Head of Technical
Our client has built a reputation as a highly respected business partner to the top British supermarket chains.
As a result of continued growth and development, they are now seeking to appoint a leader to their critical technical department, in order to be able to continue to provide the same high level of service sourcing products of excellence, and providing major account leadership as a subject matter expert. With a supply base across Europe, and further afield, the role will include extensive supplier management, which will include driving client standards and due diligence across a range of challenging production settings, with focus on producers of meat products across all species.
A credible technical professional, the appointee will have extensive experience in supplier assurance, auditing capabilities and up to date technical and legislative knowledge relating to overseas suppliers to the UK market. It is a role that requires a broad understanding of multiple product categories, ideally with food safety awareness from high care environments. This role would best suit a self-starting and proactive individual, who can be diplomatic and vocal in equal measure. A reasonable amount of overseas travel can also be expected in this role.
