Job Description

Category Controller – Off Trade


Excellent salary & benefits package

This is one of the biggest brand names in drinks. A young, vibrant and dynamic company, they are looking for a Category Controller to form part of their Off Trade marketing team. Often seen as a creative and quirky company, their globally recognised brand has a major presence in the both the on and off trade. They require people that have bright ideas, are positive, entrepreneurial and enthusiastic. This is an autonomous, creative position working with a high profile FMCG brand; opportunities like this are extremely rare!

You’ll be responsible for leading the Category team to execute sales and category initiatives. You will have a team of 4 direct reports in order to help you achieve this – 3 Category Managers and 1 Graduate. You won’t have any direct category management responsibilities but will support the category team in devising and implementing category plans by allocating resource in the team. You'll have a great Manager who really invests time to make you be the best you can be!

You’re most probably a Category/Senior Category Manager working with a branded consumer goods at the moment. You may have a team of 1 direct report and you’re looking to expand this further and take on some broader responsibilities. Knowledge of off trade customers would be beneficial – grocery, convenience, impulse, high street etc. You must be passionate about what you do but have the ability to work in a business that are extremely non-corporate and don’t take themselves too seriously.

Whilst we would like to respond to all our on-line applicants, regrettably we are unable to do so due to the high volumes we receive. If you've not heard from us within two weeks, unfortunately on this occasion your application has been unsuccessful.
