Do you have great attention to detail and love crossing the "t's" and dotting the "i's" - then read on...
Our client is a very forward thinking, successful organisation with a great reputation among its retailer customers. Lots of opportunities are available within this business for those of you who have ambition - and if not then this is simply a great place to work!
Working amongst the Technical and Development teams you will keep abreast of all new products and any existing products that are changed as a result of customer agreement. Your remit will be to ensure that all specifications are finished off to the highest level, complying with legal, customer and business standards.
We do need to find an experienced specifications technologist, or at the very least you will have been responsible for writing specifications as a part of your job.
The ideal candidate will have already worked on specifications for the major retailers in past career roles. This is a very exact job and the role of the Spec Tech is highly regarded within food businesses due to the legal implications of not conforming to the requirements.
Ideally you will have a food science background and will understand the impact of various changes / ingredient presence. You will have a questioning mind and not accept things at face value, challenging information when appropriate.
Obviously you will be adept at working online as the majority of retailer specifications are accessed in this way and you will have a love of working in a food environment.
After all this is working as part of the NPD team - you are one of the first to hear about brand new products coming out on the shelves - if you have a love of food then that would only ever be a bonus!
So, if you love order, are the best when it comes to attention to detail work and are looking to join a successful, forward thinking business then send in your CV today - let's talk!
