The Role

Reporting to the Head of Innovation, you will take centre stage in this high profile role, being the linchpin between customers, manufacturing partners and internal teams.

The Person

You will also have previously worked with the retailers, ideally on own label products. You will be personable and approachable with the ability to form positive and long-lasting relationships with internal teams and suppliers.

A real passion for food, quality and solutions, you’ll be able to work cross-functionally with excellent communication skills, commercial awareness and outstanding influencing skills. Your strong project management skills will be demonstrable alongside your knowledge of what is going on in the retail & foodservice landscape.
