Our Client is a well established and successful Food producer. A vacancy has arisen for a European/Export Sales Manager within the Business.

They currently have no business in Europe but they have identified it as a substantial opportunity. They want a senior and experienced person to spearhead that business into Europe.

This is a great opportunity for someone to write their own Export Plan. Our Client is looking for somebody who can write their own strategy and then implement it, from scratch.

This is what they’re looking for ;

An experienced new business person with exposure to ( definitely ) France and Germany, and ideally Spain and / or Italy also. France and Germany are both essentials though and candidates for this role should be experts in both markets.

Candidates should be able to speak at least one foreign language fluently, ideally two.

The target channel is major retail / grocery in the designated territories, however they are unsure whether to sell direct or via distributors or a combination of the two. This is one of the strategies the successful candidate will be charged with implementing.

Category experience – ideally protein categories ie Meat, Poultry, Seafood etc but failing that our Client will consider candidates from any FMCG category.

Candidates can live anywhere in England or Scotland above the M4 provided that they live near enough to an airport. There will be a requirement for regular European travel.

Remuneration - £50-70,000 basic plus discretionary bonus, plus car allowance ( unspecified amount ) and fuel allowance.
