Ready for a new challenge in NPD? Then read on..
Do you have an unlimited supply of creative energy and drive?
Are you a natural manager?
Do you love working closely with your customer?
Is all your experience within NPD in the food manufacturing / food retail industry?
If you have answered "yes" to the above then you are the sort of person that we would like to speak with!
Our client is looking for a leader amongst NPD professionals. You will already be in a development role with some management experience under your belt. You have possibly been in a Senior Development Technologist or Junior Development Manager position and you have a fine portfolio of products on the shelf that show your ability to take a product from concept through to launch.
Part of this role is to be a specialist in market trends. You take hours in the supermarket doing your shopping as you love to see what is new out there!
Our client is a firm believer in research, so you will find yourself on safari in local supermarkets, major cities, or if you're lucky, to foreign climes! Knowledge of current flavours and ingredients are key to being able to create the next new top seller.
Our client is a very successful, very busy manufacturer. As Product Manager you will be responsible for overseeing the development of a number of products - juggling many balls at once. You will have in-depth knowledge of where each product is up to in the critical path / gate process so that your customer will use you as a source of knowledge and you will be the "go-to" person for any questions from the factory / technical team.
In order to develop new ideas, you must have an in-depth knowledge of food science - ideally you will have qualifications in this discipline.
So, if you are looking for your next opportunity then don't hesitate to send in your CV - we look forward to hearing from you!
