Commercial Planner | Canterbury | Fresh Produce
We are working with a well-established and highly regarded International Fresh Produce business who have a requirement for a Commercial Planner to join their team in Kent. As a result of the vertically integrated nature of the business, this role will be quite varied and would really suit someone who is keen to explore a position with broad scope. This role will predominantly be focussed on supporting the Commercial Director, but you will be liaising with Growers, Technical teams and Customers on a regular basis.
You will be providing key in country support for a range of functions for the global Commercial team. This will cover Business Development along with Quality, Technical and Grower support. You will need to get under the skin of the business and understand its key strengths in order to provide the best internal and external support. Given the international nature of this role, you will have the opportunity to travel within the EU and potentially further as the role develops.
You will have a background in Fresh Produce (ideally soft fruit) and be looking for a position which is multi-faceted and fast paced. A background as a Category Analyst, Junior Commercial/Planning or similar roles would be beneficial. You will need to be a motivated and enthusiastic team player who can work well under their own steam. You will be part of a small UK team, but a large international team so you will need to be comfortable with working remotely and connecting with team members over video calls etc
