My client is a long-established (3rd generation) fresh and prepared food manufacturer. They supply a number of the major retailers with high quality, own-label and branded products. After significant growth in the last few years they are entering an exciting new phase, building a new production facility and bringing on a number of significant new contracts in innovative and added value sectors.

The Candidate:

We are looking to recruit an exceptional commercial professional, to help take the business into the next stages of its 3 year growth and investment plan. We need someone with further potential who can continue to grow as the company develops further.

This is a once in a career opportunity to join this rapidly expanding business and take on full commercial responsibility for a number of major grocery and discounter customers. The position reports directly to the Commercial Director but will form significant relationships with the manufacturing sites in Yorkshire and Ireland.

You may be an experienced account manager with category skills or alternatively a seasoned category advisor who wants to take on full commercial responsibility, but above all what’s important is your energy, passion and drive to succeed in this highly entrepreneurial business.

We are looking for agents of change and people who can identify and deliver new business opportunities in a retailer.

If you just like to manage small increments in stable account relationships then thanks for looking but this is not for you.
