Are you looking for a chance to be a key part of a business with some ambitious growth plans? If so, then read on. This is a great opportunity to join the company at a pivotal time for them. You will be responsible for driving opportunities with some of their core foodservice customers but more importantly you will be helping them to deliver new business, ideally within foodservice and manufacturing. They are really well positioned and have an industry leading offering so conversations will be well received.

The Job:
You will be working very closely with the internal commercial teams to ensure that all plans are joined up and approached in an effective way.
Alongside the Sales Director, you will be responsible for executing the company's growth plans and feedback to the business with relevant opportunities.
You will be approaching potential new customers to explore opportunities to work together going forward.

The Candidate:
You will have a strong background within chilled foods and a proven track record of developing new business as well.
The business has a real family feel to it so having the right company "fit" is essential. Clearly this isn't something that can be gauged effectively before a meeting, but we will do our best to describe their ethos to you should you be relevant for the role.
You will be able to analyse information and make relevant decisions based on this to ensure you are optimising your chances of delivering.
