Job Details

The £1bn food group has expanded from its core of chilled food to now occupy category leadership status across several markets.  This has been achieved by focusing on the creation of fantastic quality products, developing close working teams and understanding their customers.

To continue this expansion, they seek to enhance and add to their existing range of products within their chilled and frozen categories and seek to appoint an individual able to operate as part of the wider development team.

Reporting to the NPD Manager, you will be responsible for supporting the concept to launch process and so increase the speed at which new innovations can arrive in market.

This could involve everything and anything from management of factory trials at stage three to ensure viability of lines along with costings and compatibility with retailer needs.

In conjunction with the commercial and category teams, your retailer relationships will be utilized to enable the winning of new lines.

Your flexibility to “be involved” is more important than your experience.

As such your desire to learn will increase your opportunity to earn skills which will support your wider career growth across the group.

With 4-10 years’ experience of NPD innovation or technical development, this will provide an opportunity to develop your career and lead to future promotion.

After 20 years our Website host has gone into administration, therefore our Website is currently not accessible.

Paul Nyman Consultancy, was established in 2004 to support the FMCG sales, marketing , Category and NPD markets, after Paul was made redundant and toured the UK recruitment market seeking employment to pay the mortgage.

During this journey he identified some of the most important characteristics for job seekers hunting for a new role:

  • Understand what  I, as a candidate can do.
  • Honestly tell me why I cannot perform in the role I applied for.
  • Know how your clients can advance my career.
  • Get back to me.
  • Don’t BS me. 

These have become entwined in the approach the team at Paul Nyman Consultancy take to support individuals achieve career success across the UK and Europe.

We offer not just recruitment, but wider career support and development through workshops which include national and international recruitment and development experience.

Not just a recruiter.

We enjoy being career developers.
