Catman Jobs are currently recruiting a Category Manager for a private label food business based in the North West.

The Business

This business operates as a major chilled food producer and is a well known within its category. Through staying one step ahead of market trends and complete dedication to their customer base they maintain a strong presence across all retail channels. As a top competitor within their category, keeping one step ahead of the curve is vital to success.

The Role 

The client now seeks an up and coming category manager to take them forward and drive the category. You will work with the commercial managers to develop, implement and drive the category strategy to achieve the forecasted growth potential within each account. You will be involved in retailer presentations, data analysis, quantitative and qualitative analysis and creating an environment for category captains on a consultative basis.

The Individual

Ideally the successful candidate will already have a solid grounding in category analysis and data manipulation within an FMCG environment. Equally important is a driven can-do attitude and an analytical brain combined with the ability to liaise with key customers. Working under pressure and delivering exceptional insights into the category will be paramount, combined with the ability to present market trends and offer consultancy to key retailers.

The Opportunity 

The company are well recognised for a progressive culture where capability, hard work and working for the good of the business not the individual is rewarded. This will be a step on the ladder to allow you to forge a long term successful career within the group.
