Job Details

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 Commercial Director wishes to appoint an NPD Development Manager to lead and develop a young team in this multifaceted fast pace business.

You will operate in parallel with the MD and Commercial Director to launch multiple new products across different categories each year.  Growth here is up 50% in 9 months so your people development skills will be as developed as the strategic thinking that will bring new product to market in the next year.  Whilst speed is critical to win in this market so is, innovation, courage and passion to create new ideas into realisation.

Through a team you will oversee everything from bench through to factory and commercial launch to enable the delivery of the high quality standards that have become the expected norm for this business in its retail and foodservice markets.

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 5-10 years’ experience of NPD innovation and technical development, this will provide an opportunity to develop your career and lead to future promotion.
