As a result of continued growth our client are recruiting for sales director to help head up their strong sales team of over 25 people. They are looking for someone with an brilliant track record in sales as well as a proven ability to motivate and lead a team.

The chosen candidate will assist with driving the team to increase distribution, profitability and ensuring business opportunities are achieved across the customer base.

The successful candidate will have experience of selling within the On-trade and Off-trade channels, with clear successes in both channels. You will have great passion for the drinks industry with good knowledge especially of the wine industry, combined with the strong people management skills.

This is a great opportunity to work at one of the drink trade’s most dynamic and successful companies, known for its quality and customer service. The package on offer is competitive and dependent on experience. 

The role is mainly office based in the South East office with flexibility 


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.
