Recruitment agency manager Paulius Martinkus believes he has the perfect incentive to help find 150 factory workers – a free sandwich.
Not that prospective employees will get the sandwich every day – only on a Friday.
Mr Martinkus has posted the job offer to social media sites offering anyone taking up the job “free hot drinks daily and a free sandwich each Friday”.
The workers are needed by the Thai food manufacturers CP Foods at their Fordham Road production centre in Newmarket.
Workers are also promised up to one hour fully paid lunch breaks, four day shift working (12 hours a day) with basic pay of £7.40 an hour and £9.25 overtime rate.
CP Foods is part of the CPF group owned by Thailand’s richest man, Dhanin Chearavanont.
The £4 million Suffolk factory, which produces microwaveable subs, sandwiches, baguettes and burgers under CP Foods’ Taste Inc brand, created over 100 jobs in the town when it was opened in 2013.
