Full Time
Contract Type

If you’ve got that essential combination of strategic vision and the ability to implement and drive that vision commercially and pragmatically, then you can help drive the success of globally admired Food brands like Uncle Ben’s and Dolmio, within a £24billion, family-owned company which also produces other iconic brands such as Wrigley’s, Galaxy, Flavia and Whiskas. 

As a Commercial Strategy Controllers/ Manager, reporting to the Sales Director, it’ll be your key responsibility to build in our capability using price, trade promotions and pack format as levers for category sales growth, share gain and profit delivery. There'll be a three-year time horizon to build and implement your recommendations across all sales channels and core brand segments. Direct accountability is part and parcel of our culture; so you'll also need to support sales teams with insight, training and promotional capability to implement key price changes and ensure ongoing tracking and evaluation through research and market data. Then there's taking the lead on FMCG promotional best practice with our key retail partners. Believe us: these are BIG roles on a great career pathway.

We're looking for people with an outstanding and demonstrable track record in FMCG pricing strategy, in-depth trade/customer knowledge and, essentially, the ability to interact with and influence senior management and motivate others. Underpinning all this will be your:

  • strategic agility 
  • business acumen 
  • decision-making quality and drive for results.

There are two Commercial Strategy Controller roles at differing levels, either for an experienced player to come in and hit the ground running at senior level or, at a lower level, for someone with the knowledge, skills and headroom to forge a great career and make their mark.

Either way, we're totally committed to developing our people and giving them the ownership and freedom to show what they can really do. So what are you waiting for? Click now to apply for this Commercial Strategy Controller role!
