Home based role – 1 days a week in Birmingham and Customer Visits as required.

ABOUT THE ROLE:

An exciting opportunity has arisen for you to join the Category Management team within our Poultry and Added-Value Division. As an experienced Category Manager, you will be responsible for playing a crucial role within the category management function at 2SFG.

You will be directly responsible for managing a key strategic account within the UKP customer portfolio, along with additional smaller accounts, based on the business’ requirements.

You will get exposure to a broad range of categories, functions and initiatives, giving you the experience and profile required to help you progress further within the business.

Some responsibilities include:

  • Responsible for owning, developing, and leading the strategic category agenda with your designated customers
  • Establish proactive, collaborative customer relationships, built on trust and objectivity, aiming to be the “go-to” supplier for Category & Insight, ensuring a broad range of contacts within the customer up to a senior level
  • Providing actionable insight-based recommendations and category growth plans aligned to customer requirements, and delivering against 2SFG commercial objectives
  • Responsible for leading and delivering customer specific strategy and innovation days alongside commercial and NPD
  • Ensure the voice of the shopper/consumer is considered in all senior level customer strategy sessions, including Top2Tops and business tenders

If you’re looking for a role that will enable you to grow and operate in a dynamic, fast-paced food-focused environment, where opportunities to develop your career are realistic, then this could be for you!

ABOUT YOU:

If you’re fanatical about food, thrive under pressure and have the can-do spirit that has created the 2SFG brand and culture we have today, then bring those qualities along with the above and you will have the recipe for success:

  • Experienced in a similar role or Category Executive position looking for progression.
  • Action oriented storyteller; creates the "So What" from the insights and sets the agenda with the retailer and 2sfg
  • Trade and consumer marketing experience would be preferable
  • Can demonstrate sound commercial understanding and experience
  • Previous experience of market research and Insight generation preferred
  • Experience user of data such as Kantar, IRI, or Dunnhumby.
