Job Details

Are you looking to step into a Grocery Commercial Manager position and struggling to make that move?  Are you craving career development but being held back because you haven’t worked on a Top 6 Grocer before?

This is one of those rare opportunities where we’re looking for someone who wants to make that step change from wider Retail or the OOH channel and these guys are perfectly positioned to support your development.

They’re not ticking boxes here, they’re looking for character, ambition and transferability of skill set.  If you know how to build a P&L and manage an account in FMCG it’s all transferable!

Sound like this could give you what you’re looking for?

The business

Commutable from North London and Hertfordshire, this is an FMCG business which has it all.  You will find an inspiring leader who has nurtured a high performing environment which is all about team.  An entrepreneurial environment too where you’re encouraged to seek forgiveness rather than permission and one which is rather refreshing given the history of the organization.

This business has a story to tell and real heritage.  The brand oozes quality, provenance and screams of mouth watering taste!  They’re well positioned and mean business looking to stamp themselves firmly on the map.

The opportunity

This is a Commercial Manager appointment which will see you responsible for a Top 6 and Top 4 Grocery Retailer with a view to continue to build on already close relationships. Similarly to the business, there is history with these retailers and a relationship which has been built on trust, quality and authenticity. A perfect NAM role if you’re making your first move into Grocery Retail.

What we’re looking for:

To be successful in this role you must be able to get into the office for 3 or 4 days a week given you’ll not only be learning the ropes of a new business, but also a new channel (assuming you’re making a move into Grocery Retail for the first time).  We’re looking for FMCG account management experience, the rest is down to you! 

If this reads like you and you’re passionate about growing your career working with Grocery Retailers, we should talk, as this opportunity is a rare one!

  • A supportive team player
  • A self-starter and driven individual who has ambition
  • A no fear and proactive approach
  • You’re committed and inquisitive
  • You take accountability and ownership

This is an incredibly exciting opportunity and in particularly for those looking to make a break in Grocery Retail.  If you’d like to learn more, please just apply or send me an email directly and we ca chat this through!
