Customer Technical Manager - Hampshire
£50,000 - £70,000 GBP per annum
REF: DAC895884Apply for this position
Take your place in this well invested Technical function to help underpin solid commercial success in a Customer focused role.
This newly created role is great evidence in a business that invests heavily in its technical function – as the Technical Director explained to me the CEO is a real champion of a ‘best in class’ Technical function. As such they have created this new Customer Technical Manager role that will bolster the existing technical team with a particular category of customers. Technical has a strong voice in the business and has had £multi millions signed off in capital expenditure.
So technically they are solid. Commercially they have delivered some outstanding results. This means you will have a stable platform to concentrate on doing your job.
Which will be working with a range of customers. And of course, with this being food manufacturing not everything goes to plan. Particularly when you are looking at product lines across multiple factories. However, you will have a good factory and central compliance team behind you so you can concentrate without distraction on being the key interface between the complex manufacturing units and the customer (the specific customers will be shared with you on application).
A food science or related degree will be useful. However, what is critical is you will need a technical background within food manufacturing. But perhaps you are starting to question the daily fire fighting and want to help guide a customer and have higher level conversations, if so, this would be a good one to apply to today.
One last thing, it is on the South Coast. I am slightly biased but have spent a lot of time there but there is a lot of be said about being able to go for a stroll, or swim, or sail (or surf!) on the beach before you start or after you finish your work day. Even better, the company will offer relocation support to help you fulfil this if it has been a long desire for you. Finally, one day home working is offered too, so even more flexibility if you need to get your beach fix.
