Production Operatives


Warminster, Wiltshire


Starting rate is £8.27 per hour + Shift enhancement and other benefits!


Are you:

1.  Reliable? You will be working as part of a team, the amount of people we need is based on customer orders which means if you don’t attend work when planned we really miss you!

2.  Fit and healthy? This is a physical job where you will be standing/walking/moving/lifting for the duration of your shift (apart from your breaks of course!) We rotate all the tasks regularly to ensure people aren’t doing the same thing for too long!

3.  Able to understand spoken and written English? All your training will be conducted in english and all of our procedures are in english -so it’s really important that you have a good level of written and spoken english!

4.  Able to work a 7 day shift pattern? Sometimes this pattern is called the ‘2’s and 3’s’ because of the pattern of work.  With this pattern you get every other weekend off.  It starts at 8am until 6pm but sometimes if we’re really busy we’ll ask you to come in earlier -maybe 6am or 7am. If you do come in earlier you’ll get a 10% shift premium. At weekends you’ll receive a 30% shift premium.  When we’re busy, it's likely we'll be offering you overtime as well!

IF you can answer a big YES to all of those questions then read on!


We offer a modern, clean production environment processing quality seafood providing most of the major supermarkets in the UK.

You'll be working in our frozen or fresh product packing halls where there are a number of tasks we'll need your help with - don't worry though - we provide training on site as well as all your protective clothing.

We look after our employees - everyone is a member of the Westfield Health Cashback Plan. We can also offer you free tea and coffee as well as access to our staff shop where you can buy top quality seafood at reduced prices. In addition, if you join our pension scheme we contribute 6%.

The Lyons values creates our unique culture that we are very proud of. You’ll need to share and demonstrate our values as one of our team members.

We have 3 rates of pay, you’d be joining on the starter rate (Currently £7.89 per hour but subject to increase in April 2019!) but as you get more experienced on the different lines and machines you rate of pay will go up!

We provide most of the major supermarkets with their fresh and frozen prawns. Because of this we get audited regularly to ensure we are keeping up our very high standards.  Auditors regularly speak to our Production Operators and the Production Operators need to be able to explain what they are doing and why they are doing it to show that they understand the customer specifications and food hygiene standards that they are working to.
