Our client is one of the leading players in Fresh Produce, with many awards accredited for innovation, and as a result of expansion is looking to strengthen their team by appointing a Senior National Account Manager to handle several of their largest accounts.

Reporting in to the Commercial Director, ideally you will be experienced in handling the multiple grocer accounts with fresh produce on a daily basis in a responsive and professional manner. You will be tasked with fully understanding the category by developing an insight in to the numbers and the strategic intent of the customers.

As it is such a demanding product area, you will be highly involved in planning and forecasting, as well as seasonal negotiating. New product development, good service levels, and overall excellent customer management will see this business develop further.

In order to maximise the potential of the product categories and the accounts we need candidates to be strategic in outlook, creative in thinking and pragmatic and hungry in their approach. You will also need to demonstrate a trading mentality to be able to maximise margins in this fast moving product sector.

The package includes a generous basic and performance driven bonus.

To apply please send your CV and a covering letter indicating your current salary details and notice period.
