National Account Manager – Yoghurt / Yoghurt Drinks.

Our client is already hugely well respected in the world of own label yoghurts, however they have recently taken a lead from their French parent company, and are about to introduce a range of Branded products into the UK market. In addition there is a considerable amount of investment into NPD, in particular in the area of yoghurt drinks into the snacking category. This is an exciting time for anybody joining the company, and career prospects are excellent for the right candidate.

The role itself is to take full ownership of the Tesco and  Sainsbury’s accounts, which are already highly successful accounts, but with considerable scope for further growth. It would be ideal if you had experience of either of these accounts. You should also ( ideally ) be from a chilled category, or at the very least a category that is very fast moving.

Good experience of the NPD process is also very important for this role

The company is also about to invest in new offices in the Bristol area, so you should reside within 100 miles of Bristol as you will need to be in the office about twice each week. There will also be some travelling to see customers, and occasional travel to head office in France ( no more than twice each year ).

Our client has retained us to find the best of the best for this position, and they are prepared to remunerate accordingly. The salary range on this role is £38,568 to £61,895 plus bonus and car allowance.
