We pride ourselves in manufacturing the highest quality pet foods and improving the welfare of the nations’ pets. We believe in responsible pet ownership, supporting animal welfare through education, in addition to making healthy, nutritious and tasty pet food.
Our strong family values and traditions are at the heart of our success. Our passion, commitment to animal welfare and nutritional expertise learnt over the years has led us to where we are now - a leading UK pet food manufacturer with a global customer base.
The role: Reporting into the Retail Sales Manager, you will be tasked with representing the Burgess brand within the retail/wholesale Specialist Pet Food trade. The successful candidate will be responsible for an existing portfolio of long term customers, whilst also sourcing, prospecting and developing new customers.
The successful candidate will need to have a background in selling a product rather than a service and have ideally 2 – 3 years field sales experience. You will have a proven background delivering forecast sales and revenue targets and have displayed the ability to work autonomously as well as in a team.
This is a great opportunity to join a business who are rapidly expanding and have a strong pipeline of new business to complement their already successful product range.
