As ‘the UK’s No. 1 Bakery Brand’ we have been baking bread since 1876. Today, we supply over 18,000 retail customers from 11 bakeries and 15 depots, producing a range of over 70 products.

As a Personal Assistant, you’ll be the backbone of our Board members’ day-to-day activities. Your role is pivotal in ensuring that their time is optimised, and their administrative tasks are handled with precision and care.

The Recipe

You’ll be supporting three of our Board members based in our Head Office in Bolton.

We’re an informal and non-hierarchical business and we’re looking for someone with the same approach. You’ll be the kind of person who gets on with and can relate to everyone regardless of the role they do. High standards will be important to you and the skill to anticipate our Boards’s needs, getting them to where they need to be with the right information to hand. Making their lives easier by using your initiative to do some of the thinking ahead.

We’re looking for a master of organisation to be the secret sauce behind our Board’s seamless operations. Managing calendars, inboxes, scheduling meetings, events and travel. Interacting with internal teams, customers and regular interaction with the Warburton family. You’ll be confident coordinating Board papers, conducting research, collecting and analysing data to prepare reports and documents. We aren’t looking for a ’gatekeeper’ but someone who’s approachable and can find flexibility in our Board’s schedule.

There’s some flexibility to work from home but the team would like to have you around when they’re in the office. Fridays tend to be quieter so there’s usually an opportunity to work remotely.

There’ll be plenty of variety and interesting activities to keep you engaged and busy!

Essential Ingredients

  • Proven experience as a PA supporting Board-level executives
  • Exceptional organisational skills and impeccable attention to detail
  • High proficiency in MS Office
  • Excellent verbal and written communication skills
  • Discretion and confidentiality of the highest degree
  • A proactive approach to problem-solving with strong decision-making capability
  • Flexibility and adaptability to juggle a range of different tasks
  • An approachable low-ego personality with high emotional intelligence

Extra Dough

You’ll want to know what your bread is worth:

  • Base salary and benefits
  • A slice of the annual profits
  • Family time is important to us so you’ll receive 25 days’ holiday with the option to purchase a further 5 days’ leave.
  • Award winning company matched pension scheme
  • Life assurance
  • Warburtons products you’ll love along with deals and retail discounts for you and the family through our Extra Dough website
  • Continued investment in your personal development
  • Fully stocked kitchens filled with our delicious products for you to enjoy with your daily brew!
  • Support for your health and wellbeing: on-site gym, a comprehensive occupational health service, access to free physiotherapy, 24/7 access to online GP service plus a confidential helpline for practical advice should you need it.

About us:

As a sixth-generation family company, we not only value our rich heritage but also embrace innovation across our 11 bakeries and 17 depots nationwide. Our extensive range includes over 70 products, catering to diverse dietary needs including gluten and wheat-free options. With a dedicated family of 5,000 colleagues, at Warburtons, family values and pride in our work are essential ingredients to our success.

We respect and value difference. We look to create an inclusive workplace that promotes and values diversity. Companies that are diverse in age, gender identity, race, religion, sexual orientation, physical or mental ability, ethnicity, or any other aspect which makes them unique, are proven to be better companies. More importantly, creating an environment where everyone, from any background, can do their best work, is the right thing to do.
