Key Account Manager required to manage blue chip food accounts! Any packaging manufacturing background considered as product training can be provided!

Job Description

A specialist in the design and manufacturer of bespoke Printed Folding Cartons for the food industry, this is a business with a well-earned reputation for creativity, innovation, quality and service. Exporting globally, they utilise their wealth of technical expertise to adapt to the ever-changing demands of international markets.

Add to all of this the stability of a long-established, independent business with a very low turnover of staff…what’s not to like?!

From day one as the new Key Account Manager, you will be allocated some prestigious food accounts to manage and develop, in addition to a target for new business. Due to the often challenging nature of blue chip food accounts, it is important that you have managed similar clients in your current or recent roles.

You don’t have to be an expert in Cartons, product training can be provided for candidates from other packaging manufacturing backgrounds such as Plastics, Flexibles or Labels. The majority of these accounts are based in the South East, so if you live in this area, this would be an advantage but it is not essential.

To turn this opportunity into a reality you must:

  • Have experience working in sales within packaging manufacturing
  • Have a proven background managing blue chip FMCG/retail accounts
  • Be able to demonstrate strong account management as well as business development skills
  • Reside in the Midlands or South

In return you will be joining a business that truly cares and is passionate about what they do. A business that recognises and rewards hard work, which is full of opportunity to learn, develop and progress. What are you waiting for?
