No two days are the same. The diversity of what we do keeps us sharp and on our toes. In terms of the work I do, it is simply fantastic due to the fact I can get involved in so many diverse topics not only within Technical but in other departmental areas too.
At JDM everyone has a great work ethic which leads to a can do attitude which is one of the pillars JDM has built its reputation upon, it is like working in a big family. A key benefit for working at JDM is the red tape free decision making process instilled by our Managing Director Jon Chesworth. It is so refreshing and motivating.
The one underlying thing that surprises people about my job is the amount of due diligence which goes into supplying all the food they eat. From complex sauces down to a simple sweet potato, a bulb of garlic or a hand of ginger. They do not realise how much time, effort, money and passion goes into supplying the foods they love.
If you have a positive attitude to work, want to better yourself in the food industry and are willing to contribute to an excellent business, come join us.
I enjoy being able to see a product from the first development stages up to being sold at my local supermarket shelves and knowing that my team was a part of it. The working environment at JDM is encouraging and supportive and I feel we have a very strong senior management team. I believe the people are our biggest company strength, we have a strong work ethic, positive attitude and are loyal. Working amongst such outstanding people, who have become my friends, is greatly beneficial and contributes a lot to team effectiveness.
I strongly stand for the company’s values and vision. Getting the right people in the right positions and all working to the same goal with a can-do attitude, honesty and as a strong team is very important to company’s success.
Those who desire to work at JDM have to be honest and ask themselves if they are passionate about the food industry, which is always super busy, fast paced and can be quite stressful at times. If the answer is yes and you are open to new challenges, then JDM is a perfect place to start or develop your career.
