Kornel Kovacs, Production Operative

“I started working for Taste Original a couple of years ago, when I applied for a job with Challenge-trg Recruitment, and was fortunate enough to get this opportunity. Just when I started working, I learnt about a role in Taste Original’s seasoning room and knew it was meant for me. I applied and got through. I am so glad I made this decision as I got to work with some very helpful and nice people here. My boss and supervisors are great and really supportive. 5 years down the road and I have already started working full-time, and there is no looking back for me.”

Ivan Nykodym, Production Operative

“During my initial stint with Challenge-trg Recruitment previously, I received full training for my meat prep role, which helped me get a job at Taste Original. I enjoy working here, the pay rates are good, with great potential to progress and excel. I got to learn new skills on the way, even if those were outside of my work profile, computer skills, communication skills with site auditors explaining to them the importance of day-to-day payroll procedures, just to name a few. I feel more confident working here and see a promising future for myself at Taste Original.”

Ivo Lliev, Production Operative

“What started as a work experience at Challenge-trg Recruitment, transgressed into working full-time in the meat prep and batching department with Taste Original. Friendly and helpful colleagues, tremendous support and guidance has made my work journey smooth and also helped to increase my skills set gradually.”

Neil Mustafova, Production Operative

“I got a job in Taste Original’s low risk site in 2020 through Challenge-trg Recruitment and I am happily working with them even today. I received full-length training and support for my role as a paperwork operator. I am really grateful for this opportunity.”

Levente Sarkadi, Production Operative

“I started work atChallenge-trg Recruitment in September 2020 and informed them about my inclination to work in low risk. The agency did me a favour and I began my work journey at Taste Original in the department of my choice. I had a smooth induction wherein I was explained all the relevant information necessary before I entered the factory. After only a month I was offered training as a labeller operator, which I successfully completed. I have been working full-time here at Taste Original since November 2020 and I have only good experiences to share. Friendly staff, helpful and supportive team members and detailed training has made my work journey at Taste Original as smooth as I wanted it to be.”
