A foodie Commercial Manager to drive sales growth of chilled food in to foodservice sectors.

This role for Commercial Manager will give you genuine freedom to make crucial decisions in a company that has progressed continuously over the past decade. They have no intention of slowing down, with turnover this year projected in excess of £20million and recent expansion of 50%. This is a fast-paced company, forward-thinking with a real can-do attitude. This means a highly autonomous role for you, an opportunity to take ownership and mould the opportunity for growth.

This role will require a strong culinary background either with previous experience as a Chef or working in food NPD. Essentially sales growth will be based on the strength of products and not just numbers and cost. The company takes great pride in the quality of their bespoke products and this role will suit an individual who has a genuine love of food. Experience in a commercial function within a food manufacturing environment is necessary to ensure that you fully understand the complexities that come with mass produced food so you can have frank and intelligent conversations with clients and manage account relationships. Sales within foodservice sectors will be highly advantageous including Food To Go, Premium Contract Catering and Quick Service Restaurants.

What will you be doing?

  • Liaising with new and existing customers to understand their requirements, product briefs and aspirations
  • Working with colleagues, to develop products that meet the customer's requirements and meet our and their quality, technical and commercial standards
  • Reaching agreements with customers for the prices of new and existing products so that the business delivers the margins we require
  • Working with colleagues to ensure that all products are accurately costed, taking into account material costs, factory material yields and labour cost

In summary, if you have a strong and demonstrable background in food and have either made the move in to commercial or you are looking for an opportunity to step in to food sales and premium quality business then this is the role for you.
