Sales Manager | Fresh Produce | Something a bit different!
We are working with a large organisation who are looking to strengthen their team in the UK with the appointment of a Sales Manager with Fresh Produce experience. They work, in conjunction with another partner, with a number of retailers in the UK and enjoy a very well deserved reputation for great service and quality. They are aiming to further improve this by ensuring they have a dedicated resource in the UK who can better promote their interests and help them to exploit further opportunities. This role will suit someone who has worked closely with the likes of Waitrose, Sainsburys and Aldi in the past in a commercial management capacity and is maybe looking for a new and varied challenge.
You will be working closely with their commercial partners, to ensure their interests are managed appropriately.
You will also be liaising directly with the retailers and feeding this back to the broader team in order to better tailor their offering to the retailers.
As the Sales Manager, you will be overseeing an Account Manager as well, who will offer additional commercial support.
Fresh produce (fruit preferably) experience would be a big plus, but certainly experience of dealing with short shelf life products and experience of dealing with one or more retailers.
You will need to be a self starter and be able to seek out the priority areas for your focus.
There is a long term strategic piece that you will be in a strong position to develop and deliver. So you will need to be comfortable with strategic planning and talking at a range of levels within both customers and the internal business.
If this role sounds like it might be something that you are looking for, then please get in touch with Morten Andresen on 01780 480530 or apply via the link.
