2 Sisters to create 200 jobs at Derby facility
Published:  28 January, 2016

2 Sisters is to open a new manufacturing facility in Derby, which will create 200 new jobs. 

The processor will be operating the former S&A Foods site in the city, with the facility focusing on a range of meals including kebabs, ready-to-cook chicken and ready-to-eat chicken.

The new roles will include production line operatives, machine minders and line leaders, stores and despatch operatives, quality assurance, hygiene operatives and factory trainers.

There will be a series of recruitment days in early February.

Production on the site will begin in mid-March, with a further phase of production in late April and May, with a view to increasing employee numbers towards the end of the year.

Director Stephen Cunningham said: “We’re delighted to be able to resurrect this factory and bring new jobs to Derby. One of the things that first attracted us to the site was the close proximity to a high-calibre, dedicated workforce that we knew would be able to produce some great-quality food.

“There is still a lot of work to be done in the background to make the factory fully operational, but our recruitment days next week demonstrate that we’re getting closer to getting this site up and running again in the very near future.”
