Job Description

This is a rare opportunity for someone who is very strong technically to take their first step into technical sales.

The Company

A small team in the UK, so you won't just be a face in the crowd! But part of a wider international group, so plenty of scope for future career development. Well recognised for working collaboratively with customers, which range from small manufacturers through to international processors.

The Opportunity

You'll be passed some established customers to manage and grow, but there's great prospects to bring on board new customers by showcasing what you can do for them. Whilst you'll be price competitive, you'll work chiefly on a project development basis, using your technical skills to demonstrate the advantages of the ingredients you'll be offering - including enzymes, flavours and functional blends. You'll travel across the UK, really getting to know your customers' frustrations and requirements, converting these into commercial opportunities and ultimately, sales revenue.

The Requirements

We're looking for someone who has a highly technical mind, with experience of functional ingredients for meat and fish applications. You'll have the communication skills and commercial awareness to step across into a technical sales position - often regarded as the hardest step to take, with so many companies looking for prior sales experience. Naturally, you'll be a people-person and ideally, hold a relevant qualification in Meat Technology or similar.

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.
