Production employee

Do you want to reduce your ecological footprint but still keep size 42? Are you looking for a job where you can really make a difference? And will you help convert the orange peels into circular ingredients? Then apply now at PeelPioneers as a Production employee!

Tasks & Responsibilities

We start the morning with a cup of coffee or tea and then discuss the week/day with the foreman who is on duty at that time. Then we start up the machines together. While the machines are warming up, the first truck arrives with 70 containers full of orange peels. Because safety is of great importance and everyone has to keep their attention, there is a rotation every hour. Variety is just as nice.

Lunch time! Between 12:00 and 1:00 pm, a hot soup and fresh orange juice will be waiting for you in our lunch room. Here you can warm up, chat with other colleagues or withdraw yourself. We try to have lunch together (that’s just as cozy as alone).

In particular, you produce the products essential oils, orange cubes and animal feed. You are responsible for the storage and labeling of these products. In addition, you signal when container(s) with raw materials and/or end products must be exchanged.

You, of course, keep the workplace clean and comply with the work and safety instructions when performing the work. Together with your colleagues, you are ultimately responsible for the cleaning of, among other things, the process installation and the production location. We work under the standard hygiene and safety.

About PeelPioneers

We are the sustainable peel farmer of the 21st century. Instead of being incinerated into waste, we give orange peels a second life: we extract raw materials from the peel that we process into food ingredients.

Together with about 40 other colleagues you pioneer, on the way to a sustainable and circular future.

You will work closely with the business team (Office Manager, Finance Controller, and Commercial Director) – as we don’t have departments in our organization – where you will have the freedom to take initiative and make an impact.

Every day is different, and the ability to adapt quickly makes the work enjoyable and challenging. At PeelPioneers, we have a flat organizational structure, allowing you to easily approach anyone in our open workspace. Check out our company video for a sneak peek.
