Renowned Pie Business Seeks Finance Manager

Jones Pies was started in the back of a Yorkshire butchers shop in 1988 and since then has gone on to be renowned for its fantastic range of pork pies, pies, sausage rolls and pasties.

Now manufacturing 60,000 pies per week, Jones Pies is a complex multi transactional business that has a wide spread of small customers. They sell their fantastic range of pork pies, pies, sausage rolls and pasties to a variety of different customers which include supermarkets, sports clubs, garage forecourts and the food service industry.

The business has a great reputation and has grown in the best way possible, through word of mouth. People ate their pies, loved them and told someone else – who in turn tasted them, loved them and told someone else. Other shops started to sell Jones Pies and combining this with winning awards after awards, the business has grown from strength to strength. Based in Huddersfield, a team of skilled bakers and pie makers work six days a week to make sure the quality of the products continue, and they remain ahead of their competitors. Every pie is hand crafted using the best meat and best of local ingredients and is delivered fresh daily.

At Jones Pies we stay true to the good old fashioned ways of making a great pie. Every pie is hand crafted using the best meat and the best of local ingredients – from Ossett Ale in our steak and ale pies to Sheperds Purse Yorkshire Blue in our pork pie with cheese!
