National Account Manager - Toys
Do you have experience in Account Management from a gifting or toy background? Are you passionate about producing world class product ranges? If so then this could be the right opportunity for you…
My client, one of the UK's largest suppliers of Toy's, has found the need for a new National Account Manager to join its well-established team. This is an excellent opportunity for someone who has an entrepreneurial attitude to assist in producing world class product ranges and contribute to the strategic direction/ development of the business.
They are key player in the Toys industry, positioning themselves at the premium end of the market, with global coverage. They are renowned for their high-quality brands, strong licenses and they pride themselves on their customer service. They are a design led company, offering a diverse collection of products which are unique and different.
As the National Account Manager, you will report directly into the Head of Sales and you will have the responsibility to look after several different accounts, as well as working in conjunction with the Business Development Manager, both of which have been long standing members within the team. This is a home-based role with occasional travel to the head office in the South of London twice a week.
Key Responsibilities in this role will include:
- Creating your strategic channel growth plan
- Developing, implementing and reviewing joint business plans. This will include terms and account investment plans, distribution gains, promotional plans and new product opportunities.
- Create and develop superior customer relationships.
- Negotiate trading terms.

The role will allow you to have P&L responsibility for your accounts as well as forecasting and target setting in line with the business. This will provide you with the full autonomy and freedom to grow and develop the channel based on your strategic plan.
My client is looking for a dynamic, driven and passionate candidate who is entrepreneurial, and has a 'can do' attitude to business. Ideally, you will be an accomplished National Account Manager who has come from Toys or Gifting product background however they will look at people from other Consumer related product categories. Will be looking to join a business where you can really make a difference and take the next step in your career. This is the perfect opportunity for an individual who wants to be part of a growing team where you can really make an impact.
