Senior National Account Manager - Grocery (Healthy Snacking)
Location - Home based
Salary - £45k - £65k dependent on experience, LUCRATIVE bonus, car allowance and benefits
How would you like the opportunity to work within a true market leader within their category? A company that consistently delivers 10% growth (or above) year on year? A line of products that is LOW calorie, LOW sugar, LOW carb and HIGH in protein? A role that allows you to work on top 4 accounts that are in rapid growth where you will have full autonomy over decision making and a real chance to show off your entrepreneurial flair within this agile and forward-thinking business!?
I am currently recruiting for a home based Senior National Account Manager (Grocery) to work on managing and expanding growth in the grocery retail channel across two protein snack brands. With full P&L responsibility over your accounts this is an excellent opportunity to further develop your career within account management.
This company are the market leader within the UK within their niche category, with 20% growth in sales year on year for the past 3 years and 52% share of the market. Each of the top four multiple accounts are in double digit growth which comes of the back of driving the core products lines whilst heavily investing in NPD and innovation to consistently bring new products and flavours to market.
On a European basis this family owned (no shareholders to answer to) company has a SME feel to it…. Lots of autonomy, lean, agile, entrepreneurial etc. Globally however they employ 20,000 people with sales of over 1.5bn. So, in a way, you get the best of both worlds!
In the USA, the business are the market leaders in the category and the 4th biggest impulse brand!
To be considered for this role, you will currently be at NAM/SNAM level and currently working within FMCG. We’d like you to be able to demonstrate a proven track record (5 years) of growth across top 4 Grocery Multiple accounts within a snacking/impulse/soft drinks. We can probably be a little flexible on the category experience (as long as its branded) but the Grocery Multiple knowledge is a must.
Some ideal character traits to fit within the company culture include; self-starter, trustworthy, confident, ability to manage up to the next level, positive, high energy and humble!
The rewards are significant! The basic is up to £65k and comes with a car allowance and some great benefits. Last year the bonuses achieved in the UK were 53% and this is based across achievement of revenue targets and delivery against your personal performance plan. The lowest bonus achieved in the last 5 years was 25% so even erring on the side of caution, the earning potential is huge.
