NATIONAL ACCOUNT MANAGER - Convenience & Wholesale channels
£attractive salary package, car or allowance & benefits
Home based – South West/South/Midlands

Our client is a successful and growing UK division of a European chilled foods group supplying a wide range of European origin branded and own-label products into the Grocery Retail, Wholesale and Food Service trade channels. Entrepreneurial by nature, the company has a strong people culture where individuals are highly valued and are offered real autonomy, empowerment and responsibility in their roles.

The company has ambitious growth plans for the UK and is now looking to expand the sales team with the appointment of an additional National Account Manager to manage a portfolio of customers in the Retail Convenience and Wholesale/Cash & Carry channels. 

The ideal candidate will have previous FMCG food sales experience at Account Manager level and a strong knowledge and understanding of the Retail Convenience and Wholesale sectors. Previous dairy, chilled foods or short-life products experience would be an advantage. More importantly, the job requires a highly motivated self-starter with good communication skills and strong commercial acumen, who is comfortable in “hunting” for new business as well as “farming” existing customers. You will need to demonstrate plenty of passion, energy and enthusiasm to be seriously considered.

The position is home based (South West, South or Midlands) with a requirement to attend the company’s South West based head office c.1-2 day per week. In addition the role will require a small amount of European travel on a selective basis, probably 1-2 times per year. In return the company offers an attractive salary package, car or car allowance and the usual benefits.
