National Account Manager | Garden Sundries | South West
Salary ~£45-50k
Are you an experienced National Account Manager with a background in supplying the major garden centre groups? If so, we'd like to hear from you.

About Our Client
Our client is a leading supplier of garden products to a number of garden centres and retailers. They are currently going through a period of substantial growth due to their quality products, relationships with customers and service levels. They are an established, family-run business with a great reputation within the industry. They operate a very hands-on business and have an entrepreneurial style.

About the Role
This role will all be about delivering sustainable, profitable business with the customers. You will utilise your experience in managing relationships with key customers to drive commercial results. You will be able to work closely with customers to ensure the first-class presentation of products, customer experience and sales. You will be able to build long term relationships with customers to create joint business plans, ensuring the continued success of the business. You will need to be able to get hands-on and be willing to get stuck in - a real doer. You will be able to approach new retailers with a range of branded products as well as deliver growth with existing customers. Ideally, you will have end-to-end experience and understand the challenges and importance of supply chain and sourcing products.

The Ideal Candidate
The ideal candidate will have a proven track record of delivering account growth and commercial results within the group centres in a garden product range. You will also be able to deliver new business with targeted garden group customers. You will be willing to travel, get stuck in and be devoted to delivering a great service. You will be a strong leader with an array of soft skills to manage relationships with internal and external stakeholders. You will be able to make decisions for yourself and work autonomously. Ideally, you will have experience in a product category that involves far east sourcing and end-to-end supply chain.

Minimum Requirements
To be considered for this role you will need to have a proven track record of delivering commercial results within the garden channel and group customers. You will have a great can-do attitude and be able to work well within the team.

Application Process
The successful applicant will move through 2 stages, which will include a presentation/task. This can take a few weeks to complete.
