Business Development Manager

£32,500 - £37,500 per annum + bonus + benefits

Our client, SALSA, the food safety certification scheme for the UK's smaller producers, seeks to recruit a manager with a background in food safety, marketing and development.

Operating from a rural North Oxfordshire business centre conveniently located close to the M40, SALSA has enjoyed continuous year on year growth and expansion since its launch in 2007. With a current membership of c.1,500 active producers and packers, the scheme operators seek an enthusiastic individual with a significant food industry background and a proven track record of business development within the sector, particularly in working with retailers, foodservice providers and public-sector buyers to take the scheme to the next level and beyond.

This role would suit an ambitious individual with a strong empathy for, and genuine interest in, the ongoing growth and success of enterprising small businesses within the UK food supply chain. You will be equally at home in the production kitchen of a family business as the head offices of the major UK food buyers.

Reporting directly to the Scheme Director, you will also maintain a significant responsibility in reporting progress to the scheme’s governance board and executive partners.

Benefits include private medical insurance, 24 Days holiday + statutory Days, onsite restaurant and gym.

The role also carries significant personal and professional development opportunity and a discretionary annual bonus based on performance.
