Due to an internal restructure an excellent opportunity is now available for an experienced National Account Manager to join an industry leading business within the homewares industry.
Our client is a premium manufacturer of homeware products and is part of a major international group.

This is an exciting position where you will take responsibility for a number of our client’s key accounts. Customers will include multiple retailers and department stores such as House of Fraser, Debenhams plus industry specific national retailers. You will have P&L accountability for your customers and be expected to work closely with them in order to create bespoke new product ideas.

Ultimately your aim is to grow both sales and profitability.
To be considered for this excellent opportunity you will be a high calibre candidate who is ambitious, hardworking and capable of progressing in the future to manage large national accounts.

However, you must have experience of a non-food consumer product category and will have worked on bespoke products, playing a key role in liaising with internal colleagues in design and product development. You will have a good education and be intelligent, entrepreneurial and have excellent communication skills.
