Can you bring food to life just by talking about ingredients, even before you've cooked?! This role is different to anything you have read before...

Job Description

You might be a Development Chef already working for respected retailers, bringing cutting edge food trends to the shelves of the UK supermarkets. OR, you might be a Chef currently working within one of the country's coolest, trailblazing restaurants, looking for a new challenge that pulls on your culinary flair and creativity. Either way, this role is worth your attention.

This position has you sitting between the Product Developers and Commercial team, creating recipes using the products available from the shelves and food hall of this premium retailer. Creating ideas in keeping with the season, culture and fashion of current food trends - it's your job to bring inspiring recipe content to the on-pack, point of sale, social media channels, publications and digital outlets within stores. You'll offer hints and tips that bring recipes to life and promote the quality and versatility of the extensive food range available to the customers.

In this role you will bring your genuine flair to life. The ideas are completely yours, but you will get input and support from the peers you work amongst. A natural ability to bring together international influences as well as regional elements from the UK is a must here. You are a creative Chef with a diverse range of experiences from street food culture to Michelin star fine dine menus. You will also enjoy the stylistic values of presentation. A keen eye for design and the ability to use photography, along with editorial copy in bringing ideas to life will be a key element of you work here.

If you have had your ideas and work published we want to hear all about it. If you've encouraged the weekend warriors to don an apron and fire up the stoves then you need to be considering this role as your calling!

This is exciting and engaging for a Chef, on so many levels, and due to the business responsible for this opportunity, you have to be on-point. Professional, presentable and well informed on all things food is what you are all about.
