Company

One of the UK’s leading premium branded snacking businesses have created a new opportunity for a Business Development Manager to drive and further develop their branded presence across multiple customer channels. The business has a glowing reputation across the industry and their portfolio boasts a number of instantly recognised products. Following strong growth of the overall category the business has achieved national distribution across the Retail, Wholesale and Foodservice channels. Following increasing demand for their products, the business has created a Business Development Manager role to support the growth of the brand.

As Business Development Manager you will take direct responsibility for an existing account portfolio which consists of both National and Regional accounts across all customer channels. Customers within the portfolio include; department stores, high street retailers, hotels, pub groups, restaurants, Foodservice Distributors, airline and snacking distributors. In addition to maintaining and developing the existing business you will be tasked with identifying new customers and developing trading relationships. You will report directly into the Head of Sales so can expect a great degree of autonomy to make commercial decisions.

Requirements

The successful candidate for this position will be a self-motivated sales professional with a track record of developing business within the food industry, ideally with experience of selling into both National and Regional Foodservice customers in a field based capacity. It is essential that you have worked with branded food products and can have an appreciation for premium foods.
