Takeaway a slice of the action with a new Product Developer role here.

This business is winning awards, market share, and plaudits for the work it is doing within the UK QSR sector. A great brand that is still growing and pushing some of the old guards. They now seek the final piece of the puzzle to complete their UK domination. YOU.

As a Developer within the food world already you will probably have an idea of what’s hot and what’s coming. The obesity agenda is big (pun intended) and the HFSS reduction strategy is a priority for this business. Wouldn’t it be great to work in a business that’s providing delicious comfort food, a treat any night of the week that doesn’t put your health at risk?!

We want you to bring your flair for flavour and taste to this expanding brand of QSR. As a Research and Development Chef or Technologist you know how to get your hands dirty, immersing yourself with the creativity and variety of ingredients available to you. Taking the ideas on a journey of development, costing, trials and launch.

You will already have worked with suppliers, on specs and samples. You’ll know what is involved within the stage-gate processes and scaling of core ingredient and product elements. We want you to manage the test kitchen as your own personal lab of innovation and creativity.

Reporting into the UK R&D lead, you’ll review existing ranges and benchmark against the market and your competitors. Knowledge of this, and the ability to present ideas to an expectant yet engaging leadership team is wanted here, please.

You’ll have this opportunity as maybe your second or third move in the world of Food Development. Coming from a hands-on foodie Technologist or Dev Chef position already, we see this as the launch pad into a career with a brand that has thrived within these dark and uncertain times. If you’re keen to know more and you have the track record to justify consideration in this Development team, then please get your details to us ASAP.
