Job Description

If you are reading this, perhaps passively, "I am not actively seeking a role" you think to yourself, "I'm happy in my job but it doesn't hurt looking" you may say...

If you like to keep your eye on the market, ear close to the ground, you are the ambitious type, pro-active and want to ensure you don't let that next career step pass you by when the time is right - well don't let this pass you by...

Joining this multi-national, multi-million pound food business as a Technical Manager you will be enabled to stretch yourself by working on an expansive site with a large technical team reporting directly to you. Day-to-day people management will allow you to work with teams on the shop floor encouraging engagement, open communication and idea sharing and a truly quality, hygiene and health and safety focused workforce.

There are systems and procedures in place but there are definite areas for improvement particularly to ensure the workforce take ownership and pride in product quality and safety. Where this role really differs is you will be able to work with other sites and share learnings and implement conformity throughout the business, for this you will be able to utilise your strategic mind-set and ability to see the bigger picture, as well as being sucked into the day-to-day operations. There are major projects and real investment in this business. There is also a real sense of partnership with customers, so in this role you will be able to build upon your customer facing exposure and will be the main point of contact for the UK business.

This role is part of a success story; not a fictional one but a real representation of management progressing into pastures new within the wider business. This now opens the door for you to join the UK structure and lead and drive continued growth and change with an established technical team across three units as Site Technical Manager. With the past two managers having progressed and been promoted into new roles within the company, the prospects of career progression will definitely be there for you too!

General responsibilities:

  • Initiate and drive technical projects
  • Drive quality culture and improvements
  • Develop and structure the QA team
  • Build upon and maintain excellent relationships with customers
  • Drive performance utilising KPIs

To be considered for this role it is essential you have worked directly with major UK retailers. We are looking to interview immediately so apply now!
