A commercially minded Development Chef or NPD Manager - You present and guide your colleagues and customers. It's so much more than the usual.....

Job Description

Read on if…

You’re a Development Chef considering the next level, or you're already in an NPD management position. You’ve cut your teeth in one or two categories perhaps. Be it Ready Meals, Food to Go, Foodservice or Desserts etc. It’s now time to seriously consider what’s next, and how much you can affect your customer’s food offering across the country.

This opportunity really only suits an NPD professional that has a commercial desire to lead the customer on the Innovation journey. Bringing new ideas to the table and not being afraid of them not always working. This company offers culinary solutions to the foodservice, manufacturing and retail sectors. You have a hand in nearly everything here. The position therefore gives you so much scope to develop new, improve upon existing and trial daring concepts across a range of categories due to the application of these food products.

Presenting your ideas and working closely with two National Account Managers that open doors and introduce you as the culinary genius of the company, is from our experience in this industry – the perfect balance. There are international colleagues in the Development teams who also collaborate with you in getting the flavour profiles, texturisation and application just right for the UK market.

The devil is in the detail of course, but simply put… we want to speak with creative thinkers within food manufacturing whose professionalism and entrepreneurial attitude towards recipe development and food design will be genuinely welcomed and embraced here. Working here will keep you busy, on your toes and informed on so many categories it could well be your last move for some time.
