Job Description

You've been a Spec Tech for a while now and you have started to take on more responsibilities, including managing some junior members of the Technical team. This management experience is perhaps over an administrator or some technologists, but you aren't feeling that sense of achievement at the end of the day. It is definitely time to start looking for your next new challenge!

Our client is a progressive business. Working with the major retailers, we would need to see plenty of evidence that you have been trained in and used several retailer software packages for specification writing.

Hopefully you will enjoy writing specs as that is not going to go away in this job, however there is a small team to manage and delegate to. You will have to step in on occasion and prioritise workload. We know in your department that everything needs to be done NOW, but actually some things are more important than others, so you will be adept in managing this order.

There will be some involvement with the retailer - the Senior Specification Technologist will, on occasion, need to speak with the Technical team to discuss process and answer any queries that they may have in the detail. You are good at detail, so this will not be a problem for you!

This is one of those roles where you are part of a number of teams - NPD, Technical and Packaging. You are that essential cog in the wheel to ensure that everything gets passed and production can continue. Attention to detail is one of your major strengths. Nothing gets past you. Your organisation is second to none, so when an audit happens all the information is ready to hand - and more importantly accurate and up to date.

You are definitely the person that our client would want to join their team. Apply today!
