Typically, you can expect to be involved with:

  • Modifying existing products and processes and developing new ones
  • Developing methods to repeat processes to ensure consistency in manufacturing
  • Undertaking individual research projects, including alongside other departments, e.g. reducing waste
  • Work with the commercial team to develop completely new product lines
  • Enable our production processes to become uniform and replicable from batch to batch
  • Develop methods to ensure delivered oil blends are effectively mixed pre-use
  • Improve winterisation of our ingredient oils
  • Lead our shelf life testing regime

The Candidate:

  • A level science or equivalent
  • Food technology experience

  • Ability to travel nationally and occasionally internationally
