Quicke’s has been farming the same beautiful Devon countryside for almost 500 years. With a world-renowned cheese, made from the milk of the Quicke’s herd, the mission of “farm like you’re going to live forever” still lies at the heart of our philosophy.

We seek someone with a track record of luxury product/fine food sales and with a flair for building relationships and educating key stakeholders. Quicke’s is found across the globe wherever artisanal cheese is enjoyed. The backbone of sales has always been our domestic wholesale channel; with cheese reaching World Top 50 restaurants, top-end chains and travel accounts as well as owner/operator cheese shops alike. This is an exciting and varied opportunity for an experienced professional.

The goal is to build our lead in supplying discerning consumers, who demand high quality products produced by artisans in an ethical and sustainable way. Education is a core part of our activity, whether that’s our involvement in founding the Academy of Cheese or hosting classes for the guests of key retail/restaurant clients.

We have a growing team of passionate, enthusiastic likeminded people who share the vision and values of the business, which has enjoyed consistent growth in recent years.

Account Manager

In this role you will be responsible for driving forward sales of our world class artisan cheese into customers across a spectrum of channels, be that via independent cheese shops to regional/national multiple retail; coveted restaurant names and chains, through to airlines and cruises or major sporting events. At all times you will be expected to be a powerful ambassador of our artisan values and flavours, and communicate them with passion and ingenuity.

This is not an average job, therefore we do not require average people.  To succeed in this role you must be committed to artisan food and the philosophies guiding it. You must be highly organised, practical, down to earth and in possession of excellent communication skills with a willingness to go the “extra mile”.

This is a rare opportunity to join an excellent company and as you might expect from the winning team, we will expect you to be as enthusiastic and passionate about what you do as we are.  In return, you will receive an excellent package and the chance to help shape the future of an already successful company.

Any direct applications to Quicke's will be forwarded to our retained recruitment partner SJS Consulting. 

We regret that due to the volume of applications, we can only respond to successful candidates. Therefore, if we do not make contact within 5 working days this means your application was not successful.

We are more than happy to discuss why if you would like to contact us.
