Production Operatives

Hours: Full Time. Location: Ballybrit, Galway.

Date Posted: 10th October 2022

Galmere Fresh Foods is looking for Production Operatives for a fast-paced food production factory, with or without experience, based in Ballybrit, Galway.

The role requires an energetic, hands on approach, as you’ll be working in production areas such as bulk cooking, vegetable preparation, and food packaging. We offer full-time (48 hour,) permanent contracts, and operate on a two shift cycle, with potential annual earnings of €30-35K.

This can be a position that offers progression for applicants looking for career growth. Many of our operatives have progressed to supervisors via our internal training programmes.

You will report to the Team Leader or Supervisor, and will be responsible for helping us meet the highest level of hygiene, food safety and health and safety standards.

Ideal Qualities:

  • Strong English and good communication skills
  • Ability to work with others as a team
  • A friendly and flexible attitude
  • Attentive to detail (in relation to production procedures)
  • Previous experience in a factory setting, or hands on position is a plus 
  • Access to own vehicle as public transport routes are limited

If this sounds relevant to you, and you want a stable position which pays competitively, we would love to hear for you. To apply, please send a CV to, or complete the form below.
