South East and London

REF: FTL895719b

Apply for this position

High growth, award winning start-up food business wants to hire you.

Having secured a multi-million pound investment fund, this award winning plant based food business is building a team to work in their brand new, still being built, state of the art Innovation Centre in West London. The R&D Scientist will be integral to their continued success.

Relatively young, considering the plaudits and accolades their winning, our client seeks an R&D Scientist to join a small yet high achieving team. They’re not your average food business. For one, they’re working with plant-based products for meat lovers who want an alternative without the lecture. Secondly, they don’t hang about… I already said the team was small, because the company is young, so you are joining them at the perfect time. In time to make a difference, a notable contribution and an impact in a category that isn’t a trend anymore, it’s a movement!

As the R&D Scientist you’ll come with the relevant qualifications of course (PHD in Food Science, Chemistry or Engineering) and a deep-rooted love for plant-based food design (pun intended). Experience in this area, researching food development is key as you’ll take the lead here. There might not be many of you out there, but then, there aren’t many opportunities like this one either.

Working with a cracking team and reporting to the Head of Innovation in a shiny new Innovation Centre, you’ll want for nothing. Everything is being set-up to afford you the best chance to make waves in this ever-growing category, like no-where else.

You’ll lead on quality, texture, taste as you partner with Universities, industry experts and consultants as you drive laboratory experiments developing new applications for plant-based proteins. Whilst you do this, you and the team keep your eyes peeled for market trends as you direct the company’s innovation strategy (there’s expenses and a budget for this).

There’s not much more I can tell you right now… they are making such a positive impact, as a group of hungry, dedicated and fun yet serious start-up professionals, that you’ll not just take great satisfaction in your work within this team. I nearly forgot, to go with a good salary and amazing place of work your also given shares, a stake in the business. The future is well and truly in your own hands here.

Get in touch as soon as you can so we can discuss all this in more detail.
