We are recruiting an exciting Brand Manager opportunity to join a Pan-European Foods business who have a portfolio of leading brands and private label offering in the UK. The UK business is in exceptional health with a couple of years strong double-digit growth through delivery of NPD and digital activity. They have some big plans for 2019 with a new brand launch and are looking for a Brand Manager to bring this new brand to market.
Reporting to & supporting the Marketing Director, as Brand Manager you will be responsible for bringing a new brand to market so are looking for a Brand Manager with an Innovation orientation. The successful candidate will be exposed to the full marketing mix – from NPD and packaging development to communications, to the sell-in across multiple categories and retail environments from the major multiples to foodservice channels. You will also develop and deliver a clear and effective new product pipeline over the next 5 years which will achieve the agreed company’s 5 year financial and growth objectives.
If you are passionate for innovation and enjoy working in a fast-paced environment, are able to demonstrate strong communication and project management skills and feel confident in coming up with new ideas and have the ability to see them through then this is for you! You would be joining a billion turnover European organisation that has world class manufacturing and innovation facilities in Europe. The UK business has a strong identity with a family feel and a leadership team with a huge amount of ambition so we expect you’ll be instrumental in delivering further NPD to market.
As part of their growth phase they need to appoint a Brand Manager to support and achieve its ambitious growth plans. We expect you are currently in a Brand, Product or Innovation role with a couple of years’ experience ideally operating within a Food & Beverage or Consumer Goods sector. It’s likely you will currently be a Junior Brand Manager with some exposure to delivering innovation but hungry for more responsibility!
