Opportunity for a bakery specialist to join a market-leading company in growth.
Here you’ll be leading the NPD and Process Teams across two bakery manufacturing sites producing branded and own label products.
Joining a well-invested company in growth, you’ll be a key player in delivering the business strategy. They have an ambitious yet friendly and supportive team and exciting yet achievable plans to develop the business further.
You will be leading the teams responsible for the delivery of all NPD and EPD briefs through the gate system from concept to launch. You’ll be part of the senior leadership team, working cross-functionally to drive CI / Process Improvement projects.
We are looking for someone with great leadership skills, who will coach, mentor and develop their team. An individual who will influence and engage with customers, suppliers and internal stakeholders. From a technical perspective, we are looking for a strong understanding of bakery ingredients functionality and a track record in driving process improvement projects in the factory. Innovation here will be largely about ingredients and process rather than creating brand new concepts from scratch – continuously looking at innovative ways to improve the product range and retain their competitive edge.
