Sales and Account Executive
We're a small start-up business with big ambitions.
We specialise in healthy soft drinks and we've developed an innovative bottle cap that helps keep our drinks really fresh, healthy, sugar free and low cal (the cap is amazing and really fun to use!) Our products are unique in the soft drinks market and we will grow our business by working closely with customers in an ethical and socially responsible way.
Our business is expanding (our customers now include Tesco, WH Smith, Amazon) and we need a talented, creative and ambitious Sales and Account Executive to ensure we maintain the momentum. Experience in FMCG would be nice but not essential. The key characteristics we’re looking for are passion, enthusiasm and reliability.You’ll be interacting with retailers, buyers, our Marketing, Finance and Supply Chain teams so enjoying working with all types of people in an organised way is pretty important.
We see the key accountabilities as:
- Delivering targeted sales revenues and maximising growth with key retail and wholesale customers
- Driving new growth opportunities, initially in the UK but international markets will be future targets
- Working with our Marketing team to develop a strong brand presence across the market
- Establishing strong, professional relationships with our customer base
The knowledge, experience and skill base the job requires are:
- A Degree standard of education
- A passion for selling and negotiating
- An ability to build relationships quickly with strong communication and influencing skills
- An ability and desire to work under your own initiative supporting team goals
- A results orientation
- A creative and keen problem solving ability
We’re a modern business so we don’t really have rigid organisational structures but you’d be part of a dynamic team and reporting into our CEO.
Naturally, we’re offering a competitive salary package for the successful candidate as well as the pleasure of working in a cool office building in Loughton (well maybe not that cool).
If you think you might be interested in being part of a team who are determined to change the established Soft Drinks market, we’d love to hear from you at firstname.lastname@example.org and include your latest CV
