Job Description

Job Title – National Account Manager (Sports Nutrition) – Convenience & Symbol Groups

Location – South West England

Package – Competitive basic with generous benefits package

Are you a driven and passionate National Account Executive/Commercial Executive ready to take that next leap forward in your career within FMCG? Perhaps you are an existing National Account Manager who fancies the challenge of a new category?

I am currently recruiting for a National Account Manager role within the rapidly growing Sports Nutrition sector!

You will be responsible for selling the companies’ broad range of protein bars, cookies, shakes and powders into the existing account base of major UK Symbol Groups.

As a nation it is noticeable that we are becoming more and more health conscious, but should we have to compromise flavour for health benefits and a pre-workout boost? Well, not anymore…

With two new exciting product launches ready to go in September including a crisp based snack and a fresh ready meal, the business has invested heavily into NPD, so you can really have it all – nutrition and great taste! This investment in NPD has so far led to 20% sales growth year on year with this anticipated to double in the next 12 months and the business set to quadruple in size within 3 years. Ambitious plans for a brand that is already a market leader!

So, what’s in it for you?? You’ll be promoting a well-established and popular award-winning sports nutrition brand and gaining full P&L responsibility over some major Symbol Groups. Furthermore, if you have a true passion for Sports Nutrition and Protein based products then what better than selling the exact foods you like to consume to maintain that healthy lifestyle! Additionally, due to the rapid company growth you can expect significant career development opportunities to progress to Senior NAM, Controller and beyond!

All we ask is that you based in or around (within 1 hour) of the South West of England and have experience in branded Food or Consumer goods sales ideally at National level. On this occasion, it is a requirement that you have prior experience to selling to Convenience/Symbol channel – the likes of Spar, Premier, Best-One, Tesco Express etc…

With a generous and competitive basic on offer along with a great benefits package and true career development prospect available what are you waiting for?
