Are you someone who is able to understand a business strategy, then take this and create clear deliverable plans of actions and ensure these are executed across multiple stakeholder teams?


If the answer is yes, then at Burtons Biscuits we have a great role to join us as our NPD Controller. You’ll be predominately based from our head office in St Albans, with some travel needed to our fantastic bakeries across the UK.


We love baking great tasting biscuits, and innovation is something that excites us, from the next taste sensation, to how we can manufacture smarter but also respond to a number of important health trends within food.


As our NPD Controller, you will report into the Head of Product Innovation, making sure the execution of the strategy is delivered and also presenting the ‘how’ along with the key timeframes. You will also provide and present updates into the senior leadership teams, part of which will be proactively recommending solutions to any deliverable challenges you may face.


At Burtons Biscuits we manufacture a number of amazing brands such as Maryland Cookies, Jammie Dodgers, Wagon Wheels, Thomas Fudges & Patterson Shortbread to name a few. But this isn’t all we do, we have a great partnership with Mars Confectionary & we are also a key player in manufacturing Retailer Own Brand biscuits. You will need to be comfortable presenting deliverable plans to key customers to outline your proposed road map.


So what else will you need?

To be considered for this role, you will need leadership experience in managing teams that have delivered NPD or R&D projects within FMCG manufacturing. While food experience is a plus, it isn’t essential to have experience in this sector.


What is essential for when you come to work with Burtons Biscuits, is that you have lots of energy, bring passion into the role, and have excellent communication skills. Attention to detail will be key, as well as the ability to produce detailed project reports.


If you are looking for a new challenge in a fun, fast paced and progressive business then we have the opportunity for you!!
