The new distribution centre is set to create 450 jobs

Derby City Council’s Economic Growth Service has joined forces with HelloFresh, a leading meal-kit delivery company, to showcase hundreds of roles that are available almost immediately.

HelloFresh is the first business to move on to SmartParc SEGRO, the city’s new high-tech food manufacturing and distribution campus at the former Celanese site in Spondon. Due to open in the spring, the new distribution centre named “The Orchard” is set to create 450 jobs for local people.

During the online Derby Jobs Live on 6 April, candidates will hear about a number of different roles – from warehouse and food packaging operatives to supervisory positions. 

The session will also give details of how to apply to take part in special assessment days later in the month. The Derby Adult Learning Service (DALS) will explain how they can help candidates with writing or improving their CVs. 

Many positions require little or no experience and all of them come with staff benefits, including discount on food boxes and a free breakfast for staff working in the office.

HelloFresh specialises in producing meal kits that include the recipe and ingredients to prepare nutritious meals. Founded in Berlin in 2011, the company delivers to over 4.2 million households worldwide in more than 15 countries across three continents.

Derby Jobs Live is a series of online recruitment events introduced to address changes in the labour market affecting many sectors as the country emerges from the pandemic.

Andy Smith, Strategic Director of People Services at Derby City Council, said:

HelloFresh are bringing good quality, sustainable jobs to the city which will help to boost the local economy. They are in a great location on the state of the art SmartParc SEGRO site, which is very well connected by multiple bus and train routes to and from the city centre.

Laurent Guillemain, CEO of HelloFresh UK said:

We are really excited to be opening The Orchard, our new distribution centre in Derby, where we will become good neighbours and supportive of the local community. Hundreds of operation, distribution, and management jobs are available now. 

Join a disruptive business that is changing the way people eat, forever. We look forward to meeting lots of you at Derby Jobs Live and sharing more of what HelloFresh has to offer.
