Job Description

National Account Manager – Bestway (Drinks)

Home Based

To £55,000 basic, 20% bonus, company car, pension & healthcare

This is one of the biggest brand names in drinks. A young, vibrant and dynamic company, they are looking for a National Account Manager to add value to their Wholesale channel. 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.

Reporting to the Channel Manager, you will have the ability to establish effective joint working relationships with key people both internally and externally, including regular reviews with key decision makers on the accounts. Account management responsibilities will include responsibility for Bestway whilst delivering agreed volume targets from business planning. Previous experience working with the Bestway account would be a massive advantage or alternatively wholesale or C&C exposure.

Ideally you would have a minimum of 3 years FMCG sales experience within an account management capacity. You must have exposure to either the Wholesale or Cash & Carry channels. They are looking for someone who is educated to degree level and has a proven track record of sales. You will be an astute, resilient and intrinsically driven individual who is a self-starter and great relationship builder. Strong communication skills at all levels are essential as well as strong administrative and organisational skills.

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.
