Job Details

We're looking for a driven Account Manager to join our client, a privately owned, growing SME food business.

The business has grown strongly over the recent past as a result of a growing customer base as well as increased sales their brands.

The role involves taking full responsibility for, & growing both own label and branded business in a number of current and new customers.  

The experience we need

Educated to a degree level in a business or marketing subject.

You will have over 2 years' experience working as an account executive/manager, preferably within the chilled food industry & selling to the major multiples.

Exceptional organisation, planning and IT skills are required, as well as a talent for spotting opportunities and developing your accounts.

We want an individual that is self-motivated, confident communicator and is willing to go the extra mile to succeed with an entrepreneurial flair.

The role

You will be an integral part of the business working for the Senior Account Manager.

You will work alongside the SAM ,and Brand Manager with the ultimate goal of delivering new profitable sales.

The role will provide significant exposure and interaction with all grocery retailers as well as other customers in the discounter and convenience  channels.  The role will involve some basic admin duties, running reports for your customers, creating category plans, turning data in to intelligence & therefore opportunities.   It’s a varied and exciting role, where no two days are the same, and offers the ideal platform for somebody in the earlier stages of their career in National Accounts to accelerate their own career development as the business continues its growth.



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.
