National Account Manager - Garden Centres
National Account Manager – Garden Centres
£39,456 to £46,789 Basic plus bonus and quality company car.
Our client already enjoys an enviable following in the retail and garden centre channels across Europe, however the majority of UK business is handled via a network of distributors. A substantial investment by the American parent means the UK will shortly benefit from dedicated UK offices based in Leicester, plus the creation of a sales and National Accounts team also based in the UK. The company’s foothold has traditionally been in garden decking and garden ornaments category, however there is also now an exciting new range of garden tools which it is expected will enjoy similar levels of success. The emphasis will also change for the distributor model, to dealing direct with end user / Garden Centre head offices and for this reason it is essential you are well connected in the garden centre channel, particularly so with the likes of Wyevale, Dobbies, Blue Diamond etc.
In addition to your experience of National Garden Centre chains, you will also be expected to be an accomplished sales and commercial person, and bring this commercial expertise to bear in maximising the sales revenue from the current account base.
In return for your dedication and efforts our client is prepared to pay a basic salary of between £39,456 to £46,789 plus bonus and quality company car.
The role is home based, but requires a substantial amount of driving, plus regular trips to the European offices in France ( perhaps every three to four months ).
