Summary

Fantastic opportunity to join a leading Food Manufacturer in a retailer facing role, helping to promote category leading products.

Job Description

We know that this doesn't sound like your usual Interim Account Manager assignment, due to the fact that the client is offering pro rata rather than the usual day rate. It therefore could be more ideally suited to those that are immediately available and want to break into the interim market. This nine month maternity cover contract could be your ticket.

Our client has an enviable position in the market supplying the UK food retailers. This assignment is a great opportunity to work closely with a major food retailer to develop and grow the account at a strategically important time.

Ideally for this Interim Account Manager position, you will have worked within the food industry, as this shows an understanding of the pace involved. Experience of own label chilled food would be an advantage.

Can you highlight examples of delivering within fast-paced sales environments? Of supporting the commercial team to deliver account growth, in partnership with the retailer? Have you been the main point of contact with the buying and technical retail team? If so, this could be your next assignment.

It's essential you are bright, quick thinking, numerically strong and able to make decisions at speed.

This Interim Account Manager role reports into the Commercial Manager and is based on site and with regular visits to the retailers' stores, so you must be flexible to travel.

If this assignment sounds of interest and you are available with the necessary skills and experience please apply now.
