A real "foodie" with a passion for the development of innovative, market leading, tasty and healthy products is required for a growing site in south Lincolnshire. You will be a contact for a major retailer and will lead and develop this evolving relationship. This is a hugely exciting time to join the business and be part of a brand new way of working, developing new products and concepts for consumers. We would love to hear from a concept developer with a "blue sky" approach and with a proven track record of managing a key retailer account face to face. Experience of leading and managing others is also highly desirable.

This is an exciting opportunity to join a new team within the business and champion the development of market leading chilled food ranges. You will build upon an existing relationship and take it to the next level as a main point of contact for all NPD. The culture of the retailer is changing and this is a very interesting time to be part of the successful evolution. This role will offer autonomy, customer contact and an array of opportunities to develop your career for the long term.

Reporting into a Development Manager, this is a newly created role. You will manage a small team of Technologists developing and championing products in your categories, while liaising with the customer face to face.

You will innovate new products and processes and draw upon category management experience to innovate successful products that meet customer and consumer expectations. You will be customer facing, as a specialist, and will build rapport with the retailer. You will become an expert in your market keeping up to date with all of the latest trends and benchmarking competitor activity.

Chilled food experience is highly preferred coupled with experience of managing a major retailer account. If you would like to be part of this new team please contact me today for more information!
