Meet the our graduates - Hannah and Hannah

Community News 16.01.18

Meet Hannah and Hannah, they both started placements at Aunt Bessie’s in September 2017 as part of our Technical Graduate Scheme. They’re doing pretty different things on their placements there though, which they’ve shared more detail on.

If what they’re doing inspires you and sounds like the type of stuff that you’d like to be doing daily, apply to our 2018 Technical Graduate Scheme – don’t worry, you don’t have to be called Hannah to apply!

Hannah Newton joined us in 2017 and this is her first placement:

“I am currently working within the NPD team at Aunt Bessie’s. I carry out some market research with the innovation team and then look at processing new product ideas. This involves looking at our legislative requirements, Aunt Bessie’s and co-packer regulations and capabilities, working with the procurement team to source new ingredients and attending audits and factory trials. I also spend time with the technical team carrying out shelf life testing, bench marking and consistency testing to ensure our products are the best quality for our consumers. It is great fun getting hands on in the factory with trials and audits.”

Hannah Wenlock joined us in 2016 and has already completed a year’s placement at our vegetable specialist business, Myfresh:

“I am currently part of the Quality and Compliance (Technical) team at Aunt Bessie’s. Over my final year on the scheme I am working on a range of projects such as establishing supply chain mapping documentation for all raw materials used on site. This enables me to work closely with suppliers learning more about the supplier and ingredient approval process. Whilst also completing key objectives, such as getting involved in accreditation audits, customer launches and resolving customer complaints. All this gives me a detailed over view of the technical function and helps me build skills and knowledge to progress into a career into technical management.”
