Key Account Managers x 2 – Farm Shops and Garden Centres.

Our client is already a market leader in premium handmade crisps, and enjoys an enviable following in farm shops and garden centres throughout the country.  A recent joint venture means the introduction of a complementary range of equally premium organic and healthy soft drinks which presents a significant opportunity for both of the companies involved. The scope for increased sales and market penetration is substantial, and we have been briefed to identify and recruit two accomplished individuals to achieve this objective; one in the west country, and other in the south east.

To be considered for one of these exciting positions you should be from a fine food / premium food background or from a gifting food and drink background. You will place a high emphasis and high value on premium products and be able to command a premium price in return by selling the added value proposition to retailers themselves.

You will also have had recent and relevant experience selling  into either the farm shop / deli / fine food / garden centres and other independent retailers, and this will have included at least some key accounts with multiple sites and dealing with a central buyer. 

Living location – anywhere south of the M4 corridor. These are field based roles, however you will be required to attend monthly meetings at the new joint offices in Hampshire.

Remuneration – In return for your dedication and effort our client is prepared to pay a basic salary of between £36,895 to £46,012 plus commission and company car.
