Up to 50 new jobs are to be created in Shropshire at centres for production of yogurt and chilled desserts owned by Müller Dairy. The new roles at Müller's Telford and Minsterley facilities follow strong growth in demand for the private label yogurt and desserts produced at these sites.

The company recently announced the potential loss of 43 posts in Market Drayton as part of a review of operational efficiencies, and is ensuring that those who may be affected are offered the opportunity to transfer. Posts available at Telford and Minsterley include Production Operators, Stores roles, Process Operators and Engineering positions.

Roger Emery, Müller Dairy's Operations Director said: “We are excited by the growth in private label yogurts and desserts and delighted to be able to create these new posts at Telford and Minsterley. “We are offering careers in a business which continues to develop and aims to be the best dairy company in the UK.

“We currently employ almost 1,000 people in Shropshire and we intend to continue to build our business in the area.” Müller will host recruitment stands at jobs fairs in Telford, Manchester and Northampton throughout July, along with recruitment advertising and internal notices aimed at existing employees. Open days will also be held at Telford on Saturday 25th July 10.00am – 2.00pm and Wednesday 29th July 4.00pm – 8.00pm.
