Do you want to work for a global iconic food brand that is transforming its UK business?

Job Description

Do you want to be part of a culture that is informal, self-deprecating, fun and inclusive?

We are looking for a Development Technologist to join a growing new food team, based in London. This is a new and evolving role as the UK team is established and will report into and work closely with the Food Development Director.

You will be responsible for managing the online approval process used for all requests for new suppliers, new products, packaging changes and promotions. Day to day you will track the status of all requests, liaising with both suppliers and international colleagues to ensure these are progressed in alignment with NPD timelines. You will upload product specifications provided by suppliers and follow up outstanding information required. You will attend internal NPD meetings, working on the NPD pipeline calendar and providing updates on the progress of requests. You will also work on NPD projects to drive improved product quality and develop new menu concepts.

You will need to be highly organised with attention to detail and the ability to work independently. We are looking for a good influencer, who is confident in picking up the phone and tenacious in following up all requests.

Ideally you will have a Food Science background with an understanding of food manufacturing, nutritional and legal requirements. The role will involve some travel to suppliers in the UK and Europe. The role would suit a graduate with relevant placement experience or a more experienced technologist who is keen to join a business with great opportunities to progress. It's a growing team so there's plenty of scope to succeed for the right individual.
