We're the biggest name you've never heard of. You've probably eaten our food - you just didn't realise it. We make innovative fresh products, with around 18,500 colleagues working across the UK, US and China. We’re the market leader in the UK fresh prepared food industry supplying meals, salads, desserts, pizza and bread to leading grocery retailers (including Tesco, M&S, Sainsbury's and Waitrose). We’re ambitious. We’re full of ideas. And we’re ready for more people who share our values and passion for quality to join us.

We’re proud to offer you a career with real scope for development. To reward your hard work and ambition as a talented Management Accountant with plenty of support and opportunity. And empower you to drive your own success and create a career you can be proud of too.

The Role

Overall, our Meals London business is multi-site employing over 2,400 people across three factories and one distribution centre. Our factories make chilled ready meals, houmous dips, deli products and savoury accompaniments.

In this busy and exciting role, you will provide a high-quality service to support internal stakeholders as the lead point of contact for two of the factories. This is not your typical management accountant role; you’ll be hands on working closely with operations - providing support from a finance perspective. Undertaking responsibility to report, drive and challenge factory performance - will be top of your agenda.


  • Preparing reports for review, circulating reports and presenting in meetings
  • Business partnering - building strong relationships with other functions
  • Applying the commercial and operational controls and escalating breaches to management
  • Preparing, reviewing and presenting costing analysis of our current and future product ranges - supporting commercial and development functions
  • Providing analysis on Capex opportunities at sites
  • Establishing yourself as site finance lead on minor project implementations
  • Limited month end involvement

About you

Ideally, you will have previous experience of working in a similar role within a fast-paced environment and be CIMA/ACCA (or other recognised bodies) part qualified or QBE - further support could be offered whilst in role to continue studies.

If you have strong communication skills, confidence of working with data to build analysis - with the ability to work at pace to meet deadlines, and independently to drive actions - this could be the perfect role for you.

When joining us you can expect a highly competitive rewards package including group pension, bonus, private medical insurance, and other flexible benefits - alongside excellent career progression prospects across the Bakkavor group.

Proud to be Bakkavor
