CatMan Jobs are currently recruiting a Category Manager for a North West based, FMCG business with a number of predominantly own label products in its portfolio. 

The Business

This business operates in a high volume category with its products purchased up and down the country. Operating across an ever expanding category, our client is a big player in this market. With strong net revenue growth last year, it is a company that is continually striving to be the best. 

The Role

Our client is looking for an experienced Category Manager to join the team. With unlimited scope to drive the category forwards, you will be expected to contribute through creative solutions and supporting the Category Controller in key meetings and presentations. In a business that looks to stay ahead of the competition with innovation you will advise the NPD team of what opportunities are out there in the category. 

The Person

You will have experience in category management with major grocery multiples, with broad experience of standard category management tools, e.g. range reviews, GAP analysis and NPD recommendations. Along with this, an astute commercial acumen will help you succeed in the role. A deep understanding of Nielsen and or Kantar data will put you in prime position to make an immediate impact and advise the relevant stakeholders. To make these recommendations, however, you must have a strong personality and the capability to build relationships and convince effectively. 

The Opportunity

Development is key to the ethos of the company; however progression will be limited solely by your ambition for success. 

CatMan jobs specialise in Category Management jobs, Trade & Customer Marketing jobs, Shopper Marketing jobs and Insight jobs across the UK.
