Here's an opportunity to join a fast-growing international business in a varied role with bags of potential.

As NPD & Innovations Manager, you will manage the Beverages category - an area with massive growth opportunity. You'll be part of a talented and supportive team, reporting into the Head of R&D.

This already successful and ambitious company supplies innovative ingredients into a range of Health, Sports & Nutrition customers.

You'll be developing beverage applications, introducing new ingredients and renovating existing ones then pro-actively showcasing new concepts to customers. As the go-to beverages expert, you'll be abreast of the latest trends and advances in ingredients and technologies in your category.

As well as recipe formulation you will be conducting trials, drafting specifications and supporting the commercial team with advice on products. You'll be customer facing, supporting them in using ingredients in their products and developing strong relationships with suppliers and co-manufacturing partners too.

In essence this position is about using consumer insight and technical knowledge to develop creative solutions to inspire customers.

The role will involve some travel to meet customers and suppliers however will predominantly be based at head office, working in a well-invested, new development facility.

To succeed here you'll ideally have experience formulating protein beverages or dairy products and have a good understanding of ingredients functionality. Working within a B2B role where you have provided ingredients solutions to customers would be a plus but not essential if you have strong relationship management skills. You'll need enthusiasm, passion and credibility in presenting concepts along with hands on recipe formulation experience.

If you are looking to join a solid and successful company where your career can flourish, this is a great opportunity to consider.
