REF: AJT45810Apply for this position
A Head of Sales required for a new European plant-based brand that are building their UK business and team. Hybrid working with a London office.
New SME start-up with an established European brand looking to launch their range of products tailored for our markets in the UK & Ireland and need a Head of Sales to join the journey.
This opportunity will go quickly, as it’s the perfect role for you if you are entrepreneurial and want to be part of a start-up and grow a sales team around you and the business success. You will initially have two direct reports but there is a clear plan in place to grow the commercial team over the next 12-18 months.
This range of meat-free and diary-free products are perfectly suited for the rapidly expanding plant-based aisles in retail as well as foodservice/QSR and B2B added value. Discussions are already under way with a number of customers across numerous channels but this role is about defining the sales strategy and implementing the go to market sales plan.
As a SME start-up this role requires not only a leader and mentor for team members but equally as important is a "do-er". You will be happy to be in front of customers selling and personally delivering sales growth through your personal achievement, your network, and your expertise in food manufacturing sales.
To be successful as Head of Sales you must
- Be currently or have recently been working in food manufacturing – chilled or frozen would be ideal
- Have had experience across multiple channels including both Retail AND foodservice
- Have previous leadership experience of Salespeople
Finally, you will be ambitious, driven, flexible in your approach and have the ability to manage the many moving targets involved in a start-up business.
If you are excited by this fantastic Head of Sales opportunity, please apply with your CV today or contact me Abbi to discuss further.
