Manufacturing investment creates new apprenticeships

Monday, March 31, 2014

Meg Munn MP recently visited the Sheffield manufacturing site of Mondelez International to learn more about the recent 6 million investment in the factory.

Mondelez International is one of the world’s largest snacks companies. Their local factory produces popular confectionary such as Jelly Babies and Bassett’s Liquorice Allsorts. Following the recent investment it is now also home to Oreo and BelVita biscuits. Plant Director, Vanessa Smith, told Meg that the plant’s 400 employees produce a staggering 40,000 tonnes of candy per year!

Following a tour of the new biscuit line production, Meg met a number of the young people on the Mondelez apprenticeship programme, which can last for up to four years and includes the award of a qualification. The apprentices told Meg that the programme offers real experience which ensures they feel a valued part of the business.

Mondelez is aiming to double its apprenticeship intake from 66 during the coming year to reflect its commitment to secure and develop a consistent pipeline of talent. Given her campaigning to increase the numbers of women taking up careers in science, engineering and technology, Meg was delighted to see a number of women on the apprenticeship scheme.

Meg said:

“I really enjoyed visiting the Mondelez International factory. The recent investment has brought jobs and growth to the city and the wider region, and it represents a huge increase in the output and productivity of the Sheffield site.

From speaking to the young apprentices it was clear how much Mondelez also invests in its employees, offering a skilled and high value apprenticeship.”
