Cranstons Orton Grange Food Hall will employ 20 staff


Cranstons are now recruiting staff for their new Food Hall at Orton Grange near Carlisle. Full and part time vacancies are available for butchers, sales assistants and till staff. In total over 20 people will be employed at the brand new Food Hall which is set to open this November.

Peter Potts, who was recently appointed as Cranstons Orton Grange Food Hall Manager, said, ‘We are very excited to start recruiting for our new Food Hall which will offer Cranstons famous local produce along with goods from a whole host of Cumbrian food and drink producers. We’re looking for hard-working, conscientious people that are passionate about food and can give customers the excellent standard of service that we are known for.’

Cranstons Food Hall at Orton Grange is the latest expansion move for the successful Cumbrian firm who already operate 4 traditional butcher's shops in Penrith, Carlisle, Hexham and Brampton and a flagship Cumbrian Food Hall just off junction 40 of the M6.

HR and Payroll manager Linda Bellas said, 'We are thrilled to announce the creation of 20 jobs at our new Food Hall site. Cranstons already employ 170 people across our 5 existing shops and production unit. We have been inundated with e-mails and letters from people asking whether they can apply for roles so it is great to get started with the application and interview process.'

Linda also explained that Cranstons are committed to developing their staff: 'New employees can look forward to excellent on-the-job training and the opportunity to train for industry qualifications. If someone has the right work ethic and a passion for food they will get the opportunity to progress to a more senior role. Several of Cranstons current senior managers started as counter assistants and butchery apprentices.'
