How often do you think about your future? And if you do, how often do you take action to make it happen?

Job Description

If the answer to the above two questions is never, this Commercial Manager role probably isn't for you as this company recruits thinking about the future as well as now. However chances are, if you are still reading this, you do and in that case this role certainly will be worth considering.

Why? Simply put, this is the standout performer in its individual category and the wider sector for career development. As an example, the reason for this vacancy is the person currently performing the role (successfully I might add, so you will get a nice welcome from the customer, not a frosty stare) has been promoted internally. In fact, this happens so regularly (over half their roles are filled by their own employees), they think it is the norm and forget to boast about it - but from the outside looking in it is genuinely impressive.

But realistically, no one takes a risk to move roles for something that only *should* happen. So, what is good about this Commercial Manager role and why should you apply?

  • Category lead, help shape and guide the customers shelves

  • Just achieved record sales, you will join a positive environment

  • Personable and enjoyable work environment, because no one wants to go to work and be miserable

  • A manager that gets the balance right between hands-off encouragement but support when needed and who understands the sector

What is expected from you? Ownership of the category and hit your numbers. If you do that already, and want to do it on a bigger scale with more reward, have a chat with these guys and see if you like them - most do.

So, if you have own label food/drink experience with one of the major multiples, send your CV through, as they are keen to move quickly, or give me a call today on....
