We are working with a long established and very progressive fresh produce business. They are currently looking for an Account Manager to work within their Commercial team. You will be working closely with the Senior Commercial team to give you the development you need to continue your progression within Account Management. This is a great opportunity for an aspiring Commercial candidate to take their next step within a business that has an excellent track record of developing their people from within.
You will be assisting in the management of some of their largest accounts, which often throws up interesting challenges which need to be navigated. It is important that you gain a good overall understanding of how the business operates and also the overall category that you are in. This will allow you to stay on top of any changes and react as quickly as possible. Clear communication within the customer and the business is vital as you will often be the person who relates changes to the wider audience.
In an ideal world, you will have experience of working within fresh produce (chilled food if not) having dealt with one or more of the major retailers in an account executive or junior account manager capacity. Strong interpersonal skills are essential as internal and external communication is a vital part of the role. A good level of Excel knowledge is important as well.
If you believe your background matches the criteria above and want to find out more about the role, please get in touch with Morten Andresen on 01780 480530 or apply via the link.
