Business Account Manager
£35000 - £40000 + car + bonus
For a boozy nation, we're becoming much more conscious about our drinking habits. With more of us than ever making the choice to abstain, either temporarily or indefinitely.
But people still go out. And pubs, bars and restaurants want to make sure they have the products to meet demand, as do wholesalers and retailers.
They want to talk to companies who can introduce new products that tap into trends, encouraging customers to part with their cash.
And if you’ve got the skills, this company has got the products.
You’ll join them as their Account Manager, responsible for On Trade Field Sales covering the M40 corridor..
Working for a Director who doesn’t want you bogged down with admin, after all, when did filing ever make a sale?
You’ll proactively visit your accounts, making sure they have all they need and telling them about new products that they don't yet know they need.
You’ll be on first name terms. Problem solving and adapting your approach to each customer's unique circumstances.
As well as managing your existing customers across large independents, Multiple Retail Groups Wholesalers and some Regional Brewers, you’ll make new sales. Your customers might have leads, and over time, any new customers you get might have more leads. And so on.
Your job is to make the most of these relationships.
Ideally, you’ll have some field sales experience, but if you’re a manager in the hospitality industry that's good too.
The product you'll work with is a refreshing change in the soft drinks market, and not just because of the taste.
Where soft drinks are normally basic and choice limited, you'll be selling ‘grown up’ options that hit the spot in terms of taste, image and variety. Without a drop of the hard stuff.
By and large, it sells itself. But they need your help.
You’ll get a salary of £35-£40k, plus a bonus, working for a national brand with a small business feel. You also get a company car to travel between sites. They have the financial backing to make sure the brand is managed and matured sensibly.
