About the Company:

Our client is an up and coming FMCG business that has gone from strength to strength over the last few years, more than doubling their turnover. They are looking to grow their field sales team and increase their product presence in their independent/free trade, delicatessen and farm shop channel. The NPD is massive and very focused around their British Heritage and British sourced products.

Culturally, integrity, autonomy and hard work are what come to mind here. They are a small team and you’ll be trusted to get on with the job in hand, although you will have full support from the National Field Sales Manager and be in close correspondence with the Head of Direct Sales. You will be learning from some very senior FMCG figures who have been in the industry for a number of years and will be imparting their knowledge to you!
