I’m very happy to be supporting this global business who are hiring a Senior Flavorist (Flavor chemist) to their global R&D team.

This is a great opportunity for an experienced flavorist with a passion for developing new flavours- working on existing and new innovation projects and driving customer satisfaction across the product range. It would be a good chance for someone currently at a flavor house to move to a business to consumer environment and continue to develop your skill set with a core product portfolio. This role is part of a growing team and we could consider someone with at least 3-4 years experience, although there is also excellent opportunity for more experienced professionals who are looking to develop a more research focused position.

For this role we are looking for the following background:

  • Prior experience in flavor development within either food or beverage.

  • Degree in a technical discipline- food science, chemistry, biology or another scientific field.

  • Hands on experience in flavor delivery systems and evaluation of new flavor materials.

  • Ideally certification from Society of Flavor Chemists.

This role is open to re-locaters however we can only consider people who have existing right to work in the US.
