Summary

Can use creative marketing flair to win new business long-term?

Job Description

Unique and exciting opportunity is an overused term when it comes to advert writing but this role is genuinely something fresh and different for a commercial role within food manufacturing. The opportunity is distinctive in its mix of business development and customer engagement and marketing content creation and development of go to market plan based on trends and category analysis.

There has been a proactive shift at board level in this business and now they ask the questions where do we want to go? What business do we want to win? And how can we influence the market? This role allows you to put your own stamp on the strategy; create relevant content and product innovation for the UK region and long term grow a team.

This mix of personality and business approach is key to developing potential and long-term success in this role.

You will be extrovert, optimistic and outgoing - yet still creative and analytical with strong attention to detail. Essentially you will drive new business development by translating consumer and market trends in to an actionable "go to market" strategy.

  • You will have spent the last few years working within a commercial capacity for a food manufacturer, food processor or foodservice business with knowledge of both branded and private label solutions.
  • Educated to degree level or equivalent
  • Use of consumer insight tools

You will demonstrate a flair for identifying category and segment growth, using workshops and trade shows to generate new business opportunities working closely with cross functional teams including Product development & innovation, product management, sales and culinary teams.

If you feel your food career to date captures the right mix of sales and marketing activities I’d love to talk with you further.

Please get in touch with me, Abbi, to discuss further or send your CV for review and let’s start talking.
