THE COMPANY

A highly successful, well-invested, global confectionery business with a UK-based division, who have more than doubled sales over the last 5 years and are looking to do the same again by 2025 through both UK and International markets.

They have a highly collaborative sales & marketing team that works with pace, enthusiasm and a clear, well-invested, brand-led marketing strategy focused on consumer insight-led, product innovative, effective brand communications and driving targeted trade listings, distribution and promotional activities. Their brands and target consumers echo a strong sense of fun and energy which sets the cultural tone across this supportive yet driven business.

THE ROLES

As part of their investment for growth in 2022 they are looking to appoint two home-based National Account Executives who will report to a UK SNAM. These exciting new roles will take responsibility for developing existing customers and winning new accounts across the convenience retail and high street discounter channels. You will shape brand-led trading proposals, contact buyers and build relationships to help drive new points of distribution for a range of highly engaging, added-value and fast-selling products.

Above all, the roles are about connecting with the brand’s personality and going out each day to ‘SELL’ the brand and product proposition with authority, energy, enthusiasm and ambition to achieve your commercial objectives.

The successful candidates will be fully supported by the senior commercial team and expected to step up to full NAM status within the next few years.

THE CANDIDATES

Having graduated, your career in FMCG sales has matured over the last 3-5 years within a major branded food, drink or confectionery business in Territory Sales or Business Development and you have progressed up into a Regional Account Management or National Account Executive role. You have developed a sound understanding of modern account management activities, which must include a basic level of experience with negotiation and category insight-led, fact-based selling at head office level across any of the major retail or wholesale channels.

You are now seeking a career move into a more flexible working environment where you will have greater responsibly and the freedom to take commercial selling decisions and really go out and make things happen. Oh, and your sales results will be fully appreciated and recognised across the international commercial team and the wider business.

So, if you’re ready for that next career move, please apply by sending your CV together with benefits package details and quoting reference MS/2281 to mark@smithcarey.co.uk or call Mark Smith on 07747 847214 for a confidential discussion about this attractive, career-shaping opportunity.
