THE NAM ROLE
Reporting to a SNAM you will take P&L responsibility for a selection of the leading online retailers and convenience retailers, as well as having the opportunity to further develop business with targeted high street Discounter customers. This is a hands-on role where your focus will be managing all sales and profits, customer-led marketing activity budgets, JBP negotiations, promotional planning, NPD launch new listings and very importantly, building effective customer relationships.
You will be part of a friendly and commercially-focused National Accounts team who are fully supported with Marketing, Finance and Category colleagues, including market-leading tools and information to ensure you compete in their large, dynamic and high on trading opportunities category.

We are interested to hear candidates’ stories around ‘what and how’ they have gained commercial achievements including new listings, negotiated terms or gone the extra mile to deliver profitable sales growth within their account portfolio.
To succeed in this role you will need to be well educated and commercially astute, with a sound understanding of the UK grocery trade dynamics. You need to be driven and energetic, possessing a highly-personable style that easily connects and works well within a motivated, highly-collaborative team culture.
