Job Description

Do you want to work in an autonomous environment, where you can be really hands-on with customers, using your technical mind for commercial advantage?

Our client offers a range of functional ingredients, including emulsifiers, enzymes and texturants. Part of an international group, the UK team operates as a close-knit unit, with each division having a specific market focus. There's now a rare vacancy for a Savoury Technical Sales Manager to focus on a range of applications including savoury sauces, meat and fish products, soups and ready meals. This is a genuinely home-based role whereby you'll plan your own diary - there's no need to plan customer meetings to hit a KPI. This business wants you to be in front of customers when there's real purpose, to build strong, genuine business relationships.

We're looking for a Savoury B2B Account Manager who can demonstrate a combination of technical and commercial skills in the ingredients channel. You'll work closely with Development teams, both internally and externally, so a strong appreciation of NPD is necessary, whether that's through a Food Science degree, professional experience or ideally, a mix of both. The role contains elements of both account management and new business development, so demonstrable sales figures in both is required.

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.
