Job Description

This company are completely focused on building the best innovation team within the industry. They hold the title of the UK’s leading manufacturer of retailer own brand cakes, and they achieved this by putting innovation deep in the centre of their strategy.

They are on the search for a Concept Technologist to join the highly-respected team. You would be given full responsibility to arrange, manage and control concept development across categories and expected to deliver quality within the creative stage of product development. You would work with the current team to begin to recognise opportunities for product reformulations to include recipe improvements and focus on value optimisation. Within the role, you would be able to work collaboratively with key suppliers to build up new ground-breaking materials, which will be an integral part of the development process.

It would be preferable if you have a couple years experience already, taking products from concept to launch on a large scale, or a placement during your degree. You wouldn’t necessarily have to have a degree, if you can show how you have built and developed your skills in a work place environment. This company encourages a “one team approach”, meaning that positive change within the team will be championed, it is a really exciting opportunity to help build a forward thinking team. They favour internal progression and focus on personal development to bring the best out of every staff member.
