National Account Executive - Wine
We are Kingsland Drinks. We are a premier independent UK supplier of wine and spirits to grocery retail, on and off-trade, covering a wide range of price points from every day drinking to premium range served in the finest hotels. Our roots are in Manchester, where we started over 60 years ago. Our vision is to drive sustainable growth for us and for our customers by being a world class provider. Times and technologies have changed, but today we stand for what we’ve always stood for: bringing our customers quality products and outstanding service, responsibly.
But this won’t be like working for a large blue-chip corporation; you will be given a real opportunity to make a difference and have a direct impact on your career development.
This is an excellent opportunity for a high potential individual with a minimum of 1 years’ experience in a sales/customer interfacing role. We’ll ideally like you to have been in front of customers, as you will be engaging with a broad range of external (and internal) stakeholders. You will work with the Business Sector Controller, supporting him and the Kingsland Business Account Team, primarily on Tesco and Sainsbury’s but you will also get involved on projects with Specialists, Convenience and On Trade customers.
We need you to be a highly organised, capable and confident individual, who will be keen to prove themselves in this role. The kind of person who will want to get involved across the business, learn and explore the opportunity and look to unlock potential in the customer portfolio. Most likely from a Sales and Marketing background, FMCG food, drink or non-food, this will be the next level of role you are looking for. It would also help if you had a genuine interest in wine, or one that can be cultivated, as we’d like to train you in WSET as well as part of the role.
Does this sound like the right role for you? Challenging, fast paced and a platform for developing your National Account career, and its in wine!! What’s not to like? Please forward your CV – or call Matt Piper on 0118 903 4914 for more information.
