QLD - Ref. JO-2101-2722

Our client is a well-established, Queensland iconic business that manufacturers and supplies a range of products, which includes confectionery and beverages to the Australian and overseas markets. As part of their new strategy, they are now looking for an experienced Product Development Technologist to join their team.

Reporting directly to the CEO, you will be responsible for reformulation of existing products, as well as developing brand new products. It is both, a hands-on role as well as strategic. You will have an additional resource that will assist in developing samples. As this is a newly created role, you will also develop and implement necessary procedures and processes to ensure timelines are met. You will liaise with co-packers and co-manufacturers and will also have an opportunity to develop a brand new product category. 

As an experienced R&D Technologist, you hold a degree in Food Science / Technology and have a demonstrated track record of developing and launching products to retail. We are looking for someone with experience in beverages, cordials, fruit processing, and health foods, who is a self-started, has great interpersonal skills, and also a food chemistry whizz. 

This is an excellent opportunity for someone that wants to introduce innovation to well-established and well-known products and extend the product lines. There is also a very good opportunity to develop a brand new category. The business never had a food tech before and hence, this is a great chance for someone who would love to establish the R&D function. The role is based on the Sunshine Coast and as such you either need to relocate or live in Northern Suburbs of Brisbane.
