Senior Commercial Manager

You’re an established National Account Manager, currently working with one or more of the mults and you’re itching for the next step. You’ve learnt your trade in a major FMCG company, so really know your stuff. Sales patter is fab to have, but you know that it’s the functional skills that really give you the edge over your competition.

So what can Whitworths give you? Well, we’re already a brand associated with trust and taste, which means you can focus on the sales and your career. We’re market leaders in a growing category and you’ll have the scope to design your own channel strategy. You’ll be just as excited about our brand and the opportunity in the market as we are so you’ll find it easy to show our customers why they should be investing in our brand. You’ll support our retailers, helping them to increase sales of our existing own label and branded business whilst also delivering our bold NPD plans.

The best bit? We want to develop you. That means training and career progression – our clear development structure means we’re thinking about what our commercial team will look like in 5 years, and that’s reflected in the hires we make today.

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, and we’re growing our nut range – fast. We’re 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.

If can demonstrate a successful record of selling to Tesco, Sainsbury’s, Morrisons or Asda whilst successfully managing a P&L and have an ability to turn insight into action, what are you waiting for? The apply button is right below!
