The business is currently looking to recruit an experienced National Account Manager to look after some of their largest accounts with a large combined P&L responsibility. Looking after multiple Top 4 accounts that are of great importance to the business this role can provide the ideal platform to accelerate your career development.

The business is looking to identify their next Grocery NAM via this appointment working mainly within the Own Label channel. With the skills and challenges that Own Label accounts provide, experience in the channel will be necessary. This role is working within a category that has grown massively this year and is very on trend. 

To be considered for the role, it is important you demonstrate a own label mentality and record of success whilst managing a top-4 grocery retail customer account.  Exposure to Tesco, Sainsburys or Waitrose is advantageous, however not essential.

You will be looking to manage a large P&L within a company that is across different categories which helps provide it with security in these current uncertain times. 

It will be expected that you have experience of developing and implementing successful joint business plans with your current customer base, and will be able to demonstrate the delivery of results that at least match, if not exceed your KPI’s.

The role offers working flexibility with around 3 days a week in the office and the others from home or visiting customers.

For over a decade now, Food Industry Associates Ltd have proven to be a recruiter of choice for ambitious SME food and beverage manufacturers across the UK.  We don't recruit for the big corporates by choice.  Instead, we choose to work with companies with personality, entrepreneurial flare (not process), looking to disrupt the market with cutting edge innovation to provide consumers with better, healthier choices.

Are you an early stage start-up struggling to find the right solution to help you gain your fist listings in a specific customer channel before you can raise the budget to employ somebody on a permanent basis?  Maybe you know you need to source a commercial leader but aren't 100% clear in what format, or how to adequately incentivise somebody from a much larger business to join your mission?  Come speak to us.

If you're a more established business looking to bring fresh talent on board to drive ambitious sales targets, source a creative innovator to help you drive in to new extended categories, or looking to strengthen in marketing / category terms, again, come speak to us.

We've a proven record in recruiting talent for an array of businesses, helping them source commercial talent to help them achieve their goals.  From early stage sales talent through to equity-incentivised leadership roles, we've proven time and time again to find the right people for our clients at the first attempt.  

How are we different to most of our competitors?  Unlike most, we don't have as diverse a portfolio of clients we work with.  However all those we do work with continuously come back to us whenever they next have another need.  In our opinion successful recruitment is achieved when two businesses truly 'partner' and collaborate together.  In our opinion the better we know you, the better we understand all the extra elements aside from simple skillset and experience to ensure the right 'fit' is identified at the first attempt.  In our opinion, this is recruitment, done properly.
