The Business

This is a UK based autonomous division of a £multi-million group that produces a mix of branded and own label food solutions across Chilled & Frozen categories to major retailers.

The Role

The Head of Technical will have overall responsibility for the safety, quality and legality of products manufactured on site to agreed quality specifications and standards. You will also be responsible for planning, managing and deploying resources within the Technical function to optimum advantage in order to ensure that departmental costs are kept under control or reduced, whilst operating to a plan of continuous improvement. You will also be responsible for a team of individuals, providing you with the opportunity to lead and mentor this group in their career and to improve the efficiency of the site going forwards. 

The Individual

A strong personality with drive, punch, energy and a propensity to push for change and continuous improvement will be required to deliver the ambitious growth plan set by the Senior Management Team. You will ideally have experience across a fast-paced chilled environment and M&S specifically will be a big bonus. 

The Opportunity
