Job Details

Do you want to be part of a brand new function in an organisation that is recognised across the world?

Do you want to play a key role in helping food and drink businesses succeed?

And do you want to do that whilst working just outside a small town steeped in history, amidst an idyllic countryside backdrop? If so, this is a truly unique opportunity.

Having been established for over 100 years, Campden BRI is well known for its breadth of services which include analysis & testing, operational support, research & innovation, and knowledge management. With over 2,400 member companies, including the top 10 UK retailers and the top 15 global food & beverage manufacturers, clients view the organisation as an extension of their own in-house technical team.

A very exciting change is underway, as a Sales & Account Management team is being put in place. This is a new function for the organisation as it looks to become really proactive with its campaigns, with a view to building multi-level relationships with clients and ultimately, increasing spend. You will have strong support from the Marketing team, as a number of key new appointments are also being made in that department.

We’re looking for two Technical Sales & Account Executives to join the newly formed department. You’ll be customer-facing, in a position that has an emphasis on first identifying, and then solving, client problems. One of the key strengths of Campden BRI is its breadth of services, so a key part of the task at hand will be articulating to clients what the organisation can offer them, spotting opportunities where nobody else can! A really collaborative role, you’ll work closely with the Marketing, Membership and various Scientific teams to plan structured client approaches, with big spenders and high growth potential clients being of paramount importance. Ultimately though, you’ll make every client you deal with feel like they’re the only client you have, due to the exceptional service levels that you’ll give to them.

The successful candidates for these positions will be able to demonstrate scientific credibility through their education and career to date. At least 2 years’ experience of selling into the food industry would be preferred in a category that demands significant technical input, such as functional food ingredients, flavours or a service offering. Experience in a factory or a laboratory environment would also be beneficial. Due to the need to build strong internal relationships, candidates should live within about 90 minutes of Chipping Campden, Gloucestershire, or be prepared to relocate to the beautiful local area.

All enquiries are being handled by 1485 Search and any direct applications to Campden BRI will be forwarded to our retained consultancy, 1485 Search, for consideration.

All applications will be acknowledged.


A boutique search firm focused on the Ingredients & Nutrition markets, both Human and Animal.

We have a strong reach in the UK and internationally too, but that doesn't mean we don't offer a personal service - that's at the heart of what we do. We put a big emphasis on providing real value for our clients, who we aim to get to know inside out.

Naturally, we'll probably know a bit about you as a client already, as market specialists, but its the next step that's really important - getting to know the culture within your business, what sort of person will be happy there, and the opportunities available to top performers. That's where we truly excel, and that's why we provide real value - your next employee is likely to be with you for a long time when you engage 1485 to find him or her, because of how thorough we are in our search process.

From a candidate point of view, when you register with us you'll be working with a recruiter who knows your market, but who won't make assumptions. We know everyone has different aspirations, different priorities and different strengths which might not come across from a CV alone, so we'll talk to you and get to know you, with a view to ensuring we understand you as an individual. Only this way can we decide which companies and which opportunities will be of most interest to you.

If you like the sound of what we do, give us a call and we'll do our best. We won't over-promise, but we will aim to over-deliver.

Want to know more? Either email us: or give us a call on +44 (0)1943 662 600 and we'll be delighted to discuss further.
