Our client is a major supplier the major UK multiples and as a result of expansion is looking to strengthen its team with the appointment of a NPD Manager.

This role will probably appeal to you if you have graduated in food technology or food science and you are someone who is passionate about food, looking to further their career in an NPD role. It will involve dealing with the customer technologists, in all aspects of the development process: brainstorming briefs, setting up detailed recipe sheets, product samples, panels, final sign off and aiding the technical and operational management in product critical paths from concept through to launch.

The role is therefore fast and very varied and you will need to possess a 'hands on' attitude, as you could well be presenting your ideas to a customer one minute and the undertaking a comparative shop review the next.

We are therefore looking for a creative and inspirational Development Manager to manage the NPD department. You will have experience in leading teams in developing high quality, creative products. It is important you are a natural leader with the ability to creatively inspire those around you.
