The Client

Our client is a leading International Food Busines and are growing within the Categories in which they foucs; operating across several branded and own label areas they have an unquestionable appetite for success. Their 5 year plan is simple and yet immeasurably challenging, to transform the very way in which their Categories are “defined” and “shopped” by the retailer and consumer alike. The 2-3 year strategic goal is to succeed in the “elusive tightrope” of driving both Quantity & Value within their core offering, that will see their market dominance increase considerably.

 

The Role

As the Category Manager you will be tasked with managing a Key Business Unit working with the respective Senior Managers.

  • In order to achieve you will take ownership of driving a “change agenda” both internally and externally to the business.
  • Your short-term goals will be 2 years out, whilst long-term goals will be devised some 5 years into the future, hence the intellectual stretch you will experience will be unparalleled in your career to date.
  • Working at close quarters with the UK  GM, Marketing Directors and respective Divisional MD’s your plans will form the “Commercial & Category Compass” for the business to set its course.

In doing so they will be at ease with operating in an intellectually tough environment, where results are driven via a “Strategic” approach.
