Dough you knead a chance to rise to the top? Come get a pizza this…

As a Development Chef for this business you are joining a company that works with major retailers and branded business, producing chilled food products under license. Its an exciting team to join and to be part of a major player in the market.

If you are looking for more opportunities, having already achieved some experience and success within New Product Development for a manufacturer or grocery retailer in the UK, this is a great next step. The reasons being plenty, but here are just a handful...

  • Market leading business in over 80% of the categories they manufacture for.
  • Collaborative working relationships with key UK retailers such as Waitrose and J.Sainsbury's
  • Excellent, state of the art kitchen facilities
  • Structured succession planning to advance your career

The business wants a creative chef, that has culinary exploration running through your veins. Can you bring trends and trail blazing ideas to recipes? Do you stay on top of the food scene, across all channels, from fine dining, mass catering to street food? Does developing a range and tweaking classic, best sellers, motivate you? We certainly hope so, as this will enable you to enlist all the above so your creative flair and commercial qualities are fully utilised.

The need for NPD experience, is a must here (even if only brief so far). But, cross category experience will be considered, especially if you can demonstrate a record of working well with both internal and external stakeholders. Having your ideas go from blue sky, through critical paths, to a successful launch.

For immediate consideration and more detail to the above, submit your CV, and we'll get this ball rolling for you.
