Job Description

Do you want to be part of a rapidly growing business with quality and sustainability at its core? We are recruiting on behalf of a company that has great relationships with the majority of major UK retailers, as well as a number of food service and food manufacturing businesses. Importing from long-standing suppliers on a global level, the company has gone from strength to strength in recent years, with the backing of an experienced management team. A vacancy now exists for a National Account Manager.

The Job

* Predominantly office-based in the Surrey/Berkshire region, with national and international travel when required

* Managing a great range of National Accounts including major multiples, discounters and some industrial customers

* Focus on long-term relationships - this is not transactional!

* Key interface between NPD & Technical departments to deliver customer requirements

* Analytical angle - in order to build a case on how to solve customers' needs

The Requirements

* National account management experience with major retailers

* Excellent presentation skills

* Articulate and numerate, with the ability to analyse and solve problems

* Independent thinker - there will inevitably be challenges that you have not faced before!

* Experience across a variety of food sectors would be advantageous

This position would suit someone who is accustomed to a degree of autonomy in a medium sized business; but it could also suit someone who has worked for a blue-chip market leader and is bored of following the script. If this is you, apply now.

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.
