Section Manger MDLZ Sheffield, Maynards Bassetts
A bit about me…
I Joined MDLZ Sheffield in the summer of 2012, I was recruited to build and then lead the “new start” Oreo and belVita biscuit operation. In the summer of 2015 I moved across to the Candy side of the business to lead my current department.
Over my years in the food industry I have increased my technical knowledge in Health & Safety, Food Safety and more recently in MDLZ Sheffield, I have become increasingly familiar with Total Productive Maintenance (TPM) through MDLZ’s Integrated Lean 6 Sigma ways of working. I have also increased my self-awareness and personal effectiveness through the ‘Being at My Best’ development program that MDLZ employees are offered.
The best thing about working for Mondelēz International are the many iconic brands that you see both globally and in the UK, there is no better feeling than seeing a product that you have helped to manufacture being enjoyed by friends and family.
Our Sheffield Site
Sheffield is a traditional UK manufacturing site that has been located in its current location for over 100 years. This brings with it a number of challenges to ensure that we constantly improve in all that we do. However, when the site focuses on a challenge, it delivers. This leads to an enormous sense of both personal and professional satisfaction.
Living in Sheffield
Sheffield is a diverse city with two large universities and a strong manufacturing heritage. Situated centrally within the UK it offers easy access to many of the country’s interesting places to visit. The city center is vibrant after having many millions of pounds spent on it over recent years, and there are now many places to eat, drink and relax. There is also easy access to the Peak District National Park, one of the UK’s areas of outstanding beauty. In short, living in Sheffield offers both city and rural living, the choice is yours!
It’s too difficult to choose! But if I was pushed I would have to choose Trebor Softmints as a UK product, and globally Oreo… Oreo is the reason that I first joined the company!
