Who We Are:

You may not have heard of Kruger Ltd; we prefer to keep ourselves as one of the Food Industry's best kept secrets. But many of the Products & brands we represent are World Leaders. Everything began with a promising idea: combining innovative, high-quality products with strong intuition for markets and opportunities.

What began in the year 1971 as a bold project to manufacture instant tea in the annexe of the parental wholesale business, the KRÜGER Group’s company history today reads like the screenplay of a medium-sized company’s dream come true.

Within the UK we operate an Enterprising Business Unit Structure. Following the significant strategic acquisition of the Maxi-Muscle/Nutrition Brand we now are seeking to recruit a Junior National Account Manager within our Healthy Nutrition Business Unit.

Rest assured our Branded and Private Label offering is

  • High Growth
  • Health Sports/Related
  • On-Trend
  • Has a significant presence across several channels (Grocer, High-Street, Convenience and Pureplay/Online)  

Would you like to be part of this exciting Story?


The Role- Junior National Account Manager

You will take full P&L responsibility for 2-3 smaller National Account Customers, whilst also supporting the Business Unit Director on larger Customers.

Key responsibilities will include:

  • Developing a focused Independent channel strategy in conjunction with the BUD.
  • Ensuring delivery of robust business plans in order to meet budgeted targets (volume, revenue, profit)
  • Developing a comprehensive understanding of the category & channel and to use this knowledge to deliver high growth with your customers through demonstration of an objective category/customer focused approach.
  • Developing accurate forecast assessments by product to minimise wastage and maximise service levels
  • Recommend new profitable opportunities.
  • Maintaining detailed budgeting and expenditure controls.

If return, you will be part of:

  • An Exciting high Growth Northern Based FMCG Business with a Family Feel to the Culture. But with the backing of a wider Global Group
  • With No Politics (Or as little as you can get)
  • No Paralysis By Analysis (it's about Growth)
  • No Restrictions on Winning Business. (If it's profitable & Supports the Long-term Values)
  • Intellectual Stretch from the Director you'll work with to help further your career
  • Access to Leading Products & Exciting Brands they have yet to reach the UK


Role Requirements:

We are open to candidates who ideally have a minimum of 3 years’ experience within FMCG industry whether that be across Brand or Own/Private Label; ideally with direct experience of Commercial Account Management at either a National or Key Account Management level.

Alongside this You:

  • Must be High Potential (although not exclusively in the usual Blue-Chip/Corporate way)- We understand that some candidates can become frustrated by the structural career development that can be found in Bigger FMCG Businesses; but they have huge potential to progress in a more “flexible” environment.
  • Initiative Based, Well Disciplined & Action Focused
  • Ideally some level of Classical Training within a Larger Food Business- However “will probably” have gained experience working in an Entrepreneurial/SME Style Business. (this could be within a Sub-Division of a larger Food Group)
  • Ambitious, Enterprising & A Massive Hunger for Learning & Success
  • High Integrity- In that you will be very open with any mistakes/miss-calculations that you may make. If this were to happen; you would be the kind of person that would immediately alert your Line Manager/Senior Team 
  • Have a “Feel for the Deal”. What is meant by this is the ability to look and assess the information in front you; and then have the ability to sense/feel/see the opportunity/gap. (A Visionary Approach to account development)
