Innovation, Creation and Passion – if you possess these qualities in abundance, we have the perfect job for you.
Head of Food Development is a brand new role at First Milk and it is incredibly important to us that we choose the right person to drive our ambitions in the wider food market.

As a major player in the UK dairy industry, our Head of Food Development will be the creative force bringing exciting new products to market.

Your creative spark will inspire our Food Development team to produce fantastic tasting food and together with your commercial astuteness, you will craft exciting new products to cost and to brief.

You need to be an assured self-starter with the enthusiasm to get your sleeves rolled up and get stuck into projects. We want you to be able to grab this role with both hands to make it your own.

You must have/be:

  • Impeccably high standards in taste and quality
  • Great presentation skills and confidence to influence our customers and key stakeholders
  • A strong team player with the ability to engage and work with our brand, foodservice, private label and export teams.
  • Able to withstand the heat in the kitchen, when the pressure builds.

You may be a chef looking for a fresh challenge or you may be a foodie with ladles of innovation experience.

If you think you have what it takes, what are you waiting for? We're looking for someone to start as soon as possible so we will close applications early in the New Year.
