Catman Jobs are looking for a Category Executive to join a leading FMCG manufacturer in Greater London. 

The Business

This £multi-million business have both branded and private label products in their portfolio and are looking to recruit into their Category team as a result of increasing demand from retailers. This will enable them to meet current and future growth plans into other product areas outside of their core category and will ensure that they remain as one of the top players in the market. 

The Role

The role of the Category Executive will be to support the category manager in the development and implementation of category and shopper marketing strategies to drive category growth as a whole for the retailer. You will be involved in shopper marketing and insights, retailer presentations, data analysis, quantitative and qualitative analysis and creating an environment for category captains on a consultative basis.  

The Individual

Ideally the successful candidate will already have a solid grounding in category analysis and data manipulation within an FMCG environment either as an analyst, account executive or already a category executive looking for a stronger progression route. Equally important is a driven can-do attitude and an analytical brain combined with the ability to liaise with tough buying. Working under pressure and delivering exceptional insights into the category will be paramount, combined with the ability to present market trends and offer consultancy to key retailers. 

The Opportunity

This position will provide the right individual the opportunity to acquire the skills needed to move from Category Executive to Category Manager. The speed of their personal progression will be determined by their hunger to learn and their drive to succeed.
