This is a global business in the food ingredients sector, that has a growing presence here in the UK. With a focus on loyalty and reliability, the business has created a new position, born out of sustained growth. As such, we’re looking for a B2B Account Manager.

You’ll split your time between being in the office where you can soak up industry knowledge from a long-standing, expert team, and getting out in front of your customer base, which is comprised of food manufacturers based all over the UK. Defining an annual sales plan, you’ll use your commercial mindset to ensure turnover, gross margin and market share objectives are met, but due to the nature of the products, you’ll also be able to act innovatively, getting to the heart of customers’ needs and building strong relationships based on problem solving rather than your wins being purely price-based.

We’d like to hear from you if you like the sound of joining a global business that, despite a long-standing presence in the food ingredients sector, is continuing to expand and has real ambition to further its position in the UK. We’ll need to see the following from you:

  • At least 4 years’ account management experience on a B2B level
  • Evidence of being able to establish and maintain long-term business relationships
  • Success in building turnover, profit and market share
  • Strong influencing and negotiation skills
  • A willingness to travel, both in the UK and further afield, spending time away from home when needed
  • A driving licence

Experience in the food ingredients sector would be advantageous, but we’d also consider someone who has sold machinery, chemicals or other products that require a technical understanding, into the UK food manufacturing industry. Why? Because the training you’ll receive in this specialist field will be second to none!
