Commercial Manager

A lot of job adverts will claim to offer you an exciting opportunity, but at a time when we have new owners investing, where we are market leaders in a growing category (with a barely scratched surface), and where you’ll have the scope to design your own channel strategy enabling us to optimise our reach to consumers, exciting really is a word that applies here.

Our sights are set firmly on the future and we need forward thinking, ambitious sales people who are as excited about our brand and its potential as we are to help us to grow the Whitworths portfolio. You’ll partner our retailers, managing our existing own label and branded business whilst also delivering our bold NPD plans. We’re already a brand associated with trust and taste, meaning you can focus on the sales.

You’ll sell both our established baking lines, but also our healthier snacking products which are booming – we’ve seen 80% year on year growth from our “Shots” brand. We’re currently leaders within the emerging ‘healthy snacking’ category, with a raft of NPD in the pipeline, we are perfectly positioned to satisfy the changing consumer trends. We’re based in Northamptonshire, but as long as you’re willing to travel to our offices each week, we don’t mind where you’re based.

We’ve identified a clear development structure within our commercial team which means we’re actively seeking those with ambitions to grow. We’re looking for not just today’s commercial manager, but tomorrow’s controller.

So if you’re nutty (sorry) about sales, can demonstrate proven sales experience within a leading FMCG organisation whilst successfully managing a P&L and have an ability to turn insight into action, we’d love to hear from you.

Whitworths are the UK’s leader in dried fruits, nuts and seeds. We’re proud to be widely recognised and trusted by our working partners, international suppliers and, most importantly, by millions of customers as manufacturers of innovative, tasty, healthy products.
There are many reasons to come and work with us, but the biggest reason is so that you have a job you love and a company you are proud to say you work for. In addition, you’ll also have access to childcare vouchers, a workplace pension, life assurance, on-site occupational health – and of course there are always our delicious products to snack on! 

Whitworths is growing every day, so we are always looking for talented individuals (at every level) who can deliver STAR potential. If you’re ready to deliver your best, let’s talk.
