Senior National Account Manager


Competitive salary, bonus and car allowance

We're a bunch of Devonian dog lovers and experts in pet nutrition who've been developing and producing 100% natural pet food for over 45 years.  Founded in 1971, Forthglade is the leading natural wet dog food brand in the UK.  Operating from a brand new, purpose-built manufacturing facility on the edge of Dartmoor, we are looking to strengthen our sales team with a Senior National Account Manager, responsible for our business with several of our grocery customers.

The Role

Reporting to a Channel Controller, you will be responsible for the commercial relationships with a number of our grocery customers.  The role will require the negotiation of customer terms in line with set budgets, coupled with the creation and implementation of JBP’s that incorporate both promotional and activation plans that support Forthglade brands across the various customer platforms, in store, online and print media.

With full accountability to deliver net sales budgets, specific responsibilities will include regular review meetings with buyers, the launch of NPD, the use of category data to influence range and space for Forthglade brands and clear reporting back into the business on customer performance.


This is a strategically important appointment for Forthglade at a time when our brands are growing  fast across all trade channels.  We are looking for pragmatic candidates with a flexible approach and a desire to grow and develop within the business. You may be a NAM looking to progress or already operating at SNAM level and looking for a change. As the business continues to grow, so will the opportunities, so those looking to develop a career will be at an advantage.  Hard work, dedication and a desire to really understand the business will also be seen favourably and whilst we all work incredibly hard, we are a business that also recognises the need for a good work life balance.
