National Account Manager - Own Label & Retailer Brands
**We’re flexible on your location (within reason) but you must live commutable TO EITHER our Plymouth Head Office OR our new factory in Leicester - there will be monthly travel to both sites as part of the role remit.**
We’re positive 2018 is going to be another fantastic year for Burts Potato Chips Ltd. Building on the success of 2017 - £32 million in sales, the acquisition of Savoury & Sweet Ltd (adding 110 people to the Burts family) and a whole new range of exciting products to the Burts line-up – it’s all great news.
This is all part of our plan to become the UK’s leading privately owned premium snacking company. We continue to source the best potatoes to create amazing and best loved favourites such as Seasalt and Cheese & Onion, as well as Firecracker Lobster, Smoked Crispy Bacon and working alongside our brands partners Guinness®, Levi Roots and Hobgoblin. We’ve healthy snacking products such as Quinoa Crinkles and Lentil Waves, and with S&S we now have access to a whole new world of popcorn, nuts and other potential healthy snacks. Never ones to rest on our laurels, with our ambitious plans for 2018 and beyond, we now need to make an addition to our National Account Management team with an Own Label & Retailer Brands NAM – and that’s where you come in……
We like to keep things simple – so we want an activity driven, authentic individual with real drive and ambition looking to prove themselves in the role. We’ll need you to have a proven track record in FMCG National Accounts, with previous or current Own Label experience. Exposure and skills in category management would also be a major bonus for us and would allow you the opportunity to really spread your breadth of commercial experience and add genuine value to the business. We work really closely with our Own Label customers, growing strong commercial partnerships based on outstanding innovation and service levels, so passionate and enthusiastic relationship builders (who are good with the numbers, Excel spreadsheets and everything else a NAM role entails) are the right fit for our tight-knit team.
Just as importantly you will be looking to join a business like ours - brand and value driven, and in a serious sustained period of growth. We’re incredibly proud of our heritage, our methods and ultimately our chips, and we want you to be to.
Thick cut British crisps done just right. Hand cooked in Devon (and now popcorn in Leicester!) with real taste, proper crunch, and made by real people. That’s Burts Chips in a bag.
Great brands. Loads of opportunity. Great person.
Sounds like a no brainer to us.
