Commercial Manager | Fresh Produce | Home/Office Based

This is a great opportunity to join a business which is one of few to cause a shake-up in the fresh produce industry. They are owned and backed by their Growers and have interests in a range of countries around the world, allowing them to supply the retailers 52 weeks of the year. Thanks to the growth they are experiencing, they are now looking for an experienced Commercial Manager to help this growth continue and reach the next level.

The Job:
You will be working closely with the Managing Director in order to deliver the commercial plan for the business.
The main focus of the business currently is on UK retailers, but there is a big drive to develop further relationships with European retailers over the next couple of years as well.
You will need to keep in close contact with all stakeholders, including their 3rd party packers, to ensure you keep a close eye on the various movements of products.

The Candidate:
Not only will you have in-depth commercial experience within fresh produce (fruit preferably) but you will also have a real passion for the industry. It is this passion which will help drive things forward.
A deep understanding of the end to end supply chain, moving produce around the world and ensuring it arrives at the customer in peak condition.
A keen eye for detail is going to be crucial. Their business is built around delivering the best quality at really competitive prices, leaving very little margin for error.

The business is very flexible on the level of person they bring in. Whether this is a National Account Manager looking to take their first step into a Commercial Manager role, or it is a seasoned pro looking for a change. Salary will be commensurate with the level of experience you can bring to bear.
