Lantmännen Unibake is the UK's leading supplier of high quality bakery products to retailers, wholesalers and the foodservice industry.

We have 3,700 employees in 20 countries and we operate 36 bakeries in UK, Denmark, Sweden, Norway, Finland, Poland, Belgium, Germany, Russia, Hungary and USA and have our headquarters in Copenhagen, Denmark. 

We are currently seeking a Food Service Business Manager to manage a number of our Key Foodservice Wholesale customers.

You will be responsible for building on the existing, effective customer relationships to ensure long-term business growth is secured and there is a visible pipeline of tactical and strategically aligned sales growth opportunities.

The successful candidate will have a comprehensive understanding of and worked within the UK Food Service Wholesale channel. You will have demonstrable evidence of success and preferably a good understanding of frozen bakery within the frozen food category.

You will have exceptional commercial knowledge and understanding of customers, markets and production environments.

This role will only suit an ambitious individual looking to progress their career, and who wants to work in a fast moving, dynamic entrepreneurial environment.  This role is not for the classical account manager, but an individual who is hungry to win and willing to push the boundaries, learn rapidly, move at pace and think differently to others and ultimately deliver against stretching goals.

Working within an established team of highly skilled & motivated sales professionals, the role is home based. If you are currently working within the Bakery sector you will have a distinct advantage, although all other FMCG product areas are a consideration.

In return we will reward the individual with a competitive salary, bonus, company car/allowance and exceptional career opportunities.

PLEASE NOTE WE ARE NOT ACCEPTING CV SUBMISSIONS FROM RECRUITMENT AGENCIES FOR THIS POSITION.
