From pastry making, to cooking our delicious fillings, our production careers are physical but satisfying. Using the very best ingredients our bakers all play a part in creating the people’s pie.

We give a competitive holiday entitlement to allow you to have a break from work and come back refreshed.
The Pukka Pension scheme is a great way to save for the future, and the great thing is that as well as the contributions you make to the scheme, Pukka also contributes to your pension fund.
We know that this can be a difficult subject to talk about, but our Life Assurance is a free death in service benefit available to you up to the age of 65.
The Bike2Work scheme is a Government approved salary sacrifice initiative allowing you to purchase a bike and accessories for the purpose of cycling to work at a discount.

Our colleagues can purchase the wonderful pies that they make at a discounted rate, to take home to share with their families.
All our colleagues can join the private healthcare scheme which includes dental and eye care cash back, once they have a qualifying service. They can also benefit from discounted rates for their families.
