The business we are representing is a fast-paced, innovative food business that operate in an on-trend, health driven product category. They can demonstrate very healthy growth as a business and are building a growing reputation across the UK market. This is an entrepreneurial, dynamic environment with a friendly, open culture. Our client is looking to change the landscape of the product category they operate in. As a result, they are now looking to recruit a National Account Manager to support ambitious plans for the future.

Reporting into the recently appointed Head of Sales this person will take responsibility for two major UK retail accounts, likely to be grocery accounts. The role will be focused on delivering budget targets, maximising all revenue and building strong customer relationships. Part of the role will involve new business development. This person must be entrepreneurial, driven and pro-active.You will have the chance to be involved in a growing channel and play an integral part in growing this area of the business.

This opportunity is very well suited to National Account Manager’s with experience of selling into top 4 grocery accounts. Part of the role may also be dealing with major online customers so experience of this would be of interest. Candidate’s currently at Junior National Account or National Account Executive level will also be considered. Exposure to ambient food categories will be viewed favourably and an appreciation of how to operate within a challenger brand environment will strengthen your application. If you are looking to work in a smaller, more entrepreneurial environment that can offer a great level of influence and autonomy then this role will suit. An interest in healthy living, nutrition or sports would make this role a great fit.
