If you're a Chef whose career is in need of something fresh and tasty, then this role could develop into a lasting love affair.

Job Description

There's a food business situated between Norfolk and Lincolnshire that takes advantage of the wonderful produce available there. They add real value and creativity to the vegetable mixes and fruit they harvest, so that Buyers all over the UK and Continental Europe scream for it, to supply their customers. This business now wants another Development Chef to join its NPD team in continuing this great work.

As an experienced Chef you might be at a cross-roads in your career. Having worked in a variety of restaurants, contributing to a superb menu or two, perhaps winning awards or receiving numerous pats-on-the-back from appreciative diners, but it's not quite enough - not forever more at least. Instead, you're thinking a career within NPD will make full use of your culinary skills and add a new spice to your life. It may even give back a bit of that life due to the more "sociable" working hours. If this has already happened for you and you now seek the chance to work with a healthier balance of foods, that appeal to Gen-Z and its growing interest in nutrition, then this NPD team will want to hear from you too.

The employer has recently had serious investment from an international business and as such doors are being blown wide open. It's never been a better time to work within a Development Team in this category. The role includes international travel and plenty of customer face-time. Presenting your ideas and feeding back what the market is doing and what's on trend will mean you certainly won't be bored. You will be joining a company that takes health and nutrition seriously... adding depths of flavour and creative textures to the country's finest produce.

Put your computer skills to use right away and send us your CV. For more information on this opportunity you can call too and we can go over how you might fit this business.
