About Jacksons

Jacksons is part of William Jackson Food Group, a sixth-generation family business founded by William Jackson when he opened his first shop in Hull in September 1851. Today we have a portfolio of five food businesses in distinct, yet complimentary market areas, employing over 2,000 people.

We have occupied the current site in Hull since 1907 and we now have 3 bread plants in our main bakery. We recently developed a second bakery, also at our site in Hull, which specialises in premium quality roll production. We specialise in the supply of bread and other carriers to the sandwich manufacturers, foodservice, and export channels, and in 2012 we launched our consumer facing brand “Jackson’s of Yorkshire”.

We recently opened a brand-new site in Corby, Northamptonshire – one of the largest investments our Group has ever made – and this will allow us to realise our ambition of being the best at what we do. 2022 is an exciting time to join us – make this year a toast to you and apply now!

What’s involved?


  • In your new role as a production operative, you will be working as part of a team to ensure that production targets are met on time and in accordance with company standards.
  • You will work with speed and efficiency on our production line to ensure that our products are of a high standard.
  • In your day-to-day you will be quality checking, meeting production targets, ensuring machines are running effectively and ensuring product safety.
  • You will have health and safety at the forefront of all actions, making the site a leader in exemplary health and safety behavior and performance.

Job commitments

As a production operative you will be working 12-hour shifts, during which you will get four 30-minute breaks, three of which are paid breaks. Once a month you will get 7 consecutive days off because of our four weekly shift patterns.  Our shift patterns include days, nights, weekend, and bank holiday working.

About You

If you have experience in a manufacturing environment that’s great, but this is not required for the role as full training is given. What’s most important to us is that you have a positive and resilient attitude toward work as well as being able to work well as part of a team.
