Liquid Development Technologist - Ingredient Applications and Capabilities

Hemel Hempstead

Our Research & Development function is dramatically growing here at Britvic. Following a £240 million investment in new, state of the art production facilities we are looking for a Liquid Development Technologist who will help us take liquid development to a new level. Britvic is aiming to push the boundaries with what we can do with our products using cutting edge technology to influence and inspire our well loved brands to become even better. This role gets to work really closely with all Technical departments, particularly with our ingredients team to develop new to Britvic and new to market drinks. We have great opportunities to influence marketing, supply chain and external suppliers to be truly innovative and guide our brands successes.

The role of the Ingredients applications and capabilities team is to identify, investigate and apply new ingredients, and product testing capabilities, which provide competitive advantage through improved liquids and creation of new product opportunities. The team is also responsible for ensuring that Britvic’s products continually use the most suitable ingredients, which add the best value to our products in terms of consumer experience and technical suitability.

As Liquid Development Technologist you will have the opportunity to embed industry leading technology and scientific understanding into Britvic. You will help provide a pipeline of qualified ingredients and product testing methodologies. This will help create stand out product launches as well as allowing for better product performance, sensory enhancements, new claims, cost optimisation, development efficiency or sustainable supply, within the existing portfolio.

You will also help ensure that Britvic’s liquid development capabilities are world class by introducing world class testing methods, development processes and liquid development training.

What we’re looking for in a Liquid Development Technologist:

  • A degree in a scientific or technical discipline (HNC or equivalent minimum) preferably with a Food Science bias or equivalent experience
  • Working knowledge of food and beverage raw materials, production techniques and use of laboratory based equipment
  • Demonstrable experience within a food or beverage development environment (Liquid development, formulations, sensory and processing experience is desirable)

If this sounds like you, then we’d love to hear from you. This exciting role could give you the opportunity to play an integral part in the future growth of one of the biggest soft drink suppliers in the UK.

Britvic is a very exciting and supportive place to be, with award winning brands, a clear vision for growth, a focus on personal development and an open and honest culture. We offer a comprehensive package for this position with excellent benefits and you’d be working with talented individuals in a vibrant workplace.





We’re committed to providing equal opportunities to all applicants and employees – in fact this is at the heart of our company culture and values, and we welcome applications from candidates with diverse backgrounds.
