Senior Specification Technologist – Flexible location

Department: Central Technical
Location: Yorkshire (Selby)
Closing date: 21st January 2022

Westmill is a specialist food supplier whose market leading brands include Elephant Atta, Amoy, Asli Atta, Lucky Boat, Patak’s, Pride, Rajah and Tolly Boy. Found in the best professional and home kitchens, our brands are respected for their quality and authenticity. Our vision is to be the market leader in every kitchen for trusted, authentic global foods, through working with our trade partners which include wholesale as well as cash and carry, food service, grocery and B2B channels. Westmill is a friendly, culturally, and ethnically diverse environment, with a unique family feeling where no one feels like the new person for long and everybody has the chance to make a real difference to the business.


What does the role offer:

Reporting directly to the Technical Services Controller, you will be responsible for all site and customer’s specifications for both new and existing products ensuring all BRC, industrial and retailer requirements are documented. This is a broad and challenging role where cross-functional working is key. Travelling to other Westmill sites will be required.

Who are we looking for:

The ideal candidate will have in-depth knowledge & experience with specification systems, (e.g. Hamilton Grant, Micros, M&S) customer requirements & customer codes of practice as well as factory processes (e.g. HACCP). You will possess a high level of attention to detail, excellent organisational skills with the ability to prioritise and meet multiple deadlines.

We are looking for a real team player with excellent communication skills, who is pro-active and motivated to deliver to consistently high standards. You will be comfortable liaising with customers and managing their high expectations. Your analytical and thorough approach would make you a real asset to the team. Previous experience of working in a food manufacturing business is highly desirable. Knowledge and skills are important, but we are equally looking for someone who will fit in well with the team and will keep their positive and vibrant attitude in a fast-paced environment with some challenging situations.

What’s in it for you:

In addition to a competitive remuneration and benefits package, working at Westmill offers a great opportunity to gain fantastic experience, really build your development and ultimately grow your career, in the UK or internationally either within Westmill or Associated British Foods, our parent company.


Westmill is committed to promoting a diverse and inclusive working environment – a place where we can all be ourselves and succeed on merit.
