Muller, the Germany –based dairy company has announced that it is expanding its business and recruiting 100 to 300 new employees in a variety of permanent and temporary jobs across the UK. The newly created roles range from dairy technicians and factory and packaging operatives to delivery drivers and garage mechanics. The recruitment drive is motivated by the increased customer demand for dairy products in the wake of the Covid-19 epidemic and the ‘lockdown’ introduced in the UK.

The company’s CEO said that they are seeking skilled and qualified applicants who can help to feed the nation.

Muller has 80 sites in the UK and the Group employs around 7,500 people in the UK and the Republic of Ireland.
