Job Details

Here's a newly created role working for a leading FMCG brand. An opportunity to progress your career in Product Development.

You'll be joining a supportive and talented team as Product & Innovation Support Technologist. This is a varied role, supporting the NPD function so you'll gain a real breadth of experience.

You'll be involved in product benchmarking, gap analysis and the quality and organoleptic assessment of products. Supporting the NPD Managers handling projects through the stage and gate process, you'll be working with all functions across the business and with external manufacturing partners.

This is a company that really supports your personal development. There's plenty of routes for progression and the opportunity to undertake further formal training and qualifications. It's a company highly regarded for its supportive culture, focus on work-life balance and keeping its employees happy. It's super busy though, they have enjoyed another record year and are busier than ever. You'll need to enjoy having lots to do and be able to manage multiple projects to meet deadlines.

If you are hungry to learn with a can-do attitude, you'll fit in well here. You'll need to be confident in presenting your ideas and dealing with people at all levels. You'll also need good organisation skills and the ability to focus on the detail, even when under pressure.

Ideally, you'll have -
  • A Food Science or related qualification
  • Experience working in NPD
  • A knowledge or organoleptic assessment (especially within food manufacturing) and of sensory evaluation techniques.
  • A knowledge of food manufacturing principles and HACCP

You'll need the right to work in the UK too.
