The Company
The Collective is a Kiwi dairy company taking on the world. Since being founded by two Kiwi chefs in 2009, they've been driven to create the best tasting yoghurt on the market. Their dairy products can now be found in fridges across the globe from United Kingdom to the Asia Pacific region. To continue to thrive requires more than great ideas though.

  • In-depth knowledge and experience re HACCP, GMP, RMP, NCR investigation and resolution, and auditing - ideally within (but not limited to) a dairy processing environment.
  • Well-developed problem solving, organisational and planning skills, and good attention to detail.
  • Initiative, ability to deal with ambiguity and decisive decision making - able to make judgment calls within a fast-paced and dynamic production environment. You act with urgency while maintaining a positive, "can-do" attitude.
  • Tertiary Qualification: Ideally in the food technology, food science or microbiology.
