National Account Executive – Drinks Industry

Salary £25,000 - £30,000 + Company Car + Bonus + Benefits

Home Based

A fantastic opportunity has arisen to work with one of the UK’s leading beer and cider manufacturers. With some of the country’s most iconic brands in their portfolio they have a real presence across both the On and Off Trade, strengthened by an exciting range of premium products. After a strong year in the Top 4 Grocers they now require a National Account Executive to support the current Senior National Account Manager on their Asda and Waitrose accounts.

As National Account Executive you will play a key role in the development of both the Asda and Waitrose accounts. You will attend all customer meetings and be the lead contact for the supply chain teams. Initially you will assist with budgeting and credit control as well as dealing directly with assistant buyers. You will liaise with marketing and third party agencies to implement brand activation and support with market analysis alongside the category team. Once you are settled in the role you will be given the opportunity to take on a partial P&L with a view to progress to National Account Manager over time.

In order to be considered for this opportunity it is essential that you have sales experience from within the FMCG industry. You could be an established National Account Executive looking for a fresh challenge; or a talented Regional Sales Executive with experience working within the Grocery channel looking to make the next step. Candidates with drinks industry experience will be preferred but stand-out individuals from other product backgrounds are still encouraged to apply. To be a success in this role you will need to be a driven and passionate individual with a desire for progression. As it is a field based position you will also need to be comfortable working in an autonomous environment.
