Our client is an instantly recognizable food producer with some of the UK’s most loved brands under their belt, as well as a strong own label business producing the Grocery market’s more tasty indulgences. They are steeped in history but after huge investment and a new, privately owned, international sister company, renowned for building profitable food companies, offering a reinvigorated boost to the business, they are on the next step of their journey and looking to expand. Due to yet another brand acquisition and unprecedented growth, they are investing heavily into their category team with yet another headcount being added into the structure.

As Senior Category Manager you will take responsibility for a Top 4 Grocery Retailer, reporting directly to the Head of Category. You will be a ‘doer’ and an ‘innovator’ with a true passion to challenge the status quo and do things differently. You will work closely with your customer to build on an already strong category relationship and ensure continued, trusted category partnership status. You will be able to manipulate data to develop exciting category strategies and be responsible for leading the overhaul of their recent brand acquisition within the category, as well as continuing to add value to the current portfolio. With such a close working relationship with the customer you will be given full ownership to make things happen and be expected to deliver powerful strategies, invigorating merchandising plans and honest advice, helping to take category performance to the next level.

If you do not hear back within 7 days the relevant consultant has decided not to progress with your application. We are a specialist in the consumer sector and as such most of our vacancies require candidates with experience in the consumer market. We will therefore retain your details and contact you if we can be of some assistance to you in your search.
