Do you ever feel like your job is a bit stagnant, but you’re trapped by your experience?

If you’re working in food manufacturing, in NPD (or even technical!), and you’d like a move into the commercial side, then this could be for you.

I’m working with a company who make a super interesting product; they’re a small team and part of a huge global business; their customers are super interesting and make loads of products which are delicious and innovative and change all the time.

The small team means you get to work in a company where you can actually make a difference.

The huge parent company means you get the support and the backing and the processes and stability of someone massive.

They’re not looking for sales experience; they’re looking for desire and heart and guts and someone who wants to be in the commercial team. But knows NPD or technical.

Sound like you? Or someone you maybe know?

Stay tuned.

The boring normal advert shall now commence:


  • Develop new products and business initiatives, working in close association with the customer, as well as internal production and commercial departments.
  • Conduct assessment of both internal and competitor products to define, and where necessary to improve, product performance characteristics.
  • Work proactively with customers on the development of new products and/or technical solutions to meet customer needs and or/changing trends within the food, feed, and technical industries.

  • Coordinate various reports, including financial and credit reporting.
  • Communicate regularly with the commercial manager about sales and customer issues.
  • Work as part of the commercial team to drive sales and profits.

Ideal Candidate:

  • Technical knowledge of the bakery/food manufacturing industry, including plant bakery knowledge.
  • Good understanding of Microsoft applications, including Excel, Word, and PowerPoint.
  • A minimum of bachelor’s degree or equivalent in either business studies, food technology, or a similar related subject.
  • Working knowledge of SAP.


  • Competitive package – salary £39-45k, DOE.
  • Chance to work for a market-leading, multi-national business.
  • Small, close-knit team.
  • Fast-paced environment – perfect for someone who likes a challenge!
