Who is our client?
Are you a Development Technologist looking for a new challenge? Do you have concept to launch experience? Would you be interested in working in a job that offers a high level of autonomy and excellent opportunities for progression?
Our client is an established, growing food business with several sites across the UK. They produce a broad range of leading products and currently supply into all of the main retailers. Their success is a result of their excellent reputation for innovation and product quality and they're now looking for a new Technologist to join their NPD team and play a key role in driving the business forward.

You will be developing complex, multi-component products in a fast paced, yet supportive environment, in a business which puts its people first (no micromanaging here).
You will work on EPD projects, working to improve the current product portfolio through ingredient changes, salt/sugar reduction and so on.
What sort of people are we looking for?
You will ideally be degree qualified in a Food related discipline with at least 2 years’ NPD experience.
You will have full concept to launch experience, from creating samples through to factory trials and final launch.
Confident in your approach, you will be able to work autonomously and meet deadlines, ensuring that products are delivered on time, on budget and at the required specification.
