One of the world's favourite confectionary manufacturers and one demonstrating exceptionally high growth. They are growing at an unrivalled rate of 24% year on year, doubling their turnover in the last 2 years. This is both down to the success of their world renowned brands and the acquisition of other businesses to add to their already impressive armoury. There are very few businesses in FMCG that can boast this in the current market.

Great brands across categories that are bang on trend, means these guys are flying. Their marketing is second to none and viewed as best practice across the industry. There is a strong focus on bringing new products to market as well as acquiring new brands, which, with the right additions to the already talented team, will see these guys go from strength to strength. 

Not to mention, culturally, this business is huge fun to work for. There is a real empowerment and autonomy which is rare in the market, allowing you to make mistakes, learn from them, take real responsibility and accelerate your career. All the while having a great time and enjoying the work hard, play hard ethos this business exudes. 


About the Role:

As a Regional Account Manager, you will have full support of the highly experienced National Accounts Team. When you join you will be inducted onto the business's world class on-boarding process, where you will be briefed on key areas of the job and have full exposure to Head Office systems to get you on that track to NAM level as soon as possible! 


About You: 

We're looking for someone who has a background in the FMCG industry with experience of the Wholesale and Convenience. A key requirement for this role is you must be a good relationship builder who can communicate with people from all levels and background due to the diversity of the accounts involved in this role. 


  • Previous account management experience at local or regional level - displaying financial acumen.
  • Interpersonal and negotiation skills across hierarchical levels.
  • Computer skills incl. Excel & PowerPoint.
  • FMCG C&C, Wholesale and/or Convenience channel knowledge.
