Kitwave is an independent wholesale group which has seen huge growth recently and featured on the Sunday Times ‘Top Track 250’ list in 2013 & 2014.

We have depots throughout the UK and specialize in selling Confectionary, Soft Drinks, Snacks, Groceries, Alcohol, Frozen Food and Tobacco.

As part of our expansion, an opportunity has arisen for an Area Sales Manager at our ‘Teatime Tasties’ division

Teatime Tasties is an established, delivered wholesaler of Cakes, Biscuits, Snacks, Confectionary and Soft Drinks. We deliver over 700 lines to over 5000 Independent Retail outlets throughout the UK.

This is a unique job for which the primary objective is to lead a team of approx 8 Sales Representatives within the South of England.

Due to the nature of the business, this role will involve covering for reps within your team whilst they are on holiday and will require some overnights. Other responsibilities will be to canvass and drive new business within your area, again which may involve some overnights. When not covering or canvassing you will be working closely with the Sales reps in your team to coach and develop them.


You will be a dynamic, tenacious & highly motivated individual. You will be able to work well on your own and be able to stay away from home during the week. You will have a real drive to grow sales and deliver new business. You will be a strong communicator at all levels and be able to coach and develop a team of sales people.

FMCG sales experience is desirable but not essential. It is more essential that applicants display the above qualities.

All new starters will be given an extensive induction and training programme.
