Full-time HR Manager required

Salary £30,000 - £35,000 per annum

We are currently looking for a HR Manager to join our busy team based at Maylands Avenue in Hemel Hempstead.

About us:

DDC Foods Ltd was founded in 1996, for the purpose of offering an alternative range of snacks and soft drinks to the consumer, compared to the mainstream readily available brands. The point of difference would be that the products were truly innovative, healthier as well as new and exciting. The company would embrace new ideas and concepts from entrepreneurs who share the same vision and aspirations by creating brands that change the way we snack and drink.

Over the years, we have been instrumental in supporting such ideas and helping businesses showcase and distribute their products. This has been our company’s ethos and true to our vision we have not diversified from this. In December 2016, we introduced chilled and frozen products to our range.

We are a national distribution company servicing over 97% of our customers with our own fleet of vehicles.
