The Company

Nigel Wright is extremely pleased to be the chosen recruitment partner for Primula Cheese, based in Gateshead. They are now looking to recruit a Multi Skilled Maintenance Technician who is highly motivated and looking for personal development. 

“Back in 1924, Primula began with big dreams and even bigger taste buds. Now, as part of the Kavli Trust, we’re proud to bring that creamy, squeezy, cheesy flavour to taste buds around the world. All while donating every pound of profit to good causes both near and far. We’ve been helping people squeeze more flavour into life with every tube, and last year we contributed over 10 million pounds* to charities that do serious good.

We believe that if you’re going to enjoy great cheese, you should do great things too. Part of our great thing is making an impact on the lives of people, their community, and our society as a whole.

It’s a simple mission that it makes a huge difference.”
