Commercial Manager | Spalding | Fresh Produce
Salary - Competitive but dependent on experience
About the company:-
We are currently working with a very highly regarded Fresh Produce grower and importer who are looking to appoint a Commercial Manager to their team. As a leader in their field, they have a great track record for delivering consistent results to their customers both in the UK and in Europe.
About the Role:-
You will be working closely with the Commercial Director and will be responsible for managing and developing a couple of their key retail accounts. In addition to this, they are in a position where they are actively able to win new business and as a result need someone who can help with this. You will be responsible for negotiating customer pricing and managing the inevitable tenders. You will be acting as the customer champion for your accounts, ensuring your voice is heard and the accounts are serviced appropriately.
The Ideal Candidate:-
A background in Fresh Produce would be a distinct advantage. But more importantly, you will need to have Commercial experience managing one or more Top 6 retailers in a Fresh Food category. Attitude is crucial. You will need to be a team player and be willing to step outside of your job description should the need arise. The business has done really well on the back of the whole team pulling together and operating as one.
