Project managing the NPD process for this exciting, diverse product range.

If you are a foodie, who understands the processes that a product goes through to get to its successful launch, then read on...

Our client is a multi-faceted food manufacturer, making a diverse range of outstandingly delicious products for its customer. There is no shortage of innovation in the business but what is needed is someone who can take a concept and run with it. The objective is to project manage the development across multiple disciplines within the business. Marketing, Procurement, Production, Technical are all departments that the Product Development Project Manager must liaise with effectively. It is essential that no time is lost between the initial idea being given to you and the product launch.

As the Product Development Project Manager you will be the person responsible for taking a product and running with it. Liaising across all the different departments within the business and ensuring that timescales are achievable, but adhered to strictly, so all launches occur on time and to specification.

The Product Development Project Manager will be:

  • Influential across the business
  • Persistent - not taking no for an answer
  • Organised

You will be able to juggle many balls in the air and enjoy the challenge of being the 'go to' person for all new products. Possessing an in-depth knowledge of the processes involved in manufacturing a wide variety of products, you will be comfortable in planning realistic timescales that can be met.

This is not a job for the faint-hearted. You must have already worked in a project management role within the food industry. If you love a challenge and your raison d'etre is to organise, organise, organise, then we would love to speak with you!

To assist you searching for a role by location - we have added a generic postcode, when uploading the advert, that designates the centre of the county in which this job is found. You may not see this on certain job boards.
