Production line operator
Hélène fancied a change of career so she studied for a Professional Qualification Certificate via a work-study arrangement to become a production line operator.
Job advert, temp work, permanent contract
For Hélène Leost, now a Laïta cheese production line operator at Ploudaniel (29), it all started with a job advert in the local newspaper. The recruitment process began at the employment bureau and ended, after an initial briefing with the company and a few tests, in the offer of a temporary position in order preparation and packing and finally a permanent position.
Qualified to supervise two cutting lines for Emmenthal cheeses, Hélène monitors the whole cutting process from A to Z, including packaging the portions. She’s been doing the job for a while, since studying for a professional qualification certificate with the company on a work-study basis. Dairy products, mechanics, hygiene, safety, etc., she gradually reinforced and broadened the knowledge she’d already acquired on the job.
A change of direction and a work schedule that allowed me to spend more time with my children were the triggers for my new career. The team spirit, the atmosphere and the opportunity to develop and progress in a company that listens did the rest.

A new direction
Before working in the agri-food industry and joining Laïta, Hélène thought long and hard about her decision: "I wanted a change of direction, a new job. I also wanted a work schedule with hours that were more compatible with my family life so I could be there for my two children. Here, the team spirit, the atmosphere and the opportunity to develop and progress in a company that listens did the rest, it confirmed my decision to join the company and stay here!"
Talking about Laïta
Drying tower operator
« What I like about Laïta is the trust they put in me and the autonomy I have. Working 3x8 shifts has its advantages and its drawbacks, but it’s easy to organise yourself because the schedule is set three months in advance. And there’s such a good atmosphere on site and among the team. »
R&D Project Leader
« Every project is different. I interface with customers all over the world, formulating and testing recipes to suit their requirements and holding discussions with different factory departments to set up production. There’s never a dull day! »
Project Leader - digital projects
« My role is to identify the needs of each sector in order to co-construct targeted solutions that meet their expectations. I take a collaborative approach with the staff and departments concerned, who contribute to the design, experimentation and deployment of solutions. »
