Regional Account Manager – Pet Products
£28-34,000 Basic, Good Bonus, Company Car + Benefits
Our Client sell an exciting portfolio of healthy Pet products. They are a rapidly expanding Company and offer exciting career development prospects.
They are looking for an accomplished Regional Account Manager to cover a patch in the South East (E Sussex, W Sussex, Surrey, Kent, London, Middlesex) Candidates can live anywhere on patch. The area comprises mainly independent pet shops, but also some garden centres and some veterinary practices.
The job is to manage these accounts and also look for new business. It is mainly an account management role however. In addition to managing their own accounts, the job holder will be required to provide in store support ( at branch level only ) for some of the national accounts ( the likes of Pet Corner, Jollies and Pets at Home ). The involvement with national accounts will be to ensure the staff are educated in Our Client’s product range, and provide trading, support, merchandising / POS etc. There will be no commercial dealings with the Nationals, as this will all be handled at head office.
It is essential that candidates have strong Territory Management skills. Our Client’s sales model relies heavily on following some well tried and tested KPIs ( each sales person will be required to do 7 calls per day, and to plan their own journeys and as this is a home based role, they’ll need to be able to self-manage to a very large degree indeed ). Our Client is looking for somebody who has well proven territory management skills, as well as good sales skills. A track record of success and achievement in field sales is really important.
It is essential that candidates come from within the pet industry ( selling into either pet stores, or veterinary practices, or garden centres ). They will also consider candidates who may have worked for Field Marketing Agencies on behalf of Pet Product Brands.
Candidates should at least have an interest in animals.
Remuneration £28-34k Basic. Bonus ( OTE is £6k on top of basic ). There is also a company car.
