Category Manager – FMCG Food & Drink

c. £35,000 - £45,000 + Bonus + Benefits

Office Based – Hertfordshire

This is a fantastic opportunity to be part of a fast growing FMCG Food and Drink business. With a turnover in excess of £70m in the UK and further sales in international markets they are one of the leading SMEs in their category. Their products include sauces, spices and snacks as well as a number of refreshing beverages that are well distributed across the UK’s Top 4 Grocery, Convenience and Wholesale customers. Having recently added significant resource to their marketing department they are now looking to recruit a talented Category Manager.

As Category Manager you will be responsible for developing strategic relationships with major grocery customers. The aim will be to drive awareness and visibility of your brands within the category and ultimately maximise the return for the customer and your business. You will provide category insight to all levels of the business and be involved with JBP development and range review planning.

In order to be considered for this position you will ideally have some experience working within the FMCG industry. It is important that you are very analytical and those who have used data sources such as Nielsen, Kantar or IRI will be viewed favourably. If you do not have a background in FMCG but feel you have a keen eye for data analysis and trend spotting then you are still encouraged to apply. This role would be ideal for an ambitious category analyst looking to make their next step into a position that offers more control and autonomy. There will also be the opportunity for man management as the business plan to recruit a category apprentice in the future.

If you feel you have the relevant experience and skillset to be successful in this new position then please forward your CV to
