Dream job alert! Fancy working in a real-life Willy Wonka-esque factory? Fans of Haribo Starmix and Tangfastics will be happy to know that the amazing sweet factory is looking for summer staff.
Imagine being paid in sweets and gorging yourself on sour cherry until you have the biggest sugar high you’ve ever experienced (well that’s what we imagine it’s like working at a sweet factory anyway).
What we imagine working for Haribo is like:
More realistically is an hourly rate of £11.16 an hour with a 20% discount on Haribo sweet whilst you work there, which is still pretty sweet (pardon the pun).
The Pontefract and Castleford factories are advertising for temporary summer jobs finishing on August 28th, 2022. And, although you won’t be working with Umpalumpas, it still seems like pretty decent summer jobs for any uni students or people looking for some extra work.
The advert reads: “We are looking for passionate candidates to join us on a temporary basis during the summer months in our Packing and Production departments at our Pontefract site!
“Based in either our Production or Packing teams and reporting to our Shift Supervisors, you’ll be a vital part of the team helping our Operators with the general running of the department. This is a great opportunity to gain hands on experience with a market leading company. We are all about Childlike Happiness so come have some fun with us this summer!”
If you’re looking for some extra work over the summer and have good communication skills, ability to work as part of a team and reliability then get applying here.
