Development Chef, Premium Food Retailer, London

Location: South East and London

County / State: London

Category: Development Chefs

Reference: FTL894060

Consultant: Frank Lomas

Start date: Asap

Salary: £30,000 - £36,000 per annum


A leading manufacturer of the nation's best loved foods is adding to its Development Chef teams.

Job Description

If you are a professional and highly skilled Chef seeking the chance to move into a new environment, whilst working with some of the country's best retailers, this could be an ideal new adventure.

We are offering you the chance to have your Chilled Ready Meal products available on some of the most coveted supermarket shelves in Britain. IF you have worked within NPD already and understand the complexities and the rewards from creating from scratch brand new meal ideas for the nation's population we definitely want to hear from you.

If on the other hand, you haven't yet had the chance to experience a professional development kitchen within manufacturing for the major retailers; this opportunity could still be open to you. No time wasters though. IF your only motivation is to get 'better working hours' and you don't have the patience and creativity to take an idea and run with it, for what could be months in the creation, planning and execution, this won't be right. You have to have a genuine passion for food, high-end ingredients and cutting edge, on-trend recipes in order to flourish here.

This role offers you a chance to take the Michelin or multiple-rosette experiences gained from restaurant service and bring them into a Development kitchen. Creating meals that are on-trend and take inspiration from a number of exciting sources when it comes to food is a necessity. Your inquisitive nature when it comes to flavour profiles, cooking techniques and combining seasonal ingredients will be put to the test as a Development Chef here and it must be in your DNA if you are to get through the interview alone.

Development Chefs with a track record of bringing classics with modern twists to the masses should sit up and take notice here. Chefs that have excelled at the highest level of restaurants will also want to consider this as a long-term and wise job option.

Send us your details, or call and have a conversation if the CV needs work. Either way, let's get started on your next, and most important career move.
