Although perhaps better known for our veg, Riverford has its own butchery and delivers organic meat to homes across the country.   Riverford meat is organic, British, meticulously sourced, properly hung and carefully butchered for the very best quality and flavour. We have seen continuing growth in our meat sales and are looking for a butcher to join our busy team as a retail cutter.

This is a great opportunity to work with a quality product in a company that takes pride in the skills of its butchers and in providing its customers with the best meat possible. If you are ambitious there is fantastic scope for career progression

This is a permanent contract, 40 hours a week, Sunday to Thursday. Earliest start time 6.00 and latest finish 16.00. We need you to be flexible to work overtime during busy periods e.g. in the run up to Christmas.
