An entrepreneurial food business who are respected for their fresh, innovative products have recently expanded their operation and moved to a brand new factory. They are now looking for a Technical Manager to help drive the delivery of the highest quality products for their discerning customers.
Reporting to the MD you’ll be working as part of a small but highly capable team to ensure all products are produced to the highest levels of quality, safety and legality. This will include overseeing the factory technical function alongside supporting the implementation and maintenance of the Technical and Quality Standards across the site. You’ll work closely with Operations to ensure the smooth day to day running of the factory, guaranteeing non-conformances and food safety risks are resolved quickly, effectively and with integrity.
You’ll be managing and co-ordinating complaint investigation and audit procedures, liaising with key customer contacts and working in partnership with them to analyse, resolve and prevent technical issues. Additionally you’ll lead your team to promote a ‘right first time’ culture across the factory through the effective implementation of robust QA systems in line with the latest quality legislation whilst providing opportunities for training and development.
Suit an exceptional Quality or Technical Manager with well-rounded experience gained within a complex chilled manufacturing environment. It is essential that you have experience managing and implementing HACCP and BRC standards with a successful track record of achieving excellence.
