In Research, Development & Quality (RD&Q), your skills can be the special ingredient that brings our brands to life. As part of a fantastic team of scientists, engineers and nutritionists, you’ll work tirelessly on product design or development, process development, quality, nutrition, sensory and food safety aspects to ensure we deliver a consistent, delightful consumer experience. RD&Q is where you’ll turn great ideas into brilliant brands.


Purpose of Role 
Translating complex technical challenges into computer simulations to enable rapid, high quality innovation across our chocolate, biscuit, gum & candy categories. Specialising in heat and fluild flow CFD simulations. 
Main Responsibilities 

  1. Works with engineers & scientists to define complex technical challenges to be solved
  2. Defines needs for data to build the simulation and works with analytical team or external organisations to collect the information required, this may require making and measuring products themselves
  3. Uses appropriate software tools to build simulations, including model construction, meshing, solvers, and post-processing
  4. Ensure simulations are validated against experimental data, this may include running or managing the experiments or trials required
  5. Communicates outputs from the simulation and works with engineering and R&D teams to ensure learning is embedded in the business quickly to speed up innovation and optimization
  6. Write and builds best practice documentation from learnings discovered
  7. Develops simplified software tools for others to use based on the simulations
  8. Researches and keeps up to date with developments in simulation and material characterization
  9. Supervises research projects to develop further simulation techniques or material characterization, both internally and externally
  10. Maintains and develops simulation resources including hardware and software updates, working with IT department to maintain security and back-up systems
  11. Other R&D support as required 


  1. Bachelordegree or higher in a STEM subject
  2. 5+ years experience of Computational Fluid Dynamics simulation, from defining the problem though to validation and communicating output, ideally using Ansys software
  3. Strong fundamental understanding of rheology, and heat & mass transfer 
  4. Ability to communicate complex problems simply to a non-technical audience with business relevant context
  5. Global experience and additional language preferred
