Job Details

Our client operates as an autonomous division of a large global group with diversified operations across a range of sectors. The team are operating in FMCG food and drink and have developed a unique offering over the last decades through integrating its group supply chain to become a recognized leader in its field.  This has been created a leading range of products that the retailers and consumers have come to select as part of their basket.

The business operates in a fast-paced environment involving branded and own label solutions. As such, you will have responsibility for delivering key growth through creation of commercial category marketing led solutions to grow existing and capture new commercial opportunities in retail and out of home markets.

Using category and shopper insights to lead core positioning in the market, you’ll be as comfortable managing a data led category team as driving strategic decisions with brand and agency managers.

You’ll be measured through the impact of your decisions on commercial growth across the UK and potentially European sites.

This role will offer a logical step for those who have collated a strong category marketing skill set within their career and have joined this with brand management.

To be successful, you will have a history of pushing hard within your internal and external stakeholders to ensure the full potential of the brand within retail and foodservice markets is realised.

Specialising in FMCG since 2003 within Commercial | Category | Creative

Company was created in 2006 as a specialist division specifically supporting category, shopper and net revenue professionals.  The brain child of Paul Nyman who realised at the time “we just didn’t know enough about category management and how it affects a business”.  Catmanjobs operates as a division of  Paul Nyman Consultancy, which was established in 2004 to support wider FMCG recruitment markets, after Paul was made redundant, and toured the UK recruitment market seeking employment to pay the mortgage.

During this journey he identified some of the most important characteristics for job seekers hunting for a new role:

  • Understand what  I, as a candidate can do.
  • Honestly tell me why I cannot perform in the role I applied for.
  • Know how your clients can advance my career.
  • Get back to me.
  • Don’t BS me. 

These have become entwined in the approach the team at Paul Nyman Consultancy take to support individuals achieve career success across the UK and Europe.

We offer not just recruitment, but wider career support and development through workshops which include national and international recruitment and development experience.

Not just a recruiter.

We enjoy being career developers.
