Head of Technical

This job is now CLOSED – for similar roles please check the Technical function.

Ice cream tasting in Italy, sampling citrus in Spain and Portugal, taking technical innovation to the next level. Are you ready for this?

Fresh, natural, healthy food, using science and innovation, pushing boundaries to surprise and delight customers and consumers. All ingredients are ethically sourced, and suppliers are highly regulated, which is of course where you come in.

This business is going through change. We placed the new Operations Director to do exactly that. He has identified the need for more technical oomph (not a technical term) hence this newly created position.

Heading up a team of 11 which includes Technical/NPD Manager, QSM, Spec Tech, Technologists and QAs, you’ll redefine the technical strategy to align with the growth plans for the business. It’s a hands-on role, you’ll be customer-facing, visiting suppliers in Europe on a regular basis – ice cream tasting in Italy anyone? Products are also sourced from Spain and Portugal, where the latter is also home to one of their sister sites.

As a member of the Senior Leadership Team, you’ll impact company growth through strong customer influence and an innovative technical strategy. Manufacturing yoghurts, drinks, soups, and desserts, with dairy-free and plant-based alternatives too requires a breadth of technical and micro knowledge across chilled categories.

You’ll be a natural and influential leader, motivating and inspiring with a carrot rather than a stick. Your influencing skills will also carry over to customer relations with key retailer technical contacts.

To find out more about this great opportunity, send your CV to me and I’ll be in touch. Or for a confidential conversation, call me (Alison) today.
