NATIONAL ACCOUNT MANAGER - Foodservice Wholesale Accounts
Flexible Eastern UK location
£40k-£50k + 20% bonus, car & benefits

An outstanding opportunity to join a market leading £550m dynamic UK food business with a substantial own label, as well as household and television advertised, branded market leading product portfolio.

Following the appointment of a new Commercial Lead Controller for the foodservice and industrial B2B business, my client is now looking to further strengthen their national accounts team with the appointment of a new National Account Manager.

This broad role will take full P&L responsibility for a c. £6m portfolio of foodservice and wholesale account business, plus the man-management and coaching of a National Account Executive report.

Having developed your career within well recognised food manufacturing or wholesale companies, you have branded or own label food product experience managing any of the major foodservice regional or national wholesale accounts. This experience has given you a strong understanding of conceptual food development sales and the route to market dynamics through to major end users.

Currently operating at National Account Executive level and more than ready to step up to full National Account Manager P&L status, or you are already working at National Account Manager level looking for your next career challenge.

Either way, you must be highly motivated with an ability to “concept sell” through the foodservice supply chain and make things happen. Ambition, drive and determination, coupled with a highly personable style will be required to fit into this high energy, work hard, play hard, fun and cultured business.

If you feel you have the right level of strategic and operational hands-on experience gained across the foodservice or wholesale markets for this role, please email your up-to-date CV and full benefits package details to Mark Smith at mark@smithcarey.co.uk quoting reference number MS/2014. Alternatively, please call 07747 847 214 or 01488 649 360 for an initial confidential discussion.

Closing date for applications: 10th November 2018.
