This is an SME style business that punches way above its fighting weight in the FMCG food market. It still operates as an autonomous division of a Food group and has created a niche that has earned the respect of their customers through continuously creating fantastic solutions for its consumers. Its success has been delivered through real innovation across its chosen chilled and frozen categories.
Rather than tinker on the edges, this management team lead with their conviction and create brand new concepts. Therefore, to continue this success, the NPD Director wishes to appoint a process development technologist who will work create the effective connection between NPD And Manufacturing whilst interacting across the factory and commercial functions to deliver ground breaking solutions.
You'll support the NPD Manager and Technical Manager in the day to day running of the NPD and Process functions, organising resources to deliver projects in line with ambitious business plans and profit targets as well as the critical paths to deliver projects on time and in cost.
You will be hands on with the products, scaling them up for trials in the factory and managing all steps concept to launch.
You will be as comfortable “in the kitchen bench” as you are embedding factory activities that will create inspiring products for their consumers
Whilst you may not necessarily have had exposure to all these in your career, as training can be provided, you will have the aptitude to create exciting new ideas and lead development of new concepts to launch.
This is an environment for those earning freedom from the corporate glue of large multinationals as there will be few “policies and procedures” but plenty of freedom. So you must be self-organised and motivated to deliver in a fast paced and uncompromising environment
With 3- 5 years’ experience of NPD innovation or technical development, this will provide an opportunity to develop your career and lead to future promotion.
