Technical & Quality
Sensory Technologist
North Island, NZ
Permanent Full Time

The Pride is Lion’s largest multi-beverage facility producing some of New Zealands most iconic beverages. Where better to make your next career move and join the Quality Team as a Sensory Technologist?

As the Sensory Technologist you’ll be running the sensory laboratory, and playing a critical role in ensuring our products meet all the required specifications so that we can deliver high quality products that delight our customers.

On a daily basis you’ll be co-ordinating sensory panels, sample collecting, maintaining and improving laboratory systems, ensuring all laboratory procedures are adhered to and managing reporting.

In addition to your great organisational skills, you’ll also be leveraging your problem-solving skills to trouble shoot any issues as they arise. You’ll be working with a range of teams both at The Pride and the Supply Chain Centre of Excellence, so your ability to collaborate and build relationships will also set you up for success in this role.

Beyond the essential daily activities, you’ll have the opportunity to learn and grow through being involved in projects; identifying and implementing continuous improvements and best practice; and working with the quality team on broader team initiatives. You’ll also be connected to the Lion site network through monthly forums with Centre of Excellence teams.


Due to the technical nature of parts of this role, tertiary qualifications in a food science or related discipline will be beneficial.

At Lion, we choose to be a leader in driving inclusion, diversity, and gender parity.
