Delivering consistently delicious food to a loyal fanbase takes dedication. Uncompromising standards and quality ingredients are where it all starts.
This branded food business is a household name. Delivering delicious, top-quality food to a big UK fanbase means uncompromising quality ingredients and a dedicated supplier base to meet the high standards.
Despite the size of the company, it’s a culture where people feel supported and empowered. Career development and continual growth are encouraged; your aspirations and goals are listened to, with a career plan in place from day one to achieve them.
Working with the Head of Supplier Assurance, you’ll be accountable for your own portfolio of suppliers; food, packaging and food contact equipment, to improve technical policies and supplier compliance. Evaluating risk and supplier performance, coaching to raise standards and working with stores to investigate and manage complaints, we’re looking for a proactive and motivational approach.
A Food Science or Microbiology degree will be supported by sector experience covering chilled, high-risk food. This role focusses on proteins and supports NPD, so knowledge of meat processing will be an advantage. Your technical management experience is likely to have come from Retail, Foodservice or Manufacturing, where your ability to communicate complex issues and influence cross-functional teams has achieved improved standards.
Around 40% of your time will be spent travelling to stores and suppliers with the remainder split between office and remote working, so a UK driving licence and willingness to travel is needed.
So, what else is on offer apart from career development and support? A raft of great benefits including:
- Generous car allowance
- Discretionary bonus
- Private health care
- Private dental care
- Discounted gym membership
- Free cinema tickets
- Online shopping discounts
- Enhanced paternity pay… and more
