National Account Manager – Chilled Foods
£50k to £60,000 basic. Car Allowance. Substantial bonus – HUGE EARNINGS POTENTIAL
Our Client is a chilled foods manufacturer, and they are looking for a NAM to capitalise on the opportunities in the retail channel in the UK. Their main business is export and they have not really been giving proper attention to the UK retail channel. They do have some listings with Asda and Morrisons but literally a handful of SKUs and no real volume. All of the top four supermarkets however represent a significant opportunity. There are also substantial opportunities with Aldi and Lidl, along with the rest of the discount sector. The opportunity is absolutely massive, and they need someone to exploit it.
This is what they’re looking for;
Top four exposure is an essential ( any account ).
Exposure to Aldi and / or Lidl a big bonus.
Candidates need to be dynamic, energetic and ambitious with a real desire to earn lots of money – the potential bonus with this role is exceptional. They must be resilient, personable, proactive and with an excellent sense of humour to fit into an outgoing, hands on & “fun” culture.
Our Client is looking for people with contacts and connections in the Top 4 retailers.
Our Client has a preference for candidates from a chilled background however they are definitely still open to someone from ambient or frozen.
It’s essential that candidates come from an Own Label background.
Also important is that candidates have experience of some kind of added value product.
An involvement with NPD is also important as they will be taking briefs from buyers and then reporting back to the office with ideas for new products. They need to be an effective project manager.
Location – The jobholder will need to be in the North West office 2 days a week so a North West, Midlands or Yorkshire living location would be preferred however our Client will genuinely consider candidates who live as far south as London as long as they are comfortable commuting 2 days a week.
Remuneration - £50k to £60k basic. Car Allowance. Substantial bonus – HUGE EARNINGS POTENTIAL
