On Trade Business Development Executive – Premium Spirits

£30,000 + Car + Pension + Bonus

Field Based – North London

An exciting opportunity for an ambitious individual has arisen within a large international alcoholic drinks business. This business is renowned for having a great variety of well-known brands across a multitude of categories. As a business with a multi-national presence in both the On and Off Trade, they supply the world’s largest retailers and groups and also sell to small, independent restaurants and bars. They have impressive plans for growth, particularly within the On Trade and are consistently investing in their people and infrastructure in order to achieve their goals. They are now looking for a Business Development Executive to cover the North London area.

As Business Development Executive your primary task will be to increase visibility, activation, distribution and rate of sale within the area’s On Trade outlets. You will focus on a wide variety of free trade and independent bars and will also cover small groups and hotels. A portion of the role will be to lead sampling nights, tastings and trade events in order to fully engage your customers and maximise the potential in all of your accounts. This is a field based role with travel involved so effective journey planning is a must.

To be considered for this exciting opportunity you must have a basic understanding of the local On Trade. Drinks industry sales experience will be preferred but is not a necessity. Individuals who have a background in bar or nightclub management will also be considered but it is essential that you are a fast learner and passionate about developing a career in drinks. You must also be numerate and commercially astute. There is a fantastic career structure in place and the company are very focussed on internal development – with that in mind, it is of the utmost importance that all applicants are ambitious and looking to develop their career.
