Specifications Technologist

Department: Technical
Location: Manchester (Trafford Park)
Closing date: 26th July 2019

Westmill is a specialist food supplier whose market leading brands include Amoy, Asli Atta, Daawat, Elephant 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 and our vision is to inspire our communities with colourful food, through working with our trade partners in the ethnic and grocery channels. Working for Westmill means you belong to an entrepreneurial and culturally diverse business that values high performance, collaboration and the desire to make a difference.

What does this role offer?

Reporting directly to the Technical Controller Supply Chain 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.

What are we looking for?

The ideal candidate will preferably have experience of retailer specification systems, customer requirements & customer codes of practice as well as factory processes. 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 high standards.  You will be comfortable spending your time within the factory (when required), office and liaising with customers/suppliers on and off site and your analytical and thorough approach would make you a real asset to the team. Experience in working in a food factory environment is highly desirable.


Knowledge and skills are important but we are equally looking for someone who will fit well with the team and will keep their positive and vibrant attitude in a fast paced environment with some challenging situations.
