Speedway Sauce & Blending Operator

Do you love Juicies and Speedway Sauce as much as we do? Would you like to help us make these iconic products?

To be a blender you need to be physically strong as you will need to lift up to 25kgs though a lot of ingredients are pumped. But being a big burly type is not enough - you also need the smarts to follow a recipe, calculate quantities needed and follow written procedures. Experience in the food manufacturing industry would be ideal but is not essential.

We are looking for applicants who:
- Are physically strong and capable of heavy lifting
- Have the ability to follow a recipe
- Have good maths ability
- Are comfortable using machinery with trouble shooting skills (we have an onsite engineer to help)
- May have their forklift licence (not essential but certainly helpful).
- Can problem solve and think on their feet

We have a number of full time permanent positions based in Brightwater. If you think you can bring something special to our team please apply with a cover letter and CV by email to
