We are currently searching for a National Account Manager to join one of the UK's leading Food Manufacturers. With a number of great customers including several major UK retailers, their products are easily recognised within most UK households. Their product portfolio varies from healthy chilled ready meals to delicious pies.

The role of National Account Manager will involve expanding sales and maximising margins of products within one of the major UK retailers. This is one of the company's major accounts and the successful candidate would be required to build stable, long lasting relationships. You will work closely with all departments including marketing and NPD to deliver the high level of customer service expected from the company.

As a successful candidate, you will have recent experience as a National Account Manager within chilled products and have had full P&L responsibility within one of the top 5 UK grocery accounts.
