How you would contribute to the role:

 

If you enjoy a role that offers global exposures, and a pathway to leadership, this role may be for you!  You will lead global cross functional teams, working to bring new and updated food and nutrition products to market.  This role will provide indirect leadership exposures, but will also provide exposures to learn more about our global supply chain, and Research & Development.  Leading these project teams will require the ability to work collaboratively and influence without authority.  You will commonly manage 3 – 5 development projects at a time, demonstrating your ability to inspire and influence others, and spotlight your ability to drive decisions and meet deadlines.  

 

What skills and background will be important to be successful:

  • Minimum 5+ years’ experience in a role providing exposures to the product development process in Research & Development
  • Interest and proficiency in learning to lead a cross functional team
  • Experience leading and/or participating on project teams
  • Talent to communicate across cultures, with the ability to influence stakeholders
  • Strong organizational skills and follow through
  • Ability to prioritize and manage deliverables with competing deadlines
  • Strong sense of ownership for deliverables and a sense of urgency to promptly resolve issues
  • BS degree in Business, Supply Chain, or a related function
