Our Client

With a strong history and a recognised expert within the compliance sector our client can offer long term stability and skills development for an ambitious, successful quality professional.

The Role

We are searching for an experienced food technician who can demonstrate a strong knowledge of quality and assessment within the Food &/or Farm industry. You will be able to demonstrate knowledge of the application of product certification schemes and quality management systems. An existing expertise in ISO/FSSC 22000 is highly desirable. The successful candidate must have successfully completed a recognised course in HACCP. Any experience of specific schemes - Red Tractor, Halal, Soil Association etc. - will be very beneficial.

Based from home you will visit clients to conduct assessments and complete all follow up actions including reporting and client management. The assessment will often require utilising colleagues' expertise, necessitating the management of a small team on an ongoing adhoc basis, as well as managing budgets and administration.

The key requirement is a strong food and/or farm background, excellent communication skills, drive and enthusiasm, a passion for the role and the ability to develop knowledge, expertise and credibility across different schemes.

The role will involve extensive travel across the UK and regular overnight stays, it is therefore essential you have flexibility in your lifestyle to allow regular travel. As your remit covers the whole of the UK, you will ideally be based 'centrally' with good access to the motorway network.

This is an excellent opportunity for a certification professional to utilise their management systems and audit experience in a new direction in a challenging and rewarding role. The client can offer a salary of £45,000 plus benefits, negotiable on experience.
