Job Description

The transition from NPD to technical sales is a tough one to make. You've got the creativity and scientific knowledge, you're great with customers, you're happy to travel but you've never been able to prove yourself in sales, so the company opts for the tried and tested candidate instead. We've seen it many times!

Luckily, our client is more forward-thinking than that. With huge growth plans in place, the business is adding multiple additions to its sales team. There are a range of roles available across different levels, so we want to speak to you if you are:

- A recent Food Science Graduate, who wants to use their degree but doesn't want to be stuck in a lab or a kitchen all day

- An experienced Technical Sales Manager within the food ingredients sector

- An experienced NPD professional who wants to make the step across into a more commercially-orientated role

Offering a range of food ingredients, this business sells to manufacturers in the bakery, dairy, confectionery, soup, ready meal, sauce and dessert sectors - so we're looking for foodies who will enjoy speaking to both NPD and Purchasing professionals across a diverse range of B2B markets.

You will need:

- Your own vehicle and driving license

- To be able to travel and spend nights away from home when necessary

- To be situated within half an hour of Leeds

- Plenty of enthusiasm and great communication skills!

If this is you, get in touch and we'll tell you more about this unique opportunity to join a global and growing business.

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.
