The specialist R&D function here at Pod has now been up and running for over 12 months and we have had some great success working with some awesome companies including Danone, Molson Coors, MPM Pet food and Zaluvida amongst others.
We’ve found that there has been a real appetite from both clients and candidates to work with a dedicated firm working exclusively in R&D - we are building great networks in key functional areas including:
• Product development• Sensory Analysis• Consumer Insights • Packaging • Open innovation
With a real international emphasis we have worked with people as far afield as China, Denver and Poland as well as the much closer to home in Manchester and London - the R&D candidate pool is truly global and we pride ourselves on finding the right person for the job wherever they happen to live!
To add to the international flavour of the desk we have just hired Joao Carvalho who is joining us all the way from sunny Brazil where he was a lawyer before switching careers to recruitment. He is beyond excited to get started and I’m sure will be in touch with some of you in the not too distant future.
With our initial focus in FMCG both Caroline and Joao are looking forward to building on the success we’ve already had and working with a whole host of new and exciting clients over the coming months. If you are an R&D professional in that sector we’d love to hear from you to discuss your own career plans or your team recruitment strategy.
