Technical Project Manager, Product Development: Beverages OR Dairy - International Food & Beverage Giant - Hamburg - €65,000-€75,000 + package

There are roles available within the Dairy and Beverage categories, so if your experience fits within one of these areas, apply today!

A leading B2B manufacturer within the Food & Beverage industry, with an enviable market position and a footprint across Europe, the US & the UK, are investing heavily in their R&D and Product Development functions and are seeking multiple technical specialists with experience in NPD (from trial to market launch stage) and formulations to join their team.

You will be working with internal teams and external customers (including Coca-Cola, Nestle & Danone) to confront the most complex challenges facing the food industry; developing great tasting products that are healthy whilst reducing troublesome ingredients including sugar and palm oil. They are a solutions oriented business and you can expect your role to be the same! This opportunity is perfect for technical specialists looking to take the step into a more exciting, commercial and collaborative role, which gives you the chance to work with the best brands in the world. The strategic goals for the business for 2022 and beyond focus on sustainability, innovation and transparency, which will allow end consumers to make informed decisions around what they consume. If these values align to yours, apply today!

Key skills & attributes required:

  • Experience working in product development within a food business centring on ingredients & formulations

  • Prior history of running new product trials and driving their journey to market

  • Strong communication and collaboration skills across different business units

  • Degree in Food Science or other scientific discipline is essential.

  • English language proficiency (written and verbal) is required.

  • A passion for producing sustainable and ethical products is essential!

If the prospect of working with iconic brands to revolutionise the development of the world's favourite food and beverage products excites you, if you are looking to step up into a role where you can lead on technical specifications as well as engaging internationally with consumers, and if you're looking to join a business that operates in accordance with innovation rather than on cost, send your CV to Alex at alex@pod-talent.com or apply through this page!
