Ambitious yet held back?  Have you strategically placed yourself in various roles to gain people leadership skills and the depth of knowledge to navigate your way around complex JBPs and tough commercial negotiations across various customers but no longer getting the challenge you crave in your current place of work? 

This may just be the next step for you then!  We’re looking for an ambitious National Account Controller to join a globally recognised brand to head up one of their sales channels which accounts for a significant part of the business.

This is a brand where culture and team are massively important.  There is a sense of togetherness here and as a leader in the business we need someone who is also big on team and people.  Someone who puts talent development at the top of their agenda, get the people piece right and the numbers will follow.  If that’s your approach to business, then you will love these guys!

Within this blue-chip FMCG brand you will find innovation, ambition to play second best to no one, continued drive, a fiercely commercial operation injected with real passion about what they do, a partnership led approach and a very high calibre of talent.   This is a home based role and offers flexibility, accountability and the opportunity for further promotion.

If you’re reading this, you’re of a level where you know what’s expected in a senior leadership position.  A National Account Controller here is as you’d find in most other FMCG blue chips.  The difference is likely the level of output that’s expected.  Whilst they’re a significant player in the industry, their team is lean and along with high expectations that most have, they’re looking for actions, deliverables and someone who can’t just understand the makeup of a P&L but someone who has real substance, is a doer, and is able to articulate the maths behind proposals that justify your decision making.  You’re taking centre stage with this role!

What are we looking for?

  • Top 4 Grocery or Wholesale/ Impulse experience – we’re looking for someone who can demonstrate working strategically and is excellent with numbers yet can also develop long term partnerships, thinking more broadly and finding different ways to engage to drive growth.
  • A high level of commerciality.
  • A strong learning agility.
  • An ability to understand a team quickly, identify talent, development and implement a plan for growth.
  • Strong social awareness.
  • Further ambition and clear drive.
  • A restless persona.
  • Someone with strong analytical skills.
  • Blue chip FMCG experience within a branded environment.

If you’re in the FMCG industry and have progressed your career already relatively quickly and hungry for more, we’d love to hear from you.
