About our Client:

Double digit growth & doubling turnover! Four amazing brands across exciting categories means this company knows how to grow their sectors, not only by continued sales but also a strong focus on bringing new products to the market. These guys are a confectionary juggernaut looking at branching out into new categories which the retailers are absolutely loving.

They have added the most amazing people to their already talented team in the last few years and are looking for another new addition to run their largest account.

Culturally, these guys are loads of fun and love new people to bring a structured background to a place where they want you to own your business and make your own decisions. Rapid progression, world class support and lots of growth potential across the business make this a real exceptional business to work for. This is an opportunity not to be missed!


About the Role:

This National Account Manager role is viewed as the most visible in the business working with the top grocery account in the business with an NSV of over £60m.  The role is highly commercial and you will spend time with your internal stakeholders working on strategy as well as a significant time with your account in partnership.

Because of the nature of the business, collaboration is key and the feeling across the company is about the whole rather than just successful individuals.

The other side to this business and critical to the role is the need for further expansion and growth of headcount. You will come into this role and manage 2 reports with 3 dotted lines. The plan is to further add to this team over the next 12-18 months so identifying development areas and a previous track record for hiring is key.


About You:
