There will be no cancelling of shifts, cutting hours or sending people home early (unless you want to go). There is a brand new break area, on site parking and lockers available.

The site is right in front of the McCains factory, so really easy to get to. 10 mins walk from Stanground, 5 mins drive or a 15 minute bus journey from the city centre (route 31/33).

Forget working at one of the usual places this Christmas, work with Pertemps and Farne Salmon and Trout. Enjoy working in a friendly environment free from pick targets, where you can listen to your own music and talk to the people you're working with. Work full time without having shifts cancelled, no fights for parking, scanners, lockers or signing in sheets and with a company and agency that puts it's people first.
