Job Details

Fancy taking your food development career to the next level? Here you'll be creating innovative, quality food products in a business unafraid to take risks.

This is a high profile role in a quality focused, innovative food brand. We are looking for a Product Development Specialist with outstanding food credentials to develop and land first to market food concepts.

There is so much scope here for a creative individual who wants to push the boundaries in development. This business strives to always beat the competition in bringing new concepts to the UK market. So you'll get to enjoy the kudos of working on high profile projects, but this means it is fast-paced and can be demanding.

Typically you'll spend half the week in London where you'll come together with your colleagues, across Technical & Commercial and spend time in the impressive development facilities working on projects with the Chef team. Then there's a mix of home-working and visiting suppliers. It's an autonomous role and you'll have full responsibility for driving product development in your category.

People who succeed here are good at engaging with suppliers and stakeholders across the business to get things done. Enthusing passion for your products, having the consumer insight to back up your concepts and being resilient to make things happen.

Credibility here will come from having a great track record in successful product development, superb culinary knowledge and a keen eye for the latest industry trends. Ideally you'll have a breadth of experience across several different product categories.

It's a pretty flat structure here and there's lots of opportunities to grow and develop in different ways. If you're really keen to work in a specific area or on a particular project that is supported. Investing in your professional development is a given here. There's also a real focus on personal well-being and a comprehensive benefits package.
