National Account Executive
A recent acquisition by a private equity firm has seen vastly increased investment in the business, which is expanding its already considerable influence in the ambient bakery category. The company has a view to breaking into the competitive European market, and also to consolidating both historic and recent wins with major retailers in the UK.
As a result of their growth, and to ensure it continuation, the business is looking to appoint an Executive to assist their Business Unit Controllers across major mults accounts. The role will be challenging: you will be taking on a lot of responsibility very quickly. The role will include presentation to, and negotiation with, some of the business’ key customers, and you will also be expected to have a good analytical grasp of commercial data, and to create reports and make suggestions to the benefit of your Business Unit Controller.
You will be a recent graduate or educated to graduate level with a couple of years’ experience, ideally within a Top 5 setting. Exposure to commercial admin, data and reports would be helpful; but above all, you will be an individual with good analytical skills, commercial awareness and a willingness to grow into a challenging commercial role.
If you want to be part of a growing business, and are willing to learn quickly and implement that knowledge effectively, then your path of progression will be limited only by yourself. There will be plenty of opportunity to develop your skillset, and the role will set you up to progress either internally or externally.
