About the Role:

An integral part of the business, the National Account Executive will be working with some of the company's key/regional accounts within the Midlands region across the Foodservice/Wholesale and Cash and Carry channels.

The main part of the role will be:

  • Regional JBP planning with regional directors of the key national accounts.
  • P&L responsibility for key regional accounts.
  • Have contact with regional head office buyers.
  • Identify and create presentations for potential new customers.
