Job Description

This is a 12-month Fixed Term Contract role working for a market leading organisation.

The business is truly passionate about its people and products, truly proud of their unique and exciting product ranges and standards. The business is renowned for providing a great, positive work environment with passionate employees, where you are given the freedom to make changes that can shape the business.

You’ll be responsible for food safety, quality and technical, working with the supply base across a specific food product category. Working time is typically split between Head Office in London and with the suppliers across the UK. You’ll have the opportunity to use your technical and innovation expertise to elevate the quality standards.

You’ll play an essential role in meeting the extremely high customer expectations. You’ll work closely with the NPD team, delivering exciting and innovative unseen new products that meet the quality and safety standards.

The ability to influence and build relationships with stakeholders, both internally and externally is essential for this role, requiring determination and resilience to be effective.

This role requires someone who has in-depth technical knowledge and understanding of the global technical/quality food issues, often managing industry wide and specific supplier issues with pace and confidence.

The organisation suits highly motivated team players, looking to drive their careers forward with commitment to achieving within their roles and supporting the business to succeed. Professionalism is key, as is a personable nature with the ability to forge strong relationships.

Clearly this role is a 12-month Fixed Term Contract, however there is a precedent for retaining high achievers within the business where possible.

They have a competitive benefits package and attractive salary dependant on experience to ensure they can entice the right individuals.

If this sounds like your next role and you’re available before the end of July then please apply now!
