Food shopping with you always takes ages as you can't help checking out all the new lines...

Job Description

Do you dream of working for a food manufacturer who fervently believes in the value of NPD? Our client supports the whole Development department: investing in research, travel, safaris, eating out - all with the aim to keep itself ahead of the competition.

If you are the sort of person who never switches off, not in a bad way, but if food is your hobby as well as your career choice, then we would love to talk to you. You actually love shopping for food, if you were asked what your hobbies are they would include eating out, cooking, reading cookery books, watching cookery shows and so on. This is your opportunity to work with a team of like-minded individuals. Food "anoraks" and proud of it!

Our client is looking for an experienced Development Technologist - with at least two years of being in a similar role.

It's not enough to love food, I'm afraid. We will be looking for individuals who have food qualifications and experience of working within NPD - ideally on products for the major retailers.

You are very aware of what is going on in the food industry - what the current eating trends are, ingredient combinations, legal implications, etc.

We also need someone who is factory savvy. It's easy to create fantastic, on-trend, delicious products but if they can't be produced in the factory then you've only done half a job. This role is looking for someone to be the middleman between the innovation side and the factory side. You will get full ownership of the product from concept to launch, so we need you to be confident in leading the process and managing the critical path.

If you like the sound of the above and would like to be considered for this role, then send in your CV today - we will be happy to talk!
