Regional Account Manager -Speciality foods
86 it! Start again... but use what you've learnt.
Why not, take what you know about food, flavour, specialty ingredients and cooking exceptional dishes... and use it to your advantage? Taking all your food know-how for a completely new cause, which will result in a complete change in your day-to-day surroundings and activity (no two days are the same, or in the same place). Getting a work-life balance, great salary and job satisfaction all at the same time.
This is the chance to join a business that is going places (in a growing space) and it could be a complete change of career or the logical next step for you. Either way its offering a chance to get out on the open road in a customer facing role that has you talking food food food, with those that know, and can.
Professional Chefs are your customer base and if you've been in their clogs you'll know what will work and what won't. As you manage existing accounts and develop brand new relationships you are carving out a name for yourself in the North West. Covering Greater Manchester, Merseyside and Lancashire you will become a celebrity on your patch, and your customers will look to you for insights and advice. Its the type of position where they will welcome your visits and use you as the example others need to set. Bringing them the best and most interesting of fine food products to compliment their menus daily.
Its a funny one... because you probably love your Chef job, or your Front of House management role, but the volatility and shelf-life these positions have make it a risk for career planning. A position such as Regional Account Manager is something that will allow you to grow whilst you grow your success stories. You'll work amongst a supportive team who have been in same boat as you when they began here. We're confident with the right attitude and outlook, you'll thrive like them well before the probation period lapses.
