Grimsby-based Young’s Seafood to create more than 400 new jobs
1 Minute Read
Young’s Seafood is looking for more than 400 new recruits across a variety of factory-based roles in Grimsby. The food manufacturer is already the Lincolnshire town’s biggest employer.
Posts include production operatives in the company’s ‘giga’ factory at Humberstone Road, at The Docks and across its wider estate.
The recruitment is being driven by an increased demand for Young’s products, and is expected to take the firm’s headcount in the city from 2,500 to 3,000 by the end of 2021.
Terry Tuplin, site director, said: “We believe in creating positive, well-founded employee relationships, a great work-life balance, fair reward and long-term career prospects.
“Its foundation is built from over 200 years’ experience in fish manufacturing and this has allowed our organisation to provide sustainable employment for development and growth in Grimsby.
I myself was recruited from the shop floor over 30 years ago, and as my career flourished, so did the success of the business.
“We can all enjoy the development, investment and opportunities to grow here at Young’s. Many of our management population have grown up with the business and so can anyone else.
We’re proud to be in a position where we can grow our team and continue to help inspire our nation to love and eat fish now and for generations.
Young’s is the UK’s market leading brand and also supplies seafood under supermarket and major multiples’ own labels.
