A fantastic opportunity to work in the concept side of one of the largest growing sectors within the food industry!

Our client is a highly successful, award-winning organisation supplying delicious products to the major retailers and foodservice customers. This is a business that has proven itself over the years and is not standing still - our client is going places!

We have been asked to find an experienced development individual to join the business. Ideally, you will have skills in the bakery sector or at the very least you will be an experienced Developer/Development Chef, with a fantastic portfolio of tempting creations that can be seen in the marketplace.

The role of the Concept Developer is predominantly development kitchen based. A degree of factory involvement once products have been approved will be necessary but only as an overseer. You will be aware of factory processes and abilities, however predominantly you will be creative through and through. We want innovation!

As well as being creative, we are looking for a Concept Developer with a commercial head on their shoulders. You will be asked to work to briefs by the customer, but you will also be proactive in NPD. Spotting gaps in the market and presenting ideas internally and to the customer will be a requirement for this role. Market research and in-depth knowledge of the area will play a key part in driving ideas forward to the kitchen.

This is a very exciting opportunity for a Concept Developer who is ready to take a next step in their career. Joining this successful organisation will only serve to add value to your experience. A friendly team is waiting to welcome you - apply today!

To assist you searching for a role by location - we have added a generic postcode, when uploading the advert, that designates the centre of the county in which this job is found. You may not see this on certain job boards.
