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.
