Job Description

As a Bakery specialist, you'll have in-depth knowledge and understanding of bakery ingredients and manufacturing processes. You'll love creating highly innovative, top quality products and take real pride in seeing your concepts on the supermarket shelves. You'll have been doing this long enough to understand what works both commercially and in the factory yet still have that drive to push the boundaries to perfect that wow product.

Here you'll have the chance to join a well-established food business about to embark on its next stage of growth. There is a clear strategy to significantly expand following recent major investment. This involves building on strong existing customer relationships and capitalising on new business opportunities. The company has a current range of high-quality, award-winning products and newly created manufacturing capacity with the latest technologies.

We're looking for an individual with a proven track record in supplying major UK retailers - taking innovative bakery projects from concept through factory trials to successful launch. You'll have passion and drive and be happy in a hands on role, leading a small team. You'll have a lot of autonomy and the ability to make quick business decisions as part of a talented and driven management team. Ideally you'll have worked in both large and small scale bakery operations and have built relationships with bakery ingredients suppliers.
