Is it possible for a job to make you hungry? It is when you’re working for popular vegan food makers The Very Good Butchers.
The Victoria-based company is opening a massive production facility near Rupert Skytrain Station in 2021. To fill production technician roles at their new Vancouver facility, the company is holding a Virtual Job Fair on January 21 and 28.
“We are looking for passionate and enthusiastic people about the plant-based movement – that bring that caring energy and transfer it into the delicious products we make,” said Mitchell Scott, co-founder and CEO of The Very Good Butchers.
“You don’t need to be vegan to apply. While we’re a vegan company, we’re all about diversity and inclusion and respect everyone’s own personal lifestyle choices. We want people who share our same company core values.”
The Rupert Facility will have 14,000-sq-ft of food production facilities and 13,500-sq-ft of refrigerated warehouse space. Production technicians hired during the Virtual Job Fair will be creating a range of products there for sale online and in-store.
The Very Good Butchers describe themselves as being “on a mission to show that making good choices doesn’t mean sacrificing flavour.”
“We want to make plant-based eating as approachable, nutritious and delicious as possible by creating food that’s Very Good for people, animals and the planet (while having a little fun along the way),” said Scott.
Some of the company’s famed offerings include The Very Good Burger, Very Good Taco Stuff’er, BBQ Pulled Jackfruit, and Smokin’ Bangers.
The Very Good Butchers’ Virtual Job Fair is taking place on January 21 and January 28 from 11 am to 3 pm. People interested in becoming a Production Technician can register for 30-minute interview time slots.
“A virtual job fair is a perfect opportunity to meet our hiring managers,” explained Scott.
“Not only will you get face-to-face time with the leaders in our company, but you will learn more about the jobs we have to offer. We are a growing company, and we are excited to continue to grow our team with individuals who align with our mission and vision.”
Perks and benefits of working with The Good Butchers include competitive salary, extended health and dental, stock options, product discounts, swag, annual company bonuses and more. Plus the company puts an emphasis on professional development for its employees as well as a work-life balance.
The Very Good Butchers are having keeping busy in Vancouver as they are also opening a huge flagship location in Mount Pleasant. Tentatively set to open in summer 2021, the flagship will be a mixed-use space, including production, a restaurant and butcher shop, R&D, office space, and a test kitchen.
“The Mount Pleasant facility is going to be very cool,” said Scott. “The public will get to enjoy a brewpub vibe where customers will be able to sit down and enjoy a burger and beer. Meanwhile, behind a big glass wall, they’ll see that burger being made. We’ll have a full selection of meats and cheeses in the deli as well as some grab and go food.”
