About You

We are looking for an energetic & charismatic leader who is strategic & commercial, but also comfortable in a hands-on role, and enjoys rolling up their sleeves and getting stuck in alongside the team. Whilst you will have a growth mindset, it’s just as important to be motivated by contributing to a culture based on strong values and high performance – somewhere people aspire to be or want to come back to during their career. It’s just as important as any other capability - your drive to inspire a culture of collaboration and delivery. You’ll have an organised mindset, be strong on detail and systemisation but remain entrepreneurial at heart.

You don’t need to come from the industry but having an interest & passion for their brands, products & customers will clearly be an advantage. Someone from an FMCG or Retail background who has progressed their careers through category or key account sales positions into management roles would fit well in this type of position.

This company has big growth plans and business performance is critical, so we are looking for a high performer, someone who is ambitious, career orientated and puts a big focus on company culture.Apply Now!
