National Account Manager - Foodservice

Up to £40,000 DOE + car

We are looking for an experienced National Account Manager with proven experience in the foodservice arena for this fantastic opportunity with a bakery / health food company who have enjoyed a growth of 100% year-on-year for the past few years and who will organically continue to do so for quite some time yet. This is a rarely available opportunity that entails both new business sales and the ongoing account management of already existing business throughout the UK along with some international travel as well.

You will be responsible for managing and creating accounts throughout the UK and abroad, but applicants should ideally reside in the Central Scotland area to be able to work from the company premises in Lanarkshire. This position requires someone with strong new business sales skills, account and commercial management skills and who is excellent at building relationships at all levels. This genuinely is a fantastic opportunity to join a great business with excellent products at a time of significant further growth for them.

It is essential that applicants have relevant National Account experience dealing with as many of the major national food supermarket retailers as possible and have knowledge of their ordering and buying systems. Experience within health food, short shelf life or bakery products would also be very beneficial and highly desired, as would you having experience of working with a brand rather than own-label products.

The starting salary for this sales position is between £30,000 - £40,000, possibly further negotiable, and is depending on and commensurate with experience. A full driving licence is of course required for this position as is your willingness for the required travelling with the role. This is currently a salary-only role but this is something that may be looked at after 12 months in the position and as you further progress and achieve in the role.

Applications will be treated with the strictest of confidence. If you feel that you meet the requirements for this role and would like to apply, please do so through the link provided. A well-written, detailed and fully up to date CV, along with a covering letter specific to this vacancy, would of course add significant weight to your application.

Please note that due to application levels and the specific requirements for this position, only the most suitable applicants can normally be contacted for further progression. Please refer to our website for details of how your information may be held.
