Development Chef, Norfolk
Working with one of the country's most loved retailers on Ready Meals and Ready To Cook products has never been so exciting...
Hats in the air, high fives all-round as you launch another great new product into the stores, of a beloved UK retailer, for the Great British public to enjoy in their thousands! It's not a dream at all, it's quite often the reality for Development Chefs within this team. Our client is one of the nation's most successful food manufacturers and they have room for another Development Chef to join the ranks in Norfolk.
If you have produced either Ready Meals or Ready To Cook products for key retailers, then you'll understand the joys and benefits that can come with a Development Chef position like this. You'll also know that it's not easy getting your ideas through the factory trial and onto the chilled aisle shelves, but the juice, is well worth the squeeze, when you have your products filling the trolleys of customers up and down the land.
The company is a well-respected and successful food manufacturer and whilst they work with all the major UK retailers, this role is focusing on a particular customer and its customer base. Ready To Cook products allow Chefs to create dishes with added value so the customers feel they have some control in compiling a full dish, without the technical challenges you will make look easy.
A superb business needs superb Chef skills. Whilst the business would prefer to take on an experienced Development Chef who has achieved success already within another category for key retailers, there is an open mind to the right candidate experience.
If you have worked within excellent restaurants and have your finger firmly on the pulse of contemporary food trends, we want to hear from you too. What you might lack in NPD experience, you will make up for with drive, passion and food knowledge that can add real value to the team here.
Ensure you have the right motivations and a genuine desire to work within food manufacturing, and let's get talking.
