Our client is a global ingredients company that is going through a very exciting time as it looks to expand its presence across Europe. Having established a Technical Centre in the south east of England, the business can now offer state of the art facilities in which to work with its ever-expanding customer base. These customers include the majority of the most high profile food and beverage manufacturers in the world.
The creation of the Technical Centre means that the company is looking for a high-calibre Technical/Applications Manager to focus on the UK, Ireland and France. A highly autonomous position, the role will have 2 key facets: firstly, you will display the capabilities of the company’s products in its pioneering Technical Centre in order to build relationships with strategically important food and beverage manufacturers. Secondly, you will accompany the sales team on customer visits, lending your technical expertise to differentiate the product range and highlight the benefits of working with you as opposed to your prime competitors.
The successful candidate for this position will be able to demonstrate a successful, progressive career to date in either the food ingredients or flavours sector. Having worked across a range of applications, you will be comfortable working in a number of categories – but most importantly, you will have experience in the beverage sector. With a deep understanding of R&D processes, an education to a minimum of degree level would be preferred, as would a grasp of French, although this is not essential. You will possess experience in a customer facing role and be confident in fostering relationships with national and European customers.
With an entrepreneurial way of thinking and the ability to identify and seize opportunities, you will thrive in a fast-paced and forward thinking company.
