Customer Technologist - Fresh Produce
£30,000 - £35,000

This is a fantastic opportunity. And I can walk you through exactly why.

If you combine the following raw materials:

  • One of the UK's leading horticulture businesses (with multiple sites all around the UK, a worldwide supplier base and top-tier customer range)
  • A new role created due to internal promotion within the business
  • A hiring manager who is flexible with his expectations of the "ideal candidate"
  • A Monday-Friday office-based technical role
  • Solid benefits, including 33 days leave & up to 5% matched pension

You now have the specification for a fantastic opportunity. So, what are you waiting for?

Our client is one of the major players within the horticultural industry in the UK. They've held this position for many years and don't intend to give it up anytime soon!

At their Spalding site, I have a vacancy for a Customer Technologist to handle the technical relationship with a major customer. You don't *need* to already have technologist experience to be considered for this one. My client is seeking someone with expert knowledge in fresh produce manufacturing & supply, who has had some experience in dealing with retail customers.

Examples of your experience could be:

  • Working in Quality/QA/QC within fresh produce, and you've had some exposure to retail customers
  • Working in a national accounts role within fresh produce, and you fancy a move into technical
  • You're a technical assistant, technical co-ordinator or similar (within fresh) and you want to move into a more appealing business

But the basic qualifications are:

  • Excellent communications skills.
  • Fresh produce technical knowledge, data analysis of complaints, KPI, QMS, artwork, specs
  • An engaging personality & ability to build solid relationships

We are hoping to shortlist immediately, so please apply now for immediate consideration!

Recruitment as it should be.
