COMMERCIAL CONTROLLER - RETAIL CHANNEL

Up to c. £65k + car or car allow. & benefits

Flexible location - within 2 hours commute of Gloucestershire

My client is a successful and growing UK division of a European chilled foods group supplying a wide range of European origin branded and own-label products into Grocery Retail, Wholesale and Foodservice trade channels. Entrepreneurial by nature, the company has a strong people culture where individuals are highly valued and offered real autonomy, empowerment and responsibility in their job roles.

The company has ambitious growth plans for the UK and are now looking to expand the Sales team with the appointment of a Commercial Controller to manage a portfolio of retail customers, including Tesco, Sainsbury’s and The Co-op.

The ideal candidate will have previous FMCG own label experience at National Account Manager or Senior National Account Manager level, plus a strong knowledge and understanding of the retail sector, with Top 4 experience. Previous dairy, chilled foods or short-life products experience would be an advantage. More importantly, the job requires a highly motivated, self-starter with excellent leadership skills, strong commercial acumen, a hands on approach and an individual who is just as skilled at “hunting” for new business across the retail channel as they are “farming” existing customers. You will need to demonstrate plenty of passion, energy and enthusiasm to be seriously considered.

The position offers some flexibility on location (South West, South or Midlands) with a requirement to attend the company’s South West based head office c. 3 to 4 days per week. In addition the role will require a small amount of European travel on a selective basis, probably 1-2 times per year. In return the company offers an attractive salary package, car or car allowance and the usual benefits. 

Interested? Then please apply below providing details of your current salary package in the information box. Alternatively, please email your CV together with details of your current salary package to Maria Murphy at mariam@smithcarey.co.uk, quoting reference number MM/1955.

Closing date for applications: 24th February 2018
