Walkers Shortbread was established in 1898 and is now owned by third and fourth generation of the Walker family. Both generations work in key roles with the clear intention for the business to remain private and wholly family owned with the fifth generation also now involved. As one of Scotland's luxury food producing companies, we are delighted to advertise this exciting and rewarding opportunity to join Walkers Shortbread Ltd at our Aberlour and Elgin site.

Still very traditional in many ways our recipe remains the same today as it was 122 years ago. Our manufacturing plant has moved on leaps and bounds with 6 modern factories based in Aberlour and Elgin (North East Scotland).
