Due to succession planning we have a great opportunity to lead a Top 3 account for some category leading brands primed for growth! With instantly recognisable portfolio of brands this is an attractive opportunity to join and be part of a growth orientated business. Our client is recognised as a career employer and this first role would be a high profile appointment and the stepping stone to Channel Controller, Commercial Strategy or Grocery Customer Director roles!

In this role you would be fully accountable for a Sainsbury’s; managing the relationship; driving forward the customers vision and plan across the cross functional team; full JBP and full P&L accountability. Building on a solid platform and relationship, they are now looking for a dynamic SNAM to play a pivotal role in achieving growth plans and to strategically develop the account further.

Whilst a major branded business they are a fairly lean operation and we need individuals that are category-focused and strong leading cross-functional teams to ensure success. Operating within key destination categories this opportunity will allow you to develop and implement account strategies, develop robust customer relationships and build a significant profile within the customer!

Successful candidates will come with a track-record of success within Retail Buying or FMCG account management in a branded environment and experience within the Top 4 Grocers would be a distinct advantage. Strong negotiation and presentation skills are essential. A genuine flair for building strategic customer relationships and multi-level networking are a must. In summary the role would give you significant exposure and profile within both the customer but also this leading food company recognised as a career employer.

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.
