Job Description

Working for this client will boost your energy, reduce your cravings, encourage restful nights and restore vitality. Big claims I know – however you only have to read through the testimonials, given by their client base that includes TV personalities and models. 

This company was launched in 2015, by an expert nutritionist who understood that the key to feeling great comes from inside. Nourishing your body with the right foods and nutrients is the secret to happy and healthy living. They launched straight into Selfridges and have been taking over the premium market one store at a time. Now you can purchase the products in the likes of Fortnum & Mason, Harvey Nichols with expansion into Topshop, ASOS and Boots planned in 2018.

With plans to grow to £1m by the end of 2018 and become a £15/20m business within the next 5 years, now is the time to join this exciting team.

They are currently on the search for an Innovation Manager to come on board, and bring with them creative flair, insane project management skills and a passion for health & wellness. You would be handling anything from concept creation with the Founder to researching and planning critical paths with the MD. You would be responsible for building and strengthening relationships with the suppliers as well as guiding and briefing the manufacturers.

You would take ownership of the product, from concept to launch, including trend research and commercialisation as well as working on specifications and packaging. This is a fantastic opportunity to build on your product management experience and knowledge within an ambitious SME.

With modest offices currently there are plans to move further central in 2018. They are a smaller team, however practically like family. An understanding of SME environments would be advantageous in this process.  

The team are looking for someone with at least 3 years’ experience product managing, developing or innovating within nutrition, beauty or food sectors. A brilliant record of education, showing excellent organisation is important to this client. Having passion and real ambition is key for success within this process.
