Category Strategy Manager

An exciting opportunity has arisen for a Category Strategy Manager at a leading FMCG supplier based in Surrey.

The role whilst managing a small product group, will be responsible for the company's category strategy & thought leadership - working cross functionally, internally & externally.

Key responsibilities:
  • Develop compelling visions, strategies and category drivers, championing their use internally to actively engage the retail customers.


  • Clearly define strategies & tactics to enable execution of customer deployment plans


  • Develop and execute an on-going customer engagement plan ensuring alignment of retailer, category and brand priorities.


  • Own the creation of an annual learning plan, working with the local insights team, in order to understand & plug category & shopper knowledge gaps.




This role requires a thorough mix of creative category experience, someone who is great at deep diving insights but also creative and can think alternatively. The role will deputise in the team leader's absence, so gravitas & influence are key to this role.



A mix of agency & client side experience will be considered, or solely client side, but the latter is important in a candidate's career.
