This is an excellent chance to join a prominent food manufacturer producing innovative chilled products across a vast range of categories for prestigious customers. Highly ambitious and passionate about good food, they are looking for a Product Developer to join their team to help drive new projects, continue their success and retain their position as a market leader in their sector.

The Role

In this diverse and rewarding role you’ll play an instrumental part in developing new and existing product ranges to keep up with consumer expectations in this ever changing market. You’ll be part of a supportive NPD team with specific category responsibility, taking the lead in developing and driving innovative product concepts. Working from the concept brief stage to approval, you’ll create commercially viable products that encompass new and seasonal food trends alongside coordinating, managing and delivering persuasive presentations. You’ll also work with key customers on a daily basis, keeping them updated on the critical path and product progress, ensuring expectations are met all the way.

Additionally, you’ll combine your zest for creativity with your commercial awareness, identifying opportunities to develop current product ranges that deliver long term market growth. This will include trend and market insight analysis, benchmarking, blue-sky lunches and organising food safaris to give the business a creative edge over their competitors.

The Person

Suit a creative and tenacious Product Developer of graduate calibre who has worked in a similar chilled NPD role. You’ll have proven experience of developing creative new products, delivering persuasive presentations and establishing relationships with a key customer base. With a resourceful and flexible approach to NPD processes you’ll have amazing communication and organisation skills in order to work with your team to deliver successful NPD projects. You’ll also have invaluable knowledge and understanding of manufacturing processes alongside an innovative approach to product development with proven commercial awareness.
