Head of Technical

At FEI Foods, our market-leading microwave pouches are bursting with flavour. Our business is booming. And this role – like you – is brimming with potential.

For an experienced Technical Manager, there’s huge scope here to ensure that our reputation for food safety and quality standards keeps pace with the popularity of our products.

It’s a great chance for someone who’s on a career trajectory. Perhaps you’ve proven your skills with a larger FMCG business; here you’ll find here the individual accountability you’ve been looking for. Or, you might be in a similar role but ambitious for a job you can really sink your teeth into.

Real change

FEI is in the ascendancy too. Over the last six years we’ve consistently surpassed our customers’ expectations and expanded our range to keep up with demand from leading food retailers across Europe. We’re investing heavily, both at our Swansea HQ and in a new ultramodern site along the coast at Llantrisant.

Clearly, we’re not looking for someone who wants to keep things ticking over. We need a someone who can light fires, raise standards and instigate real change, bringing our technical processes and quality procedures up to world-class standards.

Your role

A great deal depends on getting the best out of your team. They need a motivator and a mentor – someone who’ll listen to them and support them to grow and develop as fast as the business. Your remit includes raw materials quality assurance, leading BRC and key customer visits, managing hygiene teams and systems (including chemical equipment). If there’s an audit or a crisis, you’ll take care of that too.

Positive returns

In return, you can look forward to being part of a positive, open culture. We demand a lot from our people but we’re still small enough to care about them all – we want everyone to be able to achieve their best with us, from the boardroom to the factory floor. And there’s room to do it – we’ve trebled our profits over the last six years.

We offer competitive benefits, including relocation assistance, a pension and a healthcare package for you and your family. You’ll enjoy a change of scenery too; you’ll be based at Swansea near the picturesque Mumbles coastline and working in Llantrisant, just along the M4 amongst the greenery of the Ely valley.
