The most interesting thing about working at JDM has to be the complete diversity of both customers we serve and the products we offer. We supply well over 300 customers per week with over 1,000 stock keeping units across multiple sites and delivery days. When I tell people about my job they are generally surprised at the sheer depth and scope of the activities in which I am involved, no two days are ever the same!
The company’s vision is straightforward and sets a clear direction for our outstanding employees. I am privileged to have been part of the team responsible for shaping the company vision and am proud to be a part of this forward-thinking organisation. If you want to work for an ambitious dynamic and innovative food business where you will be given the opportunity to reach your full potential, then JDM Food Group is the place to be.
It’s my role to get food on JDM’s agenda and be excited about what we do. I look at food trends and what people are eating so we can breakdown recipes, innovate, add value and create uniqueness to food businesses and retailers adding a JDM twist!
At JDM our business is so diverse which spreads across a number of food categories so it’s always a challenge and your always learning something new. Also the people at JDM are amazing that have a can do approach with a genuine team spirit in everything we do.
We are a forward facing business that isn’t afraid of the future, we make quick decisions, which in other comparable food companies can take forever! At times the critical paths to launch products are really short which highlights the strong teamwork involved. Also JDM produces thousands of products which highlights it’s diversity and proactive approach to food solutions.
If you enjoy fast paced ‘foodie’ environment which puts people at the heart of the business JDM is for you. Everyday is so different.
The diverse nature of the work is what makes the job interesting. As a company we are a unique mix of wholehead vegetables and food manufacturing. There are many instances where one compliments the other particularly on crop utilisation, there can be many uses for one crop. At JDM we have a no blame culture and we all work as one team. The company has a pragmatic nature and decision making is done quickly.
JDM is a detailed business with so many different customers, suppliers and its products and lines. A new employee must be willing to throw themselves into the job, consequently you they will keep learning as JDM is a growing, successful business.
Beside the fact that we have around 300 customers, people are often surprised to know that we are the UK’s largest ginger and garlic importer, and our products arrive from all over the world. Also, our rate of growth since we have been at Bicker from 2010.
