We are looking for a young, energetic, motivated and committed person with some experience in New Product Development in food. We need someone urgently with an appetite for a serious challenge and a skin thick enough to deal with all sorts of curve balls, hurricanes and even ocassional slippery surfaces.
A professional qualification in Food Technology is essential as is your own transport and verifiable references. An ability to handle constructive criticism is vital and ‘precious’ as a character trait will not score points. Being able to bake a good chocolate cake will help though…
You need to live in Cape Town or surrounds. You will need a valid passport. You will need a sense of humour. You will not need a torch or a change of clothes. Enjoying Monty Python could help too but being able to quote from The Holy Grail every now and then is useful..
The hours are long and the conditions are often strange, bordering on peculiar – we work on an ‘Anything is possible. Anything can be done‘ basis. If your glass is half-empty, don’t bother, you won’t last.
The post is available for training and handover immediately.
We TRULY wish we did not have to advertise this now though. The boots that require filling are very special, very unique and very difficult to replace. You can expect lots of ‘Oh, we all miss (that person).’ That said, if you are regarded by your friends as extremely talented, a little bit crazy and boundlessly energetic, and you love the idea of creating and developing new food products more than you need oxygen, then apply within.
