Job Details

Are you a chef who has taken the switch into food manufacturing and would now like to work for a company which allows you the opportunity to see your products in the majority of the major supermarkets?

In this brand new Development Chef role you will have the chance to work for a company where the levels of creativity are unlimited.

- You will be continuously coming up with new and creative ideas

- The job will need you to stay ahead of current food trends by researching and trying them out in the development kitchen

You will need to ensure that all product briefs are delivered through effective test bakery and plant trial validation

Working closely with your colleagues is a must as you will have regular interactions with the Development Manager at all times to ensure product launches meet operational and quality standards

You must be a confident communicator as you may be required to lead customer and supplier presentations in the development managers absence.

If you are to succeed in this role you will need to be creative and have previously worked in a food manufacturing business as a Development Chef.
