How boring is your private-label SNAM job?

Prestigious manufacturer, category leader, big account, spinning the merry-go round of bi-annual tenders across core categories, open-book costings, or near as good when sharing ‘end-to-end value-chain’ savings.

Maybe you love it? The money follows the pressure right – or maybe it’s one big dreary ground-hog day of eat, email, sleep, repeat.

SME environments offer excitement, room for manoeuvre and often a quicker pace of turn-around. The entrenched systems that often slow down the big players don’t exist here. But, neither does the safety of a large category leader and the associated opportunities for progression.

A stand-alone business unit, run like an independent SME. Turning on a six-pence, nimble, wide spread of customers, innovation-leader, quick-to-act, commercially driven – just a few of the ways we’d describe the make-up of this place. Unlike an independent SME though, they’re backed and owned by a large business with deep pockets. The fast SME culture combined with capital-investment friendly backing of a multi-billion owner affords the best of both.

Working across a spread of grocery and discounter accounts, you will take the lead at site for commercial strategy in your accounts and will be accountable for growth. You’ll be balancing core lines and season innovation launches across all your accounts. You’ll get chance to stretch and hone your extensive FMCG mults experience in the food sector without getting locked exclusively into one customer.

Autonomy, control, variety and no boredom. With access to career opportunities across the wider group, you’ll get the excitement of an SME without losing the structure and development ladder of a big FMCG group.
