We represent many major manufacturers and brands across 4 specialist divisions; Household, Foodservice/Catering, Stationery and Healthcare.

We are seeking an experienced and proactive sales professional to handle our operation within the wholesale, cash & carry and grocery independents sector. The territory will cover South West England, Bristol, Oxford, Reading, and Bournemouth, down to Penzance including part of South Wales with the jobholder ideally live in the Bristol/Swindon area, although other locations will be considered. With full responsibility for managing the existing customer base, the position will also require the jobholder to adopt a focused and organised approach that will identify and deliver profitable new business opportunities. Success in this role has the potential for career progression to key account management.

A self-starter, the successful candidate will have a proven track record in driving sales and have proficient planning, presentation and negotiation skills. Building positive relationships with a clear customer and market focus will be the elements that will deliver the results to drive the business forwards. I.T. literacy, particularly competency in the use of both Microsoft Excel and PowerPoint applications, is a prerequisite for the role. Experience with wholesale fmcg sales preferred, as would some familiarity with key account management, although a comprehensive induction programme is provided.
