Job Description

This is a job for the foody professional who has a background of working in NPD; developing new products for the major retailers.

You have got to the point in your career where you have an excellent portfolio of products that you can put your name against but you aren't being stretched as much as you like.

Or... you are already in a senior development role, but you fancy a change in product area.

Whatever your background, you are keen to take the next step and that next step needs to satisfy your food needs and build on / maintain the client management experience that you already have.

You love food and tend to take longer than average when you visit the supermarket. Farmer's Markets, Top end Delis and designing your holiday around food capitals are just some of the things that you are renowned for. If ever there was a foody anorak - this would be you!

Our client encourages innovation and research in the name of creativity. As well has knowing the current flavours and ingredients that are topping the charts you have evidence of seeing the future trends and designing products around this.

The creative onus is not all around you though. There is a strong development team all working towards the one goal. A lot of this role is about guidance and direction and supporting the management process, and the development technologists.

This is an excellent opportunity for an aspiring development professional to take that step towards a management position. If that sounds like you then please get in touch!
