The Business

Kiren Foods is a privately-owned pizza manufacturer based in Rochdale, Manchester. The business supply pizza, Italian flat bread, dough balls and pizza toppings to food service, convenience and major retailers in the UK and abroad. 

Operating across chilled and frozen they manufacture under own label and the Pizza Mia brand which is a growing brand with a presence across a number of UK major retailers and convenience customers. 

Through a combination of increased investment, growth of the customer base and continued expansion of the Pizza Mia brand the business is now looking to add a number of additional people to the business as they upskill and develop their team for the future. 

The Person 

You could be a recent graduate with an industrial placement in the food industry or a more experienced technologist looking for the next step in your career and so the level of responsibility and progression path will reflect this. 

Reporting to the NPD Manager you will be responsible for taking products from concept through to launch and will be fully customer facing with a customer base which will span some of the UKs largest retailers. Exposure to working in or closely with a process team will also be beneficial but not essential. 

Whilst growth is exciting, fun and rewarding it can also be uncertain, challenging and a little scary at times. You must be able to roll with the punches, adapt to an environment in a constant state of change and not just tolerate but thrive in a busy ever changing empowering business. 

The Opportunity

This is a rare opportunity to join a team at what is set to be the start of a major growth phase in its history. 

They are looking for bright, engaging people with high energy and a high propensity towards personal development and career advancement.
