We are currently working with a privately owned business with a great reputation, who are looking to strengthen their team with the appointment of a National Account Manager. They represent a number of manufacturers across multiple categories and have successfully built strong relationships with the majority of the food retailers and discounters. Due to the diverse range of products that they offer, they have access to multiple NPD pipelines and always have a new product to launch.

A strong negotiator, you will have a track record of delivering commercial results and successfully pushing through price increases and a greater range of products.

You will be able to show a track record of results across multiple food categories.

The Ideal Candidate:
The ideal candidate will come with a proven track record of delivering increased business with the UK retailers. You will be able to demonstrate your ability to work with the retailers to deliver increased sales and volume, whilst maintaining margins. You will have experience in different food categories and be able to apply a robust process to any food category. You will be a strong team player and be able to work within a smaller business to deliver results.
