Kent • £Negotiable
Our client is already a thriving manufacturer of bespoke products, providing products for the major UK retailers. The company manufactures handmade chilled products and have grown consistently year on year. They are expecting fast growth in the coming years and require a strong technical professional to support this. The business prioritises quality over mass production and seeks an experienced Technical Manager to maintain and improve the current gold standards. The company’s main customer uses the sites as an example to other manufacturers, as the site achieved a gold status audit.
Working as the most senior member of the technical team, you will report into the Technical Director but the role is extremely autonomous. You will be managing the production facilities, creating, amending and reviewing specifications and management of the QMS. You will be supported by Food Technologists in areas such as Audits, Specifications and Food Safety. As the company expands, your experience working with a multitude of business sizes would be a benefit during the constant expansion.
With a product background of chilled and high care, you should have experience managing a small team, a strong understanding of specifications and artwork approval which adhere to major retailer standards. You will be integrating into a team and interacting with all departments in the business, so being a team player is crucial for the role. The role also requires a degree of flexibility, supporting different areas of the business according to demand. A food related degree is desired.
