Support whenever you need it, but no handholding. The autonomy to make decisions that will have a big impact on the business. A robust supply chain to ensure excellent service levels. An incredibly motivated team around you that are driven by success.
It’s rare to have even 3 out of 4 of these, but this is a company that can offer all 4, and plenty more. Having achieved jaw-dropping growth in 2020, the business is growing again, this time to expand its presence in continental Europe.
The company supplies a range of supplements that have a whole host of different benefits – from everyday vitamin tablets through to supplements designed to enhance your immune system, aid your complexion, or even boost your brain function. Walk down any UK high street and you’ll see their products.
We’re looking for a Commercial Manager to focus on building a presence in continental Europe. Don’t be fooled by the title – we’re not looking for a “strategic operator” who wants to pass the hands-on stuff to someone else – far from it. Instead, this is a position where you will indeed need a strategic approach in terms of evaluating commercial opportunities in various geographies, but you’ll then be making those approaches yourself and pulling together the various departments to fulfil those orders.
Why’s it exciting? Well, this is a company that will invest in you. Got the European market to a size where you need to recruit your own Account Manager to support you? They’ll make it happen. If there’s a business case, the money is always there to expand and as such, the overseas market has such huge potential that we need someone to be laser focused with their approach.
For this, we’re looking for someone with international experience, ideally from a background in a nutritionally focused business. Maybe you’ve been a Country Manager or a Trading Manager for a specific country and you want a bigger stage now – this is exactly that.
You’ll clearly demonstrate a drive for results, examples of how you’ve made things happen in your previous position and ultimately, how you’re the person who is best placed to embrace this massive opportunity. Needless to mention, you’ll be career-orientated and on an upward trajectory in your career path. A second language would be preferable and you’ll be able to get to the office (North West England) on a regular basis, to work closely with other departments.
