I need aspiring and professional commercial candidates that are looking to take their next step in an exciting food sales position.

Job Description

Have you started your commercial career within the food sector?
Are you an aspiring National Account Manager of the future? And is this the time right to explore the opportunities for progression that exist in the current market?

I am currently representing several of the best names and brands in the food industry and what is absolutely clear is that there is a genuine shortage of dynamic junior commercial candidates on the upwards curve of their career . We have customers ranging from large and well-established branded and private label businesses, to entrepreneurial start-up companies about to enter rapid periods of growth.

I recently placed a great candidate with 2 years' experience working for a premium food manufacturer supporting the sales development and account management of a major retail customer. Although he was not desperate to move, he knew it was the right time to look for a new challenge and the opportunity to increase his earnings and develop his career. I could have placed this candidate four or five times within my existing client base and therefore I have an immediate requirement for similar people of this calibre. Those clients are waiting for me to show them the best commercial talent I can find. Is that you?

Key skills our clients require are:

  • Commercial negotiation at senior levels
  • Hunger and appetite for new business and account development
  • Category management awareness
  • Knowledge of supply chain and NPD issues
  • Passion for food and the industry

Also you must be bright, ambitious, energetic and have a natural entrepreneurial flair.

If you are interested in finding out more about the type of live and current opportunities that exist within my client base for your experience then we should be talking. If you register your CV profile you can rest assured your details will not be passed to any companies without your permission.

If you would rather an informal, and of course confidential discussion then feel free to call me on 01625 560778.

Either way do not delay your response as we have career development opportunities for you available today.
