Job Description

Title – Head of Retail Sales (Savoury/Convenience and Nutrition)

Salary - £50000 - £80000 Basic + Bonus/Commission + Company Car + Benefits package

Location – Home Based (UK)

Are you a high achieving NAM or SNAM with a proven track record of sales growth within Grocery Multiples? Would you relish the opportunity to move into a leadership role and help build the own label and branded division across the UK for an internationally recognised food manufacturer?

The rewards are significant…. Not only will you gain great exposure to a multitude of accounts across retail, you will also have a fun and diverse range of ambient and chilled products to work with across Savoury/Convenience and Sports Nutrition categories. And if you love NPD then this business are constantly looking to develop and grow their current product offering!

The growth rate of the company is outstanding with a 60% increase in retail sales in the last 2 years with ambition to double revenue again by 2022/23.

This is a home-based Head of Retail Sales role, with occasional trips to the UK Headquarters in the Midlands and some international travel.

Ideally you will have background in ambient or chilled food sales with a key focus on account management and business development with Grocery and Discounter channels. Being able to give strong examples of how you have grown sales and potentially improved margins across own label and branded would be of keen interest.

This position is likely to include the management of one National Key Account Executive so any existing management experience would be an advantage. Don’t worry if not though… as long as you can display strong leadership skills and a willingness to grow and develop then that’ll work just fine.

The salary for this role ranges from £50000 - £80000 basic (DOE) + Bonus/Commission + Company Car and generous benefits package.
