Key Account Manager - Arts and Crafts
Key Account Manager – Arts and Crafts
£30,125 to £39,142 plus bonus and company car.
Our client is already an international success in Europe and the United States of America. They are also part of a much larger multinational company encompassing three continents. They are now poised to dramatically expand their operation here in the UK, and are investing in new infrastructure and offices near Bristol within the next few weeks. This is backed by a substantial investment by the parent company in America. The current UK business is currently imported, but it is now the company’s intention to manufacture and warehouse product here in the UK, for both logistical and cost reasons.
To be considered for this role, you should already have had some kind of exposure to either key account or national account retailers, whether by way of direct responsibility or working in support of a National Account Manager. It may be that you have been acting in an office based National Accounts support role and now wish to go out on the road for the first time. Either way, this is an exciting opportunity to work with a highly professional company and to receive some of the best possible training / mentoring along the way too. It is the perfect springboard for an ambitious person looking to forge a career in the National Accounts arena.
It is envisaged that during your first twelve months you would act in support of the Senior NAM but that very quickly you would be given greater and greater responsibility and encouraged to take responsibility for your own accounts.
We have been advised to consider applications from candidates from all FMCG categories however you would be at a slight advantage if you had experience of either Arts and Crafts or Stationery.
In return for you hard work and dedication, our client is prepared to pay a basic salary of between £30,125 to £39,142 plus bonus and company car.
