This is a great opportunity to work across several of the major grocery multiples, focusing on a category that is very much on trend; with quality and innovation on their side, the business growth shows no sign of slowing. The role of Category Manager will play an integral role in the team, supporting growth in branded and own label goods with a vision to drive inventive NPD.

You will need to have demonstratable skill in data analysis, drawing meaningful insight and presenting back in an easy to digest format.  This is a strategic role which requires more than just the day to day – you’ll be working with the wider commercial team to really drive growth and therefore the position needs someone who is forward thinking and strategic in mind set.  The ideal person will be:

  • Influential, passionate and proactive
  • Strong in presentation skill, comfortable in front of customers presenting key trends and range reviews
  • Familiar with various data sources, such as IRU and Kantar
  • Organised with great attention to detail
