Seabrook Crisps is currently undergoing significant change. The business has recently exited PE ownership and is now owned by Calbee, Inc. Over the past 6 years, and under a newly formed management team, the business has been turned around, launched new products and rebranded others and invested heavily in its manufacturing operation. All of this whilst selling the business for the previous family owners, attracting investment from Lloyds Development Capital and recently moving into large overseas Corporate ownership.

Now with group backing and the stability of an established management team, growth is the main agenda. As such an outstanding Finance Director is required to supplement the existing team and play a pivotal role in developing the business over the coming years. Exciting times are ahead and we need someone truly exceptional to join the team and help realise our stretching growth plans.
