This ‘foodie’ business is now looking to appoint a National Account Manager to take responsibility for the manufacturing channel which has some compelling NPD in the pipeline!  Operating in a specific area of food you will be responsible for brining this to life with your customers who in turn will deliver some incredibly tasty products for Grocery Retailers.

The role breaks down to:

  • Day to day account management of a stable portfolio of food manufacturers
  • Development of new business within the wider manufacturing channel spotting where the gaps are
  • Developing a close working relationship with internal and external new product development teams
  • Proactivity in customer engagement through compelling NPD and market trends getting ahead of the market
  • Use of customer data and forecasting tools to improve analysis

  • Enthusiasm, ambition, high energy to develop the portfolio and progress your career
  • Tenacity to break down doors and a ‘go getting’ attitude
  • Strong influencer and communicator
  • Strong presentation skills
  • FMCG account management and development experience – preferably working with private label products
  • Broad vision and creativity to get onto everyone’s plate!

This is not one of the usual suspects and not your ordinary opportunity.  Ordinary won’t work here – enthusiasm, ambition and high energy does!  If this sounds like an opportunity you’d like to explore, please don’t hesitate in applying or getting in touch for a confidential conversation.
