Technical Manager, Food, Central Scotland, Hybrid working

£43,000 - £48,000 GBP per annum


REF: AAN45912

Apply for this position

Join an entrepreneurial food business where the door is open to expand your skills beyond the Technical and Food Safety.

As a Technical Manager, it’s a rarity to be given the opportunity to have 360 degree involvement across a business. Here the culture is inclusive and collaborative. It’s a one team approach, where you’ll be given access to the business strategy, be involved in company-wide team talks, and work closely with colleagues in Commercial and R&D.

Flexible working is also embraced here; if you prefer to be in the office five days that’s fine. Equally if working from home a couple of days works for you, go ahead, that’s fine too. In other words, it’s a place where you’ll be trusted, respected, and empowered to deliver.

So, who is this wonderful company? They’re agents and brokers who supply to the major UK retailers. All the manufacturing facilities are based overseas, so it will be your job to make sure they’re technically compliant and adhere to BRC standards.

To meet the standards, it’s likely you’ll have a minimum of five years’ experience, ideally with protein and high care/high risk products. You’ll need to be familiar with the retailer codes of practice, with a working knowledge of their specification systems. As a minimum, an intermediate HACCP qualification will be enhanced by TACCP/VACCP understanding.

You’ll ideally bring with you a Lead Auditor qualification, however, consideration will also be given if you’ve had internal audit training. As suppliers are based overseas, you’ll also have the opportunity for periodic travel to the factories for auditing purposes.

This is business on a growth curve, with strategy in place to grow by £8 million over the next three years. They are part of a larger Group, with the financial backing and investment to offer security and career development opportunities.

To find out more, send your CV and I’ll be in touch.
