Life at Prima Cheese
and plenty more benefits too!
Our Production Operatives are all provided with the PPE they need to do their jobs on their first day in the role. The role pays above the national living wage. A lot of our Production Operatives have moved up to line leaders and supervisors and progression among our employees at Prima is something we are very proud of and encourage.
At Prima we like to raise money for our chosen charities and in 2021 we raised £1,250 for the Red Sky Ball Foundation. We love to do themed events every month and have hosted events including quizzes, bingo and fancy-dress competitions.
We are delighted to have won several awards at Prima, including our Inspiring Female Employer of the Year award, our several Export awards and the prestigious Queen’s Award.
Each and every member of the team is recognised for the work they do and the awards they help us to win. To celebrate our Queen’s award, we stopped the production lines and gathered the entire team of over 160 for a celebration in the sunshine, with a street food lunch.
We are also very proud of our zero percent gender pay gap at Prima and we pay everyone equally based on the job they do.
We’ve employed people from over 28 countries and our workforce is made up of individuals from all over the world and from all walks of life.
At Prima we are proud of our training facilities and state of the art training room and engineering workshop. We believe in developing talent within the company and offer development opportunities in all areas of the company. Our Management Accountant, Transport Supervisor and Raw Materials Coordinator to name but a few have all progressed through the ranks at Prima.
Our FED committee (Fairness, Equality & Diversity) works to promote inclusivity and offers a safe space for employees to raise any concerns.
