Job Details

Food Safety Scientist

Job ref: 62750 | £30,000 - £40,000 | Surrey

The company

We are seeking a talented and ambitious individual to work for a small but rapidly growing manufacturer of innovative products, with a strong commitment to customer care, research & development, and environment & sustainability.

The job

This is a fantastic opportunity for a talented food safety professional to work with a unique business that is highly regarded due to the exceptional quality and innovative nature of their products.

As Food Safety Scientist, your purpose will be to develop and deliver the safety, quality, and legal requirements for the business in multiple areas such as manufacturing, distribution and suppliers, putting the customer at the heart of what you do.

This is a very hands-on role, where you will work across the business, including production, technical etc. carrying out food safety auditing, identifying areas of risk and implementing corrective actions to ensure compliance.

Due to their continued success, the business is now looking to implement BRC and drive the business forwards, therefore there is an excellent opportunity for the successful candidate to grow and progress.

Your experience

This role would suit a highly motivated and ambitious individual with a solid food safety/science track record together with excellent microbiological knowledge (essential).

You will be scientifically minded and highly analytical - being able to fully interpret and understand laboratory micro methods and results, plus know the procedures to undertake during events such as contamination. Knowledge of fermentation is also highly desirable.

Hands-on working knowledge of quality and food safety management systems (BRC) is also essential – not necessarily having managed the process, but have worked to the standard and how to practically implement to ensure compliance.

You will be educated to a degree level in a food science or related biological science discipline and additional qualifications including Lead Assessor and Level 3 Food Safety and HACCP are preferred.

More details

The Food Safety Scientist job is based in Surrey and is paying £30,000 - £40,000 according to individual skills and previous experience.

The working hours will be standard office hours, however with some flexibility for manufacturing operations and supplier management.
