Head of Sales and Marketing
Our client is one of the market and brand leaders in their sector, and product group. They have been consistently successful, growing organically year on year for decades, and their products are sold both in the UK and across Europe.
As a result of continued growth, they are now looking for a Head of Sales and Marketing to manage the day to day sales and marketing activities of the organization as well as setting the long term commercial strategy for the business.
The business structure however remains lean and fast so your attitude and approach to work are key. The company and role will not suit someone wanting to work in an ivory tower; this is somewhere to roll up your sleeves and get stuck in, leading a small team.
Your challenge would be to develop growth - identifying insights and category growth drivers, managing a challenging innovation pipeline, delivering new packaging and product formats and driving brand activation and promotional initiatives in conjunction with the company's major customers and markets. The role will then be to lead the sales team in executing this strategy.
Our ideal candidate
In what is a challenging and unusual role, you will have a track record of driving market beating growth in an FMCG environment, with particular strengths in team management, strategy setting and sales development. They want someone to grab hold of the entire process and really deliver.
Our client is a dynamic and successful business and this role will be challenging and demanding as they look to grow further and so will enable the right candidate to develop their sales and marketing skills.
The successful applicant will report to the Managing Director and ideally live within commutable distance of their Somerset Head Office. There could be a relocation package for the right candidate.
The package includes a generous basic and performance driven bonus and executive benefits.
To apply please send your CV and a covering letter indicating your current salary details and notice period.
