WAREHOUSE N5
WHOLESALE ASSISTANT MANAGER - FULL TIME

La Fromagerie is proud to supply some of the most reputable chefs and restaurants in the UK. Our cheeses are sourced directly from small artisan cheesemakers across the UK & Europe and delivered directly to our door. Our respect for the producer is best showcased in our affinage process; once the cheese arrives we continue its maturation in specially designed rooms, washing and encouraging the growth of moulds. Hard cheeses are stored and turned in our cellars. The affinage process allows that we only release cheeses when they are at their best.

La Fromagerie is now looking for a new Assistant Wholesale Manager to support the Wholesale Manager with the next stage of business growth. Ideally the candidate should have recent experience in cheese wholesale or be looking to transition from a front-of-house role in a high end food business. The candidate should have a driving license and be willing to drive a trade vehicle if required. A knowledge of quality control and food safety would also be preferable.

To apply please email your CV along with a covering letter to warehouse@lafromagerie.co.uk.

WAREHOUSE N5
GROUP QUALITY CONTROL/TECHNICAL MANAGER

La Fromagerie has two locations in central London, Marylebone W1 & Highbury N5; the first shop, situated in Highbury Park, opened in September 1992, the second, just off Marylebone High Street, opened in November 2002. Both shops feature cheese maturing cellars & our signature walk-in Cheese Rooms. In Autumn 2011 La Fromagerie moved its wholesale department offsite from Marylebone W1 to specially designed cellars in Highbury, where our affinage now takes place.

Due to the continued growth of La Fromagerie Wholesale, as well as the role-out of additional retail stores, the company is now recruiting for a Group Quality Control/Technical Manager. The candidate should have worked in specialist food wholesale or manufacturing business and been integral to the implementation, maintenance and continuous improvement of HACCP and SALSA processes and procedures. This new role presents a great opportunity for the successful candidate to spearhead the quality control function across the Wholesale business and retail stores, and to support the company in its continued growth and expansion.
