Job Description

If you're reading this advert you are either serious or curious about your next career move. Either way, it's worth your time to consider this opportunity as the next step for your personal development as a New Product Development Chef.

As a Development Chef, manufacturing for retailers, you've already overcome major obstacles such as production restrictions, stage and gate processes/challenges, budgetary and commercial constraints. And that's all after the biggest obstacle of all; actually getting into the sector of New Product Development in the first place! Well now it's going to be that bit simpler and more rewarding.

Our client is a market-leading business (no, really - they are right up there in nearly all chilled food categories) who has been working with the nation's best retailers for decades. They now have the chance for an enthusiastic and imaginative Development Chef to join their teams in London producing Food To Go and Ready Meal products. It's without doubt an opportunity that should be seriously considered if you truly want to get your ideas onto the shelves of the country's best stores! The career progression is unrivalled in the UK too as the business has sites throughout the land, meaning if you want to move categories or even counties in time to come, the options are available.

This role might not be right, if you don't have a complete appreciation of what it takes to get Blue Sky food concepts through to launch, as the position requires you to get fully involved from day one. Strong presentation skills along with a refined palette and an eye for the latest food trends are absolute must-haves.

We are keen to meet with inspiring and interesting Development Chefs that can bring a professional work attitude along with personality and creativity. Send your CV and pick up the phone and let's see if this is a bold new move for you.
