Sell delicious products to top UK retailer...
This is a fantastic opportunity for an already successful Account Relationship Manager to develop their sales career within a fast-paced, progressive food business with category leading products.
The opportunity exists to manage a major UK retail account with a dedicated category in chilled and ambient. You will be site based in the North West and you will work as part of a small but successful commercial team reporting directly to the Commercial Controller.
- Are you passionate about food trends, innovative products, dine in / eat out?
- Do you have strong commercial negotiation skills and the ability to build strong partnership relationships with customers?
- Are you numerate, diligent, and switched on and do you have a strong work ethic?
As the ideal professional you will have worked within a food manufacturing business, however this role is about the right person with genuine potential and therefore you could have worked in health and beauty or other non-food FMCG markets as National Account Manager or National Account Executive ready for promotion.
In return for hard work this role will offer you a clear route for progression in to different categories and larger P&L, different retail accounts or even the opportunity to work with international accounts.
Culturally the key to success in this business is ambition, perseverance and being highly-organised with strong self-awareness.
If all these traits point back to you then get in touch with me, Abbi, to discuss. Send your CV or whatever you have and let's start talking.
