Great opportunity to join a company with a real employee focused culture
As NPD Technologist you will be managing both NPD and EPD projects from concept to launch. This will involve working with both your marketing colleagues and retail customers to interpret product briefs then develop recipes, benchmark products and trial products in the factory. You'll be handling a mix of both branded and customer own label development projects. This will involve trouble shooting issues with scale up in the factory, working closely with production teams. You'll be supported by an excellent Technical Team managing product specifications, artwork and packaging.
There's a clear sense of pride in the company when you visit. People tend to stay here for the long-term as they are well looked after and the company really invests back into the business. Factory Teams are really proud of the products made here and love to be involved in new product development and innovations in the factory. The company regularly invests in the latest technologies to keep them at the cutting edge.
There's an exciting innovation pipeline ahead and this position is an important part of the team delivering it. You'll report directly into the Head of NPD and get the chance to work on a range of interesting projects. Ideally you will have worked within a fast-paced added value chilled environment - ready meals, food to go, bakery and meat experience would all work well here.
The company offers really competitive benefits at all levels (not just the Senior Team) and provides training to support your long-term career progression.
If you are looking for a company where you can see yourself being a key part of its long-term future, you should look into this.
