£Competitive + Excellent Benefits


It’s not just developing customers, it’s winning fans.

To be number one in the UK drinks distribution sector – that’s our goal at Matthew Clark. We’re already the leading wholesaler, but we’re aiming to make the top spot. That’s why we need a go-getting Customer Development Manager. Join our talented team and you’ll enjoy some great rewards plus the chance to see your career soar.

What you’ll do

Matthew Clark is growing fast and exploring all kinds of opportunities. That makes it a fantastic time to be here – and the future can only get better. By developing new business and a number of strategically key existing accounts, you’ll take us to the next level and help us meet profit targets. It’s all about turning channel plans into solid revenue. For that, you’ll need to develop channel contact strategies, maintain a prospect database and work with the Marketing Manager to maximise all commercial opportunities. With our existing customers, you’ll manage all financial elements of their accounts, whilst ensuring they remain profitable. And for new customers it will be your remit to migrate them into the regional business to ensure they have the ongoing support they need.

About you

Skilled in account management, you’ve worked in our industry or in FMCG sales, gaining a vast experience with On Trade and the wholesale market. Your CV shows a track record of generating new business, successful negotiation and productive networking. In fact, you’ve built up an established list of contacts thanks to your gift for relationship management. Confident and good with people, you can influence and sell. Educated to minimum of A-Level standard, with an Advanced WSET qualification, you’ll bring sector-specific knowledge, initiative and strong analytical skills. With all this (plus a full driving licence – 6 points maximum) you’ll be all set to excel.

What we offer

This is a place for people who enjoy the buzz of constant change. We offer a range of attractive benefits as well as great on-site facilities. You can expect:

  • 26 days’ holiday
  • a subsidised restaurant
  • plenty of parking
