NPD Manager (FTC)
NPD's been a little slow recently hasn't it?
Understandably though. You've probably noticed that we're in the middle of what's called a "global pandemic".
And that's meant that a lot of food businesses out there have had to focus on numbers with everyone buying more, rather than bringing new stuff to the market.
Other areas like FTG and foodservice completely dropped off, though they're starting to make a comeback now and will hopefully continue to do so.
This company has remained pretty solid throughout. They're mainly B2B and their food ends up in UK retailers, so the demand is there, and for you the job security is there.
You'll be in charge of the NPD department on site, from recipe creation all through to launch and everything in between. It's not a massive department so you will be hands on, and it won't be without it's challenges as they can be working on a vast number of projects all at once.
Next year in particular you'll be helping them grow the vegan side of the business which there's obviously a massive market for right now.
This isn't going to be your forever job as it's an FTC, but will take you through to early 2022 and will give you a good platform for whatever comes after that.
You don't need any specific product experience. They're more interested in the right attitude. It's a very fast-paced environment so they need someone who can keep up!
