Prepared and ready? Not the meals you make Chef, I mean you!

Are you satisfied in your current position? Do you genuinely get everything you want as a Development Chef? So many Chefs that are lucky enough to have made the break into NPD, find themselves frustrated and bored. You knew there would be production constraints, cost challenges and supply chain interferences, but on the whole you want to be creative and put your stamp on the food you launch into the market place, right?!

In this new brief I have spoken with the Commercial Director to take a first-hand view (and bird's eye view) of the position needed and who might fit the bill. My client is nearly 100 years old, as a very successful food business. As such, their longevity means they know what works and who benefits from their capabilities. Your customer base in this job allow you to be creative, on-trend and first-to-market for prepared ready meal products.

Your customers here, have access to millions of diners, daily. You'll bring your previous NPD experience to the team of Development Chefs, and alongside a great factory team, collaborate on some exciting meal solutions for a diverse customer base within foodservice.

You'll create dishes that not only draw from your culinary skill, but also your commercial nous. Of course, you'll benchmark, carry out food safaris, lead factory trials, assist with sampling and lead the customer on a journey of new ideas and improvement on existing favourites. But, you will also challenge the status quo and lead through innovation and blue-sky development. If you've had success already launching new concepts and having the taste panel applaud your work, you are wanted here.

I've visited the factory and offices - they're plush. You'll love them if you're used to 'the usual'. To compliment the environment you'll be given scope and breadth, working with five other Chefs who are warm, welcoming and hard working professionals that have been part of the more recent history, which as I said earlier - is nearly 100 years of quality!

Get in touch and call me for a conversation to confirm if this role is right for your career. I'm keen to talk to you so don't delay.
