Job Description

You might be reading this advert because you need a new position, or you may just want a fresh challenge. Ready for a step up, sideways or even down! Whatever your reasons, you should know this business is bucking the recent trend of the Brexit breakdown and the recent nervousness many manufacturers are experiencing.

Instead, they're investing millions into their New Product Development strategy as well as the technology to advance the production processes.

We might not see this kind of opportunity too often in the next 18-24 months.

So, why should they invest in you? Well, your previous and current development work will speak for itself - the results should be clear for all to see. Aside from product launches including first to market and EPD that have your signature all over them, we want a senior authority in the kitchen here to take real advantage of the extra resources available.

The business has the capacity to take the revenue past £100m and this year the projections will see growth of more than 30%. Couple this with the headroom available, we really do have a great platform for a Development Chef that wants to take their career by the scruff of the neck here.

Innovation, creativity, consumer insights and energy for your category aren't simply buzzwords to you, they should be genuine adjectives that personify you in the NPD team. The manufacturer works with core and premium retailers producing savoury pies, mini-bites, pastries and quiche products that receive plaudits throughout the industry. Be the reason they continue to do so!

Do you want a piece of this pie? Then get the meat on your CV, send it to me and let's get talking.
