Zachary Daniels are working with a diverse business on a newly created role to head up the manufacturing and food service side of the business across a number of units. This long established business with a national footprint operate across retail, wholesale, food service and manufacture food products from various units across the North West.

As this is a newly created role in a diverse business we are looking to speak with people from different backgrounds but primarily from food production, NPD and retail. There is a strong and talented team in place at each site so this role is about leading and coordinating the various units to optimise the output and production. This will require someone with the ability to work cross functionally with the retail and commercial teams.

We are looking to speak with people possibly operating at Head of Operations/ Food Service, or Business Unit Controller Level but equally open to conversations with strong experience in the following;

  • Passionate about food
  • Experience of small scale, short-run production
  • Multi site management experience at senior level
  • Creative and passionate about NPD
