Development Chef, Food Retailer, Hertfordshire
Location: East Anglia
County / State: Hertfordshire
Job type: Permanent
Consultant: Frank Lomas
Start date: Asap
Salary: £35,000 - £45,000 per annum plus Car and Benefits Package
Have the inside track within a leading UK retailer working on a variety of food categories. A Development Chef that can work on wraps to ready meals.
So, you've been working as a Development Chef for a little while now, which has offered you some exciting briefs resulting in successful new product launches. Job done and box ticked, but what's next? Are you settled, secure and safe in your current role? You might not be reading this if you were 100% happy right? This role here could be the one that answers your new needs and has you working not just multiple briefs but assorted food categories simultaneously!
A common concern for some New Product Development Chefs is that they want to move around categories as they used to sections within the restaurant. This allows you to mix up your skills and provide a variety of work for your portfolio. Who wants to only ever work salads, soups or one brand forever? This position is the perfect answer if you have thought this way. The role has you split your working week between the client's site in Hertfordshire two days, whilst the other three are on site around the country for your employer.
Working on all categories from Ready Meals, Food-To-Go to Desserts results in you sharing consumer insight and trend analysis from the customer, cascading through your business for the relevant NPD team. The sites are mostly spread between the East Midlands and South East, so a company car will be provided for you.
The role is the perfect mix for a Development Chef confident in his or her ability to work across a number of trends, food styles and customer demographics.
Your previous successes within NPD launches will have been the perfect preparation for this role, so if you are interested, call me and send your CV for immediate consideration.
