Job Title: Business Development Executive
Location: North East
Package: £28,000 Basic + £8,000 Bonus + Car + Excellent Package
This a great chance for an outgoing and enthusiastic individual to join a growing business in a field-based sales and account management role. Working with an array of fantastic brands in cards and gifts including, this presents an excellent opportunity to develop your career in commercial FMCG sales.
You will manage a defined territory covering the North East – Newcastle, Lancashire, Tyne & Wear, Cumbria and Northumberland, with an existing account base of Independent and Convenience stores plus some specialist retailers, along with an element of new business development. Both the role and business are very customer focused; they want people who can work with their accounts and develop relationships, effectively acting as mini-Business Managers and supporting them via a mutual growth plan. They don’t employ “reps”.
The role draws on a whole host of your skills and abilities in working with the retailer – sales, account management, new business, creative merchandising. So, you’re going to need to be well prepared and organised, and confident in the fact that you will be operating remotely to targets and KPI’s.
You’ll need to be a livewire who really enjoys person to person contact, is looking to sell and achieve sales targets, and someone who thrives in this type of fast paced environment. Experience-wise, ideally you will be a graduate with a couple of years field sales under your belt in FMCG or B2B, if not then retail management or commercial sales. You need to be highly personable, with real vigour for life and work, and be able to tune in to the needs of the retailer. In any case, you will be looking for a fresh opportunity to make your mark, be capable and pragmatic and action orientated, and ultimately have a fun, outgoing and articulate character.
