New Product Developer
We're proud of our products
And rightly so. They’ve won us three Great Taste Awards so far. Plus thousands of fans. We also know that to keep our customers happy and expand our product range, we’ve got to keep things fresh.
Which is why we’re looking for you. A creative mind who can inspire the next collection of Heriots products (and our employees too), while making sure we stay true to our commitment to quality, creativity, innovation and market leadership.
You'll need proven experience in these areas...
Refreshing the look, taste and feel of existing products to ensure they exceed customer expectations and never feel old and out of date.
Developing new products to help Heriots better serve the needs of its existing customers and win over new customers.
Developing seasonal ranges by adding decorative uplifts to existing products in order to gain audience and media attention.
Continually monitoring the competitive landscape to ensure Heriots is keeping pace with or leading innovation and trends.
Seeking out fresh inspiration for innovation from other markets around the world.
Helping Heriots to carve out a niche for itself - an unmistakably Heriots style of baking and aesthetic that is fresh, appealing and unique. Crucially, the aesthetic must translate well on Instagram.
Developing and taking ownership of a highly versatile, single serving, hero product. Hummingbird has its cupcakes. Cutter & Squidge has its Biskies. Heriots currently has a gap on its shelves.
A rewarding role
You'll have our 11,000 sq. ft. state-of-the-art production facility at your disposal. With best-in-class equipment and facilities, it's everything you need to set your creativity free.
Because we've got our sights set high, we invite all our employees to use their skills and talents to enact real change inside our business. We encourage everyone to develop their career in their chosen field. If there's a specialism you'd like to explore, we'll help you do just that.
