With the challenges of Covid and Brexit still ongoing, distribution is as tough as ever in the food ingredients sector. Your employer is the key difference to how much fulfilment you’re getting when you’re putting in the hard yards.

We’re working with an international distributor who have an excellent reputation across the UK food manufacturing industry. The business combines an offering of ingredients and flavours from high profile principals with a customer focus that is second to none.

We’re looking for an Account Manager. You’ll deal with customers across the UK, in a variety of food and beverage categories – and the customer portfolio can be tweaked to play to your strengths. You’ll be joining a very high performing team – a team which massively overachieved on budget last year.

We’re looking for food ingredients distribution experience for this, or, at the very least, experience of selling a large range of food ingredients. Any experience with NPD to support your sales experience would be beneficial.

Why would you leave your job in distribution to go and join another distributor??

  • The financial reward. The company pay their Account Managers excellent salaries in exchange for their hard work, plus good bonuses and really a strong benefits package. The packages on offer are designed to attract the very best in the industry
  • The team culture. The team culture that the business has worked so hard to achieve enables each and every Account Manager to feel truly valued. That equates to activity trips away as a team, meals out together, nights out together, charity functions together – the sort of things that, when you’re home-based, make you feel truly valued and part of a supportive team
  • The support’s there when you need it, but there will be nobody looking over your shoulder. You’ll be empowered to make your own decisions and trusted to get those decisions right
  • Company reputation. This business is at the top of the tree when it comes to this sector – anybody who’s “in the know” will say the same. Standards are high, but if you’re the right person for this business, that will be a key attraction rather than something to worry about!
