Is your's the "in" place to be for dinner?

Job Description

You consider yourself to be highly creative and love mooching about in the food markets and shops. Tasting samples and trying out new dishes is genuinely one of your pet hobbies.

In other areas your level of interest would put you in an "anorak" category, however not so in food. You are allowed to be this interested as, after all, food is an area well loved by the masses.

Your friends love coming to yours for dinner. They know that they will get exciting new meals every time they come and they are happy to test your creations as most times they work out well.

Working in the food manufacturing industry is a dream come true. You love being in the thick of things and can't believe that you are actually being paid to research new food trends and even test out the odd new restaurant.

This role is predominantly based in the development kitchen but you consider the factory to be a key player in the development process and you never forget this. As such your ideas - while challenging - will always be realistic and you are happy to talk through the products in the hand-over to the factory teams.

You will be a great team player - happy to take signed off products from the Development Chef and make up repeat samples for customer send outs where necessary, but you will also deputise for the Development Manager and look after the team on occasions, so flexibility is your second name.

This role is only open to experienced Development Technologists looking to take the next step in their career in to a junior management role, or even an existing Development Manager looking for a step down in responsibilities. You must have experience of NPD within a food manufacturing environment as well as being a real foody.

Sound like you? Then send in your details, we would love to hear from you.
