Job Details

The Company

An amazingly innovative position has arisen to join an award winning food brand who are renowned for creating premium products for discerning and adventurous consumers in the UK.  This established food business is now looking for a passionate and creative Development Chef to join their team and continue their success.

The Role

In this diverse role you’ll be working on the brand’s innovations pipeline and developing the business’ culinary output through your ingredients and gastronomic knowledge. Up to date with the latest trends you’ll be enthusiastic and ambitious with the ability to really drive strategic objectives forward. You’ll create concepts with your mind always fixed on the brand’s core values and will really understand the consumer base so that you can create amazing products which will captivate your consumers and stay one step ahead of the competition.

The Person

We are looking for an industrious, inventive and talented Chef who oozes creativity.  Your experience could be within a previous NPD Chef role within the food manufacturing or retail sector, or you could be working at a prestigious restaurant and are looking for that elusive first step into Product Development.

Ambitious and inspiring you’ll have a proven track record of creating products that capture the latest trends and ingredients to dazzle and impress your customers. You will understand how a brand’s values are translated into their products to stay in-tune with your customers and will inherently know how brand expectations differ in terms of product ranges and concepts. Confidently able to deliver persuasive presentations you’ll also have an excellent grasp of product costings and good commercial awareness, coupled with the ability to identify innovation opportunities and think outside the box to achieve market success.

If you have the creative flair and culinary ability to keep up with the pace of this fast moving environment then we’d like to hear from you. Apply now or call us on 0345 2600 737 to find out more.
