Further information

This is an excellent opportunity for an ambitious and career motivated individual to join one of Europe's leading food trading companies.

Working for a well-established, International food trading company based in the Northern Home Counties, you will form an integral part of the import team working in a Sales and Account Management role alongside senior members of the team.  Initially you will be focusing on maintaining and developing existing customer relationships but as you progress you will become more involved in sourcing and working directly with global suppliers.

This is an excellent opportunity for somebody with a sales background and the relevant drive and enthusiasm to develop into a multi-skilled individual. There are excellent career prospects and earnings, as well as extensive training, to help you progress.



The Individual

  • 3-5 years solid experience of sales and account management from within the Food industry, either working for a Producer, Supplier or Manufacturer. Ideally you will have a trading background;
  • Possess the drive and ambition to develop all aspects of the business within your remit;
  • Strong analytical skills;
  • You will be a self-starter, ambitious and hungry, and able to enjoy your working environment;
