CherryTree Bakery is launching a major recruitment drive following a series of new contract wins with major national retailers.

The Burnley-based bakery is introducing a new weekend shift in order to meet growing demand and is set to create more than 50 jobs in 2023.

The business, which has doubled its turnover in the last three years, will introduce a new production line immediately and plans to launch a second line in the summer in order to meet its order book demands.

The company, which employs more than 120 people and operates from Billington Road, is holding a Recruitment Open Day at Turf Moor on Tuesday, January 31, 10am to 10pm. Potential candidates will be able to find out more information about the different roles on offer and take part in interviews with the Cherrytree team.

Cherrytree Bakery HR Manager Christine Quigley said:

“We have enjoyed a number of years of successful growth and demand continues to be high which is why we need to introduce the new Friday to Monday shift.

“We’re looking for people who have the drive and energy to work for us and who want to achieve their potential.”

Managing Director Mark Beaumont added:

“We work for some fantastic clients and there is career progression for those who want it. Most importantly,  we are looking for hard working, reliable individuals who take pride in what they do.”

The jobs will cover all areas of production and packing from machine set up, machine operation, making, baking, quality-checking, and packing. Pay rates range from £11.79 to £15.95 per hour.
