IPS is a people business and we take great pride in developing our team. We have a core number of staff across all our facilities and this number is trebled at peak times. Many of our seasonal workers return year after year.
Packing operatives are trained on a number of different lines to ensure flexibility within the team and improve job satisfaction. All workers have training in Food Hygiene, Manual Handling and other training in relation to their specific role. We also support employees in additional development as identified at their regular review meetings.
We have a policy of promoting within the organisation and many of our team leaders and managers started working with us as operatives many years ago. A number of staff are currently being supported by the company to achieve relevant management qualifications.
We are delighted to link-up with our local Colleges to offer a new business apprenticeship in addition to our well-established electrical and mechanical apprenticeships.
With our high level of expertise and innovative approach, we offer our manufacturing partners the best possible option for their product.
Our vast experience working with some of the biggest names in food has allowed us to develop processes both for the mass market and for more niche products. We ensure that these are brought to the market in a cost-effective and timely manner.
As part of the Culina Group we offer a nationwide packing and delivery service.
