A new and genuinely exciting opportunity has arisen to join a fun and friendly food business as a Junior National Account Manager.

The business has more than doubled in size every year since their inception, they are now available in a host of leading highstreet and grocery retailers and have a strong NPD pipeline to continue this astonishing growth.

The brand sits comfortably alongside other Free From businesses, however this business is bringing a completely different offering to the category, they produce indulgent products that are gluten & dairy free which are suitable for vegans, which there really isn't anything similar at the moment.

This ambitious food company is looking for a Junior National Account Manager who has a bit of entrepreneurial flair, with a desire to win but could easily fit into their vibrant company culture. You would be working closely with the Head of Sales across a number of key accounts whilst taking a small P&L for yourself.

As a Junior National Account Manager you will be responsible for:

  • Supporting the Head of Sales on managing a range of key accounts.
  • Maintaining P&L of your own accounts to drive sales and profitability.
  • Business development (warm and new business) within target accounts.
  • Analyse account performance and make valid recommendations to continually improve performance.
  • Building rapport with the customers but also internally with other departments to ensure plans are delivered on time and in full.
  • Work closely with the development team to produce bespoke solutions to customers.


The person we are looking for will be:


  • Degree educated (or equivalent)
  • Experienced in National Accounts or Field Sales and some exposure to new business development within food, drink or FMCG.
  • Brilliant relationship builder who can represent a brand to customers with warmth and gravitas.
  • Passionate about the Food & Drink industry.
  • Willing to travel across the UK when needed.


This role will grow as the company continues its exponential growth, it's a different opportunity to the other roles so don't hesitate to send your CV to the Lime Talent team today!
