In classic Noma style, this is a full time pioneering role, at the coalface of the new Nordic movement. The lucky person that lands the role won't be stuck behind a desk but ready to "scour Scandinavia" and unearth new and exciting ingredients that the region has to offer. "This person will need to find inspiration in nooks and crannies—to build relationships with farmers, fishers, herders and craftspeople to link noma to the unique aliments they produce" the job description reads.
"It will require plenty of travel, resourcefulness, collaboration, organization and clear communication with Noma’s creative kitchens, all while planning months and even years out to make sure ingredients are in the ground or on the way before each season starts."
