Development Chef opportunity with a genuine Food Service market leader

We are a dedicated foodservice division within one the largest foodservice manufacturers both in the UK and globally. We manufacturer many of the world’s leading brands including many held in high regard within the foodservice sector. We specialise in a product range providing culinary back of house (BOH) and retail front of house (FOH) solutions that allow foodservice customers to grow their business.

In the dynamic and innovative area of Foodservice, we have strong reach into international and national chain accounts together with a strong presence across independent, single unit outlets.
However, a gap has been identified in reaching regional chains, and these offer an important area of growth for the foodservice division.

We are extremely passionate about our brands with Foodservice and are seeking to attract a strong candidate with a culinary background to support with NPD and promotion of our culinary brands within a commercial environment.

This is an exciting position based from our Head Office but also with a strong Field based presence.
You will be responsible for providing the leading edge for menu development and concept design/implementation across the UK.
This is a varied position due to our wide range of brands across all areas of the menu so leans towards candidates who are extremely foodie and creative in their approach.
You will work within our team in order to introduce innovative product and menu ideas which our sales and marketing teams can in turn bring to the Foodservice sector.
The emphasis is on quality products and dishes made with premium ingredients, but you will also focus on our company ethics of sustainability and reducing environmental impact through wastage.

We are ideally seeking to speak to proven sales professionals with catering qualification and a developed and extensive knowledge of the Foodservice sector.

• Candidates must be qualified chef/caters to NVQ Level 2/3 or above.
• Candidates must have be able to demonstrate hands on kitchen experience, preferably within Premium establishments involving menu planning, for example Michelin or Rosette level kitchens, or with high level contract catering.
• Candidates with currently working in Development Chef positions will be of particular interest.
• Candidates from a field sales background with chef qualifications and culinary experience will also be welcomed.

This role provides a fantastic benefits package, but also excellent career prospects for the successful individual.
