Job Details

New Year, New Career = New Product Development Chef within Pan Asian cuisine.

Can you envisage using all your Chef skills for a completely new customer base? How would it feel to take your Pan Asian food knowledge from the kitchen, to potentially every home in the UK?

My client is a major player within food manufacturing, and as such they supply some of the country's best retailers with chilled meal solutions. We think your expertise within Pan Asian cuisine could open brand new doors to this food category.

The Pan Asian trend is getting bigger and better than ever, so it's no surprise this opportunity is available, adding another team member to an already high achieving group of New Product Development Chefs. The business produces innovative ideas for this category and you will be at the forefront of the Oriental fixture with key customers, as they look to you for the next big thing.

You'll be tasked with considering what's popular and what can be regarded as 'future proof' ready meal ideas.

You will also have to be inventive with adaptations to both regional and cultural classics. That's across a variety of styles too, such as Japanese, Chinese, Thai and Korean for example. Your varied and intense experiences within restaurants for these cuisines will bring the best out of you for this environment.

One word of caution is fair and realistic though; not everyone will love your ideas and you need to understand the customer needs to be treated with kid gloves when introducing new recipes into the category. Part of the role will be to review and amend concepts so that the factory can produce to scale and the customer can purchase at the correct price point. There is so much more to it than simply working in a traditional restaurant brigade!

Your personality and charisma will be brought to attention as you present concepts and new ideas to an engaged, yet discerning panel of experts (internal and external) who will be part of your idea's journey, from the development kitchen to the home kitchens of the Great British public.

If this adventure sounds like a career choice you can make, then don't delay apply now or call me for more details to ensure it's the right move for you.
