Salary – 75K-85K (100K OTE) Company Car or allowance, Full company benefits.
We are one of the leading companies in the UK at sourcing and supplying ambient canned products globally.
We supply to a wide range of sectors including FMCG, Foodservice and food manufacturing.
We provide a solution where we locate the right manufacturing partners for our clients who pre-pack at source, in addition to arranging the logistics to the UK.
We currently turn over in excess of £70 Million with strong growth predicted for 2022.
We pride ourselves on the level of service we are able to provide to clients and our expert team of Senior NAMS both manage these relationships whilst working closely within our manufacturing partners across the world to provide bespoke and effective solutions for our customers.
This has enables us to work in partnership with the leading retail and hospitality providers across the UK.
Due to a highly successful 2021, we are seeking to add a further Senior NAM to our team to manage customers in our Foodservice channel.
This position involves the management of an existing Foodservice account portfolio of circa £10 Million.
The clients will be predominantly foodservice wholesale, although there will also be National Foodservice chains (pubs, leisure, restaurant groups) and Food manufacturers within the account base.
This is an exciting and varied role.
The initial responsibility will be for managing relationships with the accounts, but you will also be responsible for liaising with our continental manufacturing partners to source the right solution for the clients from a quality, availability and financial perspective.
This element makes the role different to many National Accounts roles, and enables our NAMS to have fulfilling and engaging involvement at all stages of the commercial cycle.
This lends itself to a NAM who understands the foodservice sector but would like more involvement in the procurement aspect of the process.
We are seeking to speak to candidates with a background in Foodservice National Accounts and strong commercial skills
- The ideal candidate will have worked within National Accounts for a Foodservice manufacturer.
- We will also consider strong, commercially minded candidates with experience working for major Foodservice wholesalers.
- Candidates with experience of product procurement or interfacing with outsourced manufacturing partners or from a trading background will be of strong interest.
- Candidates must be of a commercial mindset, and enjoy implementing complex solutions for clients.
