Being your Burton's Best 

A great career for all our SMART cookies!
burton's biscuits culture and values

Culture and Values

Our culture and the way we treat each other is really important to us. That’s why we have developed 4 four cultural values that guide us in the way we interact with each other and our customers. They help us to focus on developing an amazing place to work for all of our colleagues. Our cultural values also describe our behavioural expectations so everyone is clear on what they need to do to realise a rewarding career at Burton's Biscuits.  We are very focused on making sure everyone understand the part they play in our success and knows how to support others so we can all win together.

We love to have fun here at Burton’s which is why each site has their own personalised calendar of events focusing on health & wellbeing, raising awareness, charity events and it always includes lots of fun! There is something for everyone to get involved in, see what we have been getting up to recently below!

Learning and Development

Baking some of the nation’s favourite biscuit brands is pretty great, but how we do that is just as important. For that reason we created a set of behaviours – a benchmark that everyone can measure against and can see how they’re doing. And that’s not all…

We want to help you build your career as a smart cookie. That includes everything from regular conversations with your manager to courses, videos, books and audio books all on our e-learning site.

Nathan Lloyd-Samuel
Hello, I am Nathan and I attended the SMART Manager training course. There were two main aspects from the course that I have fully taken on board. Firstly, the important of listening, this is not just the words that are spoken but also the deep listening when taking into account inflections within the voice and also body language. This has given me a deeper understanding of my teams and allows me to understand the drivers and the needs of my team. This has been beneficial when having to steer the team through some challenging performance issues. Secondly the planning of conversations and understanding objectives of the conversation. This has allowed me to hold really great conversations with team members that have been meaningful from both their perspective and mine, in having open, honest and fact based discussions.

Carl Motler
Hello, I am Carl Motler and I am the Engineering Manager at the Blackpool Bakery. I started at Burton’s in 1988 as an apprentice wrapping machine fitter and then went onto training on the mechanical aspect of the Bakery. After several years I had the opportunity to add electric string to my bow and went back to college to complete a HNC in electrical & electronic engineering. I continued working on the tools until 2007 when I decided to take a break from Burton’s to pursue other things however I loved working at Burton’s so decided to come back a year later as an Engineering shift manager. It was in this role I started learning real new skills in the form of Management over the next few year I completed my level 5 management skills which helped set me up with my current role.

National Account Manager
Grace Lloyd
Hi I’m Grace, I started as a Graduate in the international team, focussing on project management before moving onto more of a commercial and customer focused role. I then joined the Tesco team as a national account executive, which I have now been doing for 8 months. There are so many schemes, training programmes and mentoring opportunities at Burton’s, and these span across both professional training but also personal development that can be taken away from the day job. Being able to draw upon these programmes is really useful and has enabled me to develop into a role which I love and enjoy.
