Seasonal Production Team Cheesemongers

Neal's Yard Dairy
Bermondsey, London

Posted: 9 Nov 2022

Deadline: 24 Dec 2022

Compensation: £11.05 per hour

Paid Full-time Flexible hours Fixed term / contract


Job description

We are looking for hard-working and enthusiastic Cheesemongers to join our Production Team to help us through our busiest period in December! 

This team handles about 80% of the cheese sold at Neal’s Yard Dairy - around 440 tons - destined for our UK and export trade customers as well as our ecommerce customers. As you might imagine, handling that much cheese is physically demanding and requires precision and keen attention to detail to ensure that the right cheese gets to the right customers in optimum condition.

A lot of love goes into our cheese care from selection at farms, through to maturation, to selection for customers by the sales teams.

Our Production Cheesemongers are tasked with ensuring that all that hard work and dedication is reflected in the orders our customers receive. Great presentation skills, an understanding of the quality of the cheese being packed, and of the care and packaging it requires is paramount. Though cheese experience would be an advantage, it’s not a necessity. 


  • An hourly rate of £11.05 per hour plus holiday pay
  • Full on-the-job training
  • Free delicious staff lunches every day
  • A steady supply of fresh bread and cheese (of course!) as well as tea and coffee
  • A generous staff discount is offered to all employees including our seasonal team


  • Full availability December 11th to 22nd inclusive.
  • From 16th-22nd of December the team break out into two shifts - 5am-2pm and 2.30pm-11.30pm. You will work either of these shifts during this time so must ensure you can get to and from Bermondsey at these hours.

If this sounds like the opportunity for you, we would like to hear from you ASAP as we are looking to fill these positions quickly. To apply, please complete the form below.
