Roles like this are truly once in a career and we’re looking for someone with a particular set of skills to become an integral part of a team that will see the company grow in size over the next few years.

Firstly, you have to love desserts.  That’s non-negotiable.

You’ll also need a relevant Degree in Food Science or similar and have a background from a similar environment where you’ve seen the Product Development process all the way from bench to Director and be able to troubleshoot anything that comes up along the way.  

Being hands-on is essential and you’ll be used to using your creative knowledge and bringing your own trouble shooting skills to come up with solutions and ideas to develop new products for in-house brands and well known, high street clients to strict specifications and cost restraints.

As well as leading a small team, you’ll be able to work closely with the management team within a BRC environment and be comfortable reporting to the directors and the tech and productions.

The role boasts and highly competitive salary of up to £35k and the chance to be part of a company that’s going only going to grow.
