Job Details

National Account Manager required for a rapidly growing supplier of healthy / on-trend snacking categories.  A business truly riding the wave of today’s consumer shift toward wellbeing, their brands proudly boast key space on the confectionary / snacking aisles in the major retailers and across all other significant customer channels.

Following the successful launch of a new branded range in 2020 following a significant investment in innovation and brand marketing, the business is forecasting impressive double-digit growth over the next 3 years. 

As a result of this continued organic growth, the business is looking to strengthen its commercial function with the creation of multiple new roles.

Food Industry Associates have been given exclusivity to help our client identify their next ‘, ‘super-star’, to join the business as National Account Manager and help drive further growth across a portfolio of accounts including the likes of Nisa, Budgens, Londis, SPAR amongst others.

With new brands successfully launched in to each account within your portfolio, this role presents a fantastic opportunity to take advantage of significant growth opportunities and make a real swift impact in the early stages of your time with this business.

The role will involve building and executing existing JBP’s, promotions and activity plans, ownership of forecasting and commercial analysis and working on and implementing overall channel strategy and innovation.  

The role also provides an opportunity for those looking to gain leadership / management experience, with another NAM positioned to report directly in to this role, which in turn reports directly to the Sales Director.

Our client is a privately-owned business with a passion for health and wellbeing, they pride themselves on ensuring they have a fun and rewarding environment for all.  The business has an impressive record when it comes to developing and retaining its talent, and the plan for this role is to identify those hungry to work within an on-trend food manufacturing environment looking to demonstrate capability in the initial role before then being rewarded with further career development opportunities.

 

Company

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.
