Job Description

It's easy to say that you enjoy travelling, watching food programmes and eating out for the sake of your work, but if you are a true foodie then you would go as far as to say that you even love doing your weekly shop! You love walking down the aisles and spotting what is new - looking at original flavour combinations, packaging ideas and marketing techniques.

Any end gondola offering free samples of anything will see you eagerly queuing to have a taste! Food is your passion and you can't help but bring your work home with you - and on holiday with you too!

Our client is a market-leading manufacturer of high quality, delicious products that are down to the innovative, hardworking, development team that deliver a fantastic array of new products each year.

As a Senior Development Technologist, this is the ideal mix of hands on development plus management of projects. From taking the brief, to overseeing the concept stage and finally the process development phase to launch. You will have plenty of experience of being in a customer facing role, taking briefs, and issuing out instructions and ideas to the team - keeping the original profile of the brief but adding value and the extra touch that is always expected from the customer.

Our client is a chilled food manufacturer and we would be very keen to find someone who already has experience within the short shelf life sector. The pace within this part of the industry is second to none and it is vital that for this role you can hit the ground running.

So, if you have read the above and think that your experience is ticking a lot of the above boxes then we would love to hear from you. Apply today!
