Business Development Manager | Fresh Produce | Evesham
We are currently working with a successful and well established fresh produce grower and importer. The last few years have seen the business develop significantly with their existing team, but feel that they have missed some chances by being spread too thinly. As a result, they are looking to appoint a Business Development Manager to continue this growth. For the right person, there is a real opportunity to drive growth and ultimately take on a directorship with the business.
You will be working very closely with the senior management team and working with them to set the growth strategy and ultimately implement it. Over time you will develop a good understanding of the procurement side of the business as well so that you can gain a better understanding of the full supply chain and how to get the most out of it.
You will have a good level of experience in the Fresh Produce industry, ideally with an understanding of a range of UK grown Vegetables and Leaf crop. A proven track record of developing business with a range of customers is crucial. This could be within Retail (primary and secondary), Wholesale, Foodservice or B2B. Any experience in procurement would be a distinct advantage, but as long as you are willing to learn then that is the most important thing.
