Due to their continued growth, they are now seeking a Sales Executive to join their Commercial division based in West Yorkshire. As Sales Executive you will take responsibility of their foodservice customer base, maintaining and developing those relationships to maximise sales.

This role will report into the Sales Director, and you will join a team of three in a high energy environment. You will work cross functionally with Sales, Planning, Supply Chain and Finance.

The duties will include:

  • Use internal CRM function to review and monitor customer sales performance
  • Identify and new opportunities to grow the business

This is not a cold calling position although you will have a large portfolio of customer that you will be expected to have regular contact with.
