An opportunity to give your career the best possible boost and be part of a fantastic organisation selling great brands in a hugely supportive environment with future career development prospects.

SHS Drinks, a division of the £400m SHS Group – a privately owned FMCG holding company providing a strong financial base and central resources for four divisions operating within brand ownership and sales and marketing across a number of different food, drink and non-food categories. 

The company’s biggest brand, WKD, is quirky and fun and a major player in the Ready-to-Drink market in both the on and off-trade markets. The company has also been highly successful in expanding their growing presence in the premium Soft Drinks category with their market leading Bottlegreen brand.

The SHS Drinks business has some really exciting future growth plans for WKD, Bottlegreen and other new brands, supported by significant marketing investment. As such they are now seeking a Customer Development Executive to join their National Field Sales team in the North West region. Candidates should already reside in the North West (ideally in Liverpool/M6 corridor area) or be prepared to relocate. They must also possess a valid UK driving licence.

The successful candidate will have direct responsibility for developing WKD, Bottlegreen and other brands in a broad mix of accounts, ranging from managed retail groups, wholesalers and independent operators such as on-trade pubs and bars, 4 and 5 star hotels, restaurants, quality cafés, premium leisure outlets, major tourist attractions and entertainment venues. Your key responsibility will be to drive listings, distribution and sales across the product range through the activation of brand visibility and brand support initiatives at the point of purchase. The role will provide plenty of variety and challenge in terms of both customer and product responsibility.

We are looking for graduate calibre individuals with a minimum of c.12months previous sales experience gained ideally in a drinks/bar or retail convenience/wholesale environment and can display a genuine passion for the drinks industry. Alternatively you may be a recent graduate with some relevant sales or marketing work experience gained from an internship or work placement period. 

This is a hands-on role with real responsibility that will test your influencing skills from day one. To be successful you will need to display a confident, articulate and persuasive personality, combined with passion and a drive for success.

If you think you’ve got what it takes and are ultimately keen to develop a career with a leading, growing FMCG company then please apply below giving details of your current salary package or email your CV to quoting reference number CB/1917.

Closing Date for applications: 8th October 2017
