You eat to live, right? How about eating, becomes your living?! It sounds absurd, but there's truth to it.
What do we want? A foodie.
Someone impassioned about all things tasty, delicious, delightful and tantalising when it comes to food. You might be just starting out in the 'world of work' and this could be your first role, or maybe your second or third. Why not make a career out of something you really love?
Many of us have worked in kitchens, behind bars or front of house, serving customers at some point, even if only as a part-time job.
Perhaps you've been deterred from the unsociable hours, or rates of pay? Well, this role could well be the answer...
Would you like to flourish in this industry, but explore a different side to it?
Combining your experiences so far, along with your work ethic and joy for good food, you could embark on this new career move within Commercial Sales and Account Management for a bright, dynamic and growing company.
For our client, based in West London, you will be responsible for nurturing accounts with some of the best restaurants in the capital. Your patch is West London (come on!) and you are entrusted with being the 'go-to' person who engages with Chefs, Restaurant Managers and even Owners, when it comes to some of the finest Mediterranean and Middle Eastern food products available.
You'll provide the perfect accompaniments to their menus, through taste panels, as you present ways in which to compliment their already superb cuisine offering, making it commercially viable for them too.
Your customers will be calling you, whilst they refer you to their peers and friends across the capital.
All we ask from you, for this career opportunity is...
- Driving license
- Solid communication skills - confident, but not arrogant!
- The ability to listen (crucial)
- A keenness researching food trends
- Computer literacy (Outlook and Excel specifically) and...
- The desire to entertain customers, engage with a network of food professionals and provide an exemplary service at all times.
So if you have recently graduated from either Uni, the kitchen brigade or from general life in the real world, and you love food and all its pleasures... get in touch.
