Circa £45,000  + company car or allowance + benefits

Based: Manchester Airport 2 days per week

In this high-profile National Account Manager role you will be working with a top 4 grocery account and your principle focus will be to grow sales. This National Account is established with a small number of SKUs but will require careful and persistent development to realise their full potential. By speaking to all decision makers within the buying process the job holder will need to understand the needs of the business and how to meet these in all areas of pricing, promotion, and category development.

You will be responsible for negotiating all sales volume, trading terms and will have complete insight to your company’s cost base to create profitable yet attractive proposals.

We are looking for a professional hungry National Account Manager with current or recent experience of dealing with one of the top 4 grocery multiples, or a National Account Executive who has the desire to make the next step.

Ideally working within the off trade - alcoholic beverages industry, but we also consider Account Managers who want to move into drinks. We are looking for an individual with a proven ability to form strong internal relationships with the retailers, an excellent understanding of the supply chain mechanics and the commercial skills to do so profitably.

Great products, outstanding growth, a highly capable team and in the last 10 years has seen double digit growth, so a real modern-day success story.  Unlike other businesses they are more versatile, focussed, and ambitious. They understand the needs of their consumers and retailers and control all aspects of the supply chain to provide profitable solutions.

But this will not be like working for a large blue-chip corporation. They have tight sales and marketing team. You will have total financial insight and the ability to make fast decisions as you will have input to the UK business.
