Our client is looking for a driven Technical Manager to join one of the most well-known and respected brands in the food and drinks industry based in London. Their business is continuing to expand in Europe through market growth and cutting edge innovation which when combined with an amazing culture and values, makes this Technical Manager opportunity one of the most interesting technical roles this year.

As a Technical Manager you will be responsible for keeping the supply chain and its raw materials tasty, safe and legal. You’ll be working from supplier to manufacturer, measuring and monitoring the on-going quality parameters, looking at inconsistencies and trouble points through the season to ensure that all ingredients are grown, harvested and processed safely and to an agreed specification. The role also looks at product and supply chain innovations that might manage risk, reduce inconsistency, improve buying power, diversify sourcing and generally increase the sustainability of the supply chain.

We’re looking for someone with an outstanding Food Science or Technology degree, at least 5 years relevant technical & quality experience within fresh produce, food manufacturing or drinks as well as a great track record in leading HACCP & risk management. You’ll need to be super organised and analytical, great at multitasking and keen to keep the diverse suppliers on the straight and narrow with crystal clear communication and processes. As is the way, things don’t always go according to plan, so it would be good if you are adaptable as well as calm in a crisis.

If you have the required mix of experiences and qualities we require, please apply below and get in touch with Darren Houghton at Eden Search & Select on 0044 (0)113 834 6634 or email to arrange a confidential discussion.
