The Bread Factory | Recruitment film, London

Recruitment film and social media cut downs for The Bread Factory. Produced, filmed and edited by Dreaming Fish Productions.

The client and the project

The Bread Factory are a London based wholesale bakery, founded in 1993 by Gail Stephens, who specialise in a range of homemade pastries and all types of bread. Looking to expand and grow their team, in October 2021, they reached out to us in need of an engaging recruitment film which would showcase their talent, culture and career opportunities. Being big fans of bread and pastries ourselves, we jumped at the opportunity to help them on their video journey! After speaking to their team in more detail, we had a better understanding of their vision and the key messages they wanted to include. The tone of voice for this video had to be friendly, creative and passionate, highlighting the main things that The Bread Factory care about including: people, passion, innovation, quality and service.

With a secured brief in place, we got started on the production of this shoot. As there are so many job roles available at The Bread Factory (baker to driver, apprenticeships to warehouse etc) it was important for us to feature the different jobs in the recruitment video, to show diversity and variety. In doing so, we interviewed 8 people (chosen by The Bread Factory) with different roles and asked them what they loved about their jobs and The Bread Factory. This gave us plenty of honest and personal reviews of the company, in a friendly and passionate way.

Behind the scenes

Once the filming was done, we turned our attention to the photography! We snapped photos of the chefs making a range of tasty treats, focusing on those super close macro shots. How yummy does everything look?!👨‍🍳🥯🥨🧑‍🍳 🥐🍪🧁



The recruitment film and social edits

Having signed off the recruitment film, we got started on the individual job role focused social media cut downs. These cutdowns gave The Bread Factory’s recruitment team plenty of content to play with. These videos were later shared on their website and across their social media channels, helping attract more applicants!
