With a number of exciting new NPD launches across in 2021 they are looking for someone to come in and build the OOH and QSR side of the business. This role provides great scope and potential by launching these channels from scratch.

With the brand successfully launched in some of the Grocers already providing great brand awareness, 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.  

You will have experience building and setting up these channels with the added responsibility of eventually building your own field sales team. Experience selling into the large national coffee chains is a big plus especially within the free from category.

Our client is a growing business with a passion for health and wellbeing, they pride themselves on ensuring they have a fun and rewarding environment for all. 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.

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.
