Full Time

Culinary expert with a passion for creating exciting new recipes is wanted for a world-leading food business with this Development Chef opportunity.

Our client is a market-leading food business that offers an ambitious and genuinely creative Chef the chance to start a career within New Product Development. Many Chefs see the advantage of a career within NPD in order to balance work and personal life, whilst still creating new dishes and products that can be enjoyed by the entire UK population, through the major retailers. If you are ready to make the step from restaurant to boardroom, this could be your chance.

As a Development Chef for one of the world's leading food businesses you will be responsible for creating Ready Meal products that fill the shelves of the country's premium retailers. Working across a range of cuisine styles and having the capacity to utilise your vast knowledge of ingredients, you will be able to bring your Blue Sky concepts to life, meeting the current food trends to satisfy a number of customer demographics.

As a serious Development Chef candidate you must have:

  • A stable career within high-end kitchens
  • An ability to communicate to a range of audiences whilst cooking
  • A knowledge of international cuisine, through travel, research and previous work
  • A strong ability to identify flavour profiles across a variety of food styles
  • Up to date understanding of the latest national and international food trends

The position of Development Chef will suit the candidate who wants more from their career than a normal restaurant kitchen can provide. If you have a thirst for food knowledge and a hunger to progress your career onto another level, then send your CV in application immediately.
