Job Description

If you have at least one year's experience within a food manufacturing development kitchen then this is certainly something that could be of interest.

Our client is classed as one of the major suppliers to the key retailers for products in its discipline. You would be joining an established, successful business that is highly regarded within the food industry for its high quality, innovative and delicious products.

Your job, if you are successful, will be to work in the Development Kitchen with the development team, including some talented Chefs to contribute to the creation of outstanding new products.

At first this will involve a degree of repeat sample making, raw ingredient collection and packing products to be shipped for testing by the customer, but prove your food knowledge, your creative skills and the world is your oyster!

Ideally, you will have a qualification in food. You will be able to demonstrate an excellent understanding of the science of food and the trends that are going on in the food world.

You will be passionate about all things to do with food. When you can afford it, you eat out. When you go to the supermarket you spend hours looking at all of the new products. You read the food magazines, you watch the food programmes. Basically - cut you in half and it says "I LOVE FOOD!" right through your middle!

So, if you are looking to take the next step in your career and you have already got some experience in a similar role then we would love to hear from you.
