Our International food manufacturing client have a newly created opportunity for a NPD manager to support the existing PD Technologist within this business due to expansion and growth.

This role would suit someone looking for autonomy and creative licence within a supportive environment. The organisation still has a true family run SME feel although they are part of a internationally recognised brand. This will suit a positive and ambitious candidate from either a Procurement NPD or Food Technologist background.

You will interact with internationally purchasing teams, group and local marketing departments, supply chain, production, distribution and site managers to devise, create, test and release new ambient products designed specifically for the Major supermarket and retail food market.

This excellent opportunity will in time offer to the right candidate greater opportunities within the wider business and if you were interested international opportunities if desired. Although no additional travel is required for this role.
