Are you looking for a new challenging Sales Director opportunity? Are you values driven and passionate about sustainability and perhaps looking for an organisation which is likeminded and therefore offers the platform for some serious growth?
This appointment will see you at the forefront of a super high growth SME which is expanding at significant pace given the category they operate. A rare Sales Director appointment in the FMCG industry which offers a diverse role, an existing high performing team and a culture of empowerment, autonomy and responsibility, not just for your own work but for the planet. You will make a difference here!
We’re not talking about a brand which is newly created. No, this brand has real heritage and a story which resonates with many led by a creative, go-getting, won’t take no for an answer, fabulous leader who still gets involved in the business today. Whilst the business has changed significantly since formation, the ethics and values at its core remain the same and they are just as committed today as they have ever been to create the most sustainable brand possible which is affordable for all.
This position won’t be for everyone though. If sustainability isn’t on your radar or you don’t have the energy and drive needed to invigorate the team and deliver ambitious growth plans over the next 3-5 years, this won’t be for you.
As you’d expect in a growing SME, this is a broad role, highly strategic yet hands on and requires someone who is adaptable, pacey and has already operated in a FMCG business which has been through transformational growth. You will lead a high performing sales team across multiple markets including Grocery and High Street Retail, Independent Wholesale, eCommerce and International.
The successful candidate will hold the following experience/ attributes:
- Branded FMCG background preferably having gained experience in both blue-chip and SME (SME experience is a must)
- Already operating in a Sales Director capacity with proven experience of delivering business growth across multiple channels
- Passionate about sustainability and green credentials
- Passionate with hunger and drive to reach ambitious growth aspirations
- A supportive and encouraging character who has a can-do attitude
- Leads by example taking real accountability to drive change
