At the heart of our dynamic global growth is a simple belief: nothing should come between incredibly talented people and an accelerated career.

That's why we dream big. Why we look to the future, not the past. Why we value talent over title. And why we hire people that can be better than ourselves.

At AB InBev you'll join a driven team that shares your desire to grow, your courage to challenge and commitment to act. In return, we'll reward your achievements.

The opportunity is here. Make it yours!


About the role

Working in partnership with one of our key On Trade customers, the National Account Manager will proactively build and manage a long term strategy, including all aspects of the customer contact strategy, to build strong lasting partnerships. You will become an expert of the customer's business in order to identify growth opportunities both for ABI and the customer.

You will work with the customer to deliver agreed commercial and performance metrics, weekly / monthly business reviews of performance metrics, own and deliver commercial and category plans and own and deliver the annual activation plan, as well as be involved in key projects.

The On Trade never stops and you will need to be prepared to travel nationally and spend time during evenings to fully understand the customers' needs and requirements.
