The Company

Have you ever considered a relocation to New Zealand? Do you like the thought of joining a vibrant, entrepreneurial food brand where you can share and indulge your passion for food? This premium brand are continually expanding with ambitions to be the greatest in their sector across global markets. They are now looking for a highly talented, engaging and tenacious Innovation & Technical Lead to join their Antipodean team.

The Role

This senior management role will take responsibility for all aspects of the product development lifecycle, owning and managing the delivery of the innovation pipeline.  You will manage the Innovations and Process Teams to ensure the development and launch of exceptional products that are commercially and technically viable.  This will encompass technical and quality aspects of NPD and EPD as well as managing long term projects for packaging and sustainability initiatives. 

This is a broad role where no two days will be the same so you’ll need to have the agility and pace to make things happen and deliver results.  As well as leading your team you will need to be hands on to support with recipe formulations and trialling new products in the factory.  You will work closely with factory teams, co-manufacturing partners and the Innovations team at the UK office. 

The Candidate

We're looking for an exceptionally talented Innovation Technical Manager who is a strong leader with creative flair and is just as at ease dealing with technical and quality matters as they are with NPD. Your extensive experience will include working within high risk food manufacturing environments where you have proven experience of bringing great products to market within an innovative or technically biased food category / brand.  Previous experience working within the dairy sector would be amazing. You will be a real foodie, enjoy being hands on, driving projects and have a positive, collaborative approach with the ability to influence and challenge the norm. 

So if you are looking for a fresh new challenge where you can be part of entrepreneurial food brand, move to pastures new and develop your career in a senior role then apply now or call us on 0345 2600 737 for a chat and more information.
