Job Details

We are working with a well-established business that manufactures and sells high quality ingredients across the food industry. They supply across all channels including retail and B2B.

Due to continued success they are looking for a new General Sales Manager to join their expanding team. The business remains highly profitable, and they have enjoyed extensive growth in recent years. Due to this success, they have recently invested a considerable amount into building a state of the art manufacturing facility to support their continued expansion.

Your role will be to help lead a team of territory managers to help maintain and develop existing new business selling to multiple B2B accounts including manufacturers and wholesalers.

You will be in charge of continuing relationships with current customers as well as developing and growing new relationships. Reporting into the Managing Director directly you will gain great exposure within the company.

To be considered for this role you will need proven selling experience preferably within the food industry and be able to show examples of sales growth and developing new relationships.

You must be a self-motivated, organised and determined individual who is able to deliver the highest level of customer service with the ability to lead and manage a professional sales team.

If this sounds of interest then please attach your CV and we will be in touch for a confidential chat regarding the role.


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.
