Are you a problem solver? Do you like riddles? If so, riddle me this...

A container without hinges, lock, key or even a lid... yet a golden treasure lies inside me. What am I?

Before you ponder too hard for the answer, consider this new opportunity with my client as an opportunity to solve plenty of riddles on a weekly basis.

As a Senior Development Chef within a large creative team, you will have the responsibility in presenting chilled ready meal dishes, sides and deli food products for some of the UK's major grocery retailers.

Your NPD experience to date will have seen you successfully launch new product lines as part of existing ranges, or brand new first to market products. You'll know what is expected and what it takes to do this in a competitive market place.

It's a superb unit and open kitchen for all the retailer teams working with M&S, Tesco, Waitrose and J. Sainsbury's. You are surrounded by the latest equipment in facilities that truly represent a market leading business on top of their game. Start of the art kit coupled with a working environment that promotes exploration, true development and innovation wherever possible, has to hit the right notes for you as a creative Development Chef?

The team around you is made up of motivated, determined and skilled Development Chefs, who will look to you to collaborate and also influence them. This really is a place to bring your skills and enjoyment for NPD as you create great food products for the UK's most popular retailers.

This business is continuing its growth. Not a stock statement for the sake of this advert... they have recently made strategic purchases of competitor business, which further strengthens their grip in this market place. They continue to expand both here in the UK and abroad in North America and Asia too. The benefit to you being personal development that offer career succession with few limitations.

The UK is undoubtedly experiencing a period of political and economic uncertainty and as such, not many companies are positive or proactive in their sectors. Our client in this case has the strategic and financial security to do more. Become part of their future in order to bolster your own.

p.s. I'm an egg.
