Karro to host open days for potential butchery apprentices

Karro Food Limited is holding open day sessions, offering people the opportunity to find out more about becoming a butchery apprentice.

The open day sessions are to be held at Karro’s Malton headquarters with presentations outlining the job role and career opportunities at the business being showcased. The apprenticeships are open to people of all ages, although Karro has expressed particular interest in hearing from school leavers and younger people.

Each session will include a site tour and Q&A session, give potential apprentices the chance to learn about the Butchery Apprenticeship Standard which is currently available at levels two and three.

Successful apprentices will learn a range of skills and knowledge required to become an expert butcher, as well as learning about meat standards, commercial aspects of meat processing, traceability, auditing practices and customer requirements.

Cathy Lafferty, human resources director at Karro Food Limited, said the scheme offers young people a way to achieve industry recognised certification whilst also being able to work full time and earn a great income.

“By starting a career with Karro people will be fully supported by our own highly specialised in-house butchery teams as well as receiving expert training on our 18 month structured programme,” said Ms Lafferty.

“This is provided by our training providers who are extremely successful in helping our apprentices grow both personally and professionally, with many of our apprentices going on to achieve UK awards for expertise and commitment.”

Held at Karro’s site at Hugden Way, Malton, Y017 9HQ, the sessions will be run on Friday 23rd July at noon and 6pm and on Saturday 24th July at 10am and 1pm. Attendees are asked to arrive at reception to sign in and to bring ID along with them.
