National Account Manager (Pharmacy/OTC Medicines) - Discounters and Grocers
National Account Manager ( Pharmacy / OTC Medicines ) - Discounters and Grocers.
Our client has briefed us to identify and recruit an outstanding individual to manage an exciting portfolio of accounts across the Discounters and Grocery channels. The portfolio is currently worth some £5 Million, but with substantial room for growth in terms of both volume and profitability. The portfolio currently comprises some of the most well respected, and at the same time most recognisable brands in the UK OTC / medicine/ Pharmacy category. You should have a firm grasp of Brand matters, including category management, insight data, Brand Equity etc. and you should also enjoy a strong understanding of joint business planning, and all other matters relevant to the OTC / Medicine / Pharmacy sector.
Exposure to either a top four Grocery account would be something of a bonus ( the likes of Asda and / or Morrison’s ), either of which would be ideal, along with one of the discounters, would also be very much appreciated ( the likes of Wilkinson’s or Savers ), either of which would be ideal. The role would equally well suit an experienced ( top 4 ) Grocery NAM, or likewise a person who has successfully managed a discounter portfolio, and is now ready for the next step in their career.
An exposure to the world of pharmacy and/or personal care would be a considerable advantage, however we shall be able to consider candidates from within any branded FMCG category, subject to you having a firm grasp of all things Brand related, along with strong business modelling skills, and bags and bags of commercial acumen.
Applicants should live in either the Midlands or the North of England. The salary is £40k to £50k basic plus bonus plus company car.
