Job Description

An ideal opportunity for an ambitious Development professional who is ready for their next step. Our client is looking for the following skill-set:-

  • Chilled Food Development experience
  • Man Management
  • Category Management
  • Future Planning - "where are we going next?"

This is a customer focused role, and you will have an excellent support base within the development team. As long as you can delegate then this is a wide functioning opportunity where you will have your fingers in many pies across the development department!

If you are keen to join a business that is going places and have the ambition to grow your skill set then this could be of interest to you.

Working with an exciting product base, there is plenty of scope for the real foodie to influence the retail market.

This is a logical next step for a Senior Development professional who is looking for new challenges. We won't lie - this is a fast-paced environment. You will already have had experience of working in large manufacturing sites, juggling a number of projects at any one time. Our client is looking for someone who has already worked with a few of the major retailers and will be able to demonstrate a thorough understanding of the demands of the customer.

The fundamental part of this role is to be able to pass on your passion for food products to your team and take the business forward to pastures new - as well as putting a spin on existing products.

If you have that drive and vision to step up to a new role where your expertise will be appreciated from day one, then apply today.
