Category: New Product Development

Reference: RLP894249

Job Description

Do you get a real buzz from developing market-leading new products and have a clear passion for food?

Here you'll be managing your own NPD projects from concept stage through to product launch. You'll have direct contact with major retail customers - presenting your ideas, working through production trials to create that WOW product your customers and consumers love.

No two days are the same and you certainly won't be bored. You'll be juggling a number of projects with varying and often challenging deadlines. You'll need to come up with creative solutions to any problems that arise through the development process and understand how to push manufacturing capabilities to deliver that commercially successful product. This will involve your fantastic influencing skills and ability to work collaboratively with your production colleagues.

You don't need asking to research the latest food trends - it's already a passion of yours - whether it's trying the latest restaurant or pop-up, researching the internet or attending trade shows.

You're probably doing well in your current role - so why move here?

  • The role will give you direct customer contact with leading retailers and the chance to build up your reputation with them to further your career

  • You'll be working alongside really top talent in the industry and be mentored by them

  • You'll own your own projects from concept to launch- not have to hand them over (or pick them up!) part-way through

  • Where some food businesses are struggling, here there is a clear strategy to take this already successful company through its next stage of growth and you can be an integral part of that
