Job Description

Our client is widely regarded as being at the pinnacle of the food industry in terms of both technical initiatives and food innovation. Where others follow, this company has always set the standards and will continue to do so, by building a team containing arguably the most passionate, committed and knowledgeable Technical personnel anywhere to be seen in the UK. Offering a wealth of prospects to develop your career, amazing training, and the opportunity to really drive sales through your professional contribution, this is a business that very few true “foodies” could ever turn down if the opportunity arose. That opportunity is here now.

We’re looking for an experienced Technical Manager to deliver strategic technical initiatives in an assigned category. Whilst experience in a couple of different food categories would be preferable, it is not essential – highly skilled category specialists would also be of great interest.

You will:

-          Ensure safe and quality products through strong supplier collaboration

-          Source new suppliers where necessary

-          Maintain excellent standards of product quality

-          Ensure legal compliance with all packaging

-          Aim to reduce customer complaints

-          Represent the business externally on industry issues

-          Work with Buyers and NPD teams to deliver the category plan


What we’re looking for:

-          An unrivalled passion for all things food

-          A degree in a relevant Food-related subject

-          Demonstrable commercial awareness

-          A mindset of never wanting to stand still – always challenging “the norm”

-          Natural communication skills with the ability to build instant rapport

-          5+ years as a Technical Manager, having progressed quickly in your career to date

-          Achievements that you’re proud to shout about!
