Commercial Manager | Agriculture | Lancashire

Salary - Dependent on experience

About our client:-
We are working with an agricultural business who were established over 30 years ago and been leading the way in the region ever since. They have been the agronomists of choice for most of this period and that shows no signs of stopping. With future proofing in mind, the business is looking to find an established Commercial Manager who can support the MD with their existing customers, whilst also looking to continue their growth.

About the role:-
You will be the commercial lead for the business ensuring their experienced agronomists and customers are supported as much as is needed. The customers form the backbone of the business, with a number of the relationships extending back to the origins of the company. You will be responsible for ensuring these customers continue to receive the high levels of service they have come to expect. In addition to this, you will also be utilising and extending your network, in order to generate opportunities for the agronomists to take over and develop. The business covers an area across the North West and down to Shropshire. Alongside the core commercial responsibilities, you will also be working closely with the Office Manager and Distribution Manager, to ensure overall success of the business.

The Ideal Candidate:-
You will have experience within Agri-business with a track record of growing sales and managing a team. Bringing your own customer base would be an advantage but is not essential if you tick other key boxes. There is a significant opportunity over the next few years to take on more responsibility as things develop, so you will need to be driven and hungry to do the best you can. The role will be split between time in the field visiting customers as well as spending time in the office.
