Process Operator



Hertogenbosch, Netherlands
Posted on Thursday, May 11, 2023

Did you know that the largest orange peel factory in Europe has opened in the city of ‘s-Hertogenbosch? For our “closed” part of the factory we are looking for Process Operators who want to make the difference together with us. Have you always wanted to work for a unique and sustainable organization? Read on quickly!


Together with your direct colleagues you are responsible for operating our production lines in the factory. You like to manage the process safely and efficiently. You manage the unit operations on a daily basis and coordinate them. Examples include: a distillation column, process vessels, dryers, a scrubber and a number of other utilities. You work partly in the field and partly in the control room. The way of working in our factory is still fairly new, so new solutions can also be devised. That is why you can switch quickly if a problem arises like no other.

Of course we have a more extensive job profile. But now we just wanted your attention. Did it work?

Why you want to pioneer with us.

In addition to a nice workplace where diversity, inclusivity and openness are the norm, a delicious (vegan) soup will be ready daily in our lunch room (Chez Peel), fresh fruit is plentiful and a nice-smelling orange factory awaits you. In addition:

Competitive salary

Starting on June 1, 2023 is preferred, but earlier or later is also possible

Starting contract of 12 months, extend to an indefinite period if functioning properly

Retirementplan, annual 1.5% inflation adjustment in accordance with Pioneers Guide

A telephone allowance of 20 euros per month

Annual team outings, do-mi drinks and a daily joint lunch

Travel allowance

25 vacation days based on 40-hour working week and 8% holiday pay

Fresh fruit and unlimited orange juice

The possibility to follow additional education and/or courses.

About PeelPioneers

We are the sustainable peel farmer of the 21st century. Instead of being incinerated into waste, we give orange peels a second life: we extract raw materials from the peel that we process into food ingredients. Our new factory in ‘s-Hertogenbosch has a production capacity of 50,000 kg of peels per day. And we are proud of that. Together with about 40 other colleagues you pioneer, on the way to a sustainable and circular future.

We have now conquered the Netherlands, but our ambitions do not stop there. We are already looking at opportunities abroad. This Plant will be the role model for the future production locations. And you can experience and set up this trial-and-error phase up close. The result is high-quality food ingredients that impress. There is a great demand for circular ingredients and we can offer them!

The ingredients you’ll need

  • You are in possession of a process operator B or C diploma.
  • You know how to handle hazardous and flammable substances in a food environment.
  • Hygiene and safety are your top priority. After all, you will be working in an orange factory.
