We have a really exciting opportunity for a Business Manager to help lead our relationship with one of the most iconic names when it comes to quality food – Marks & Spencer. This role will be responsible for account management of our Deli Fillers business and you’ll identify key opportunities within M&S and Greencore Northampton.

Main responsibilities

As the Business Manager you will work closely with Marks and Spencer and you will be responsible for our Deli Fillers business. This is an extremely vibrant and fast growing sector of our relationship with M&S and the successful Business Manager will be tasked with growing Greencore’s influence by maximising all opportunities for M&S. This will include a strong focus on the day to day performance to achieve annual sales and margin targets.

It really is a fantastic opportunity for someone with experience working directly with a retail customer. You’ll be based at our busy and expanding Northampton site and as you’ll be working with Marks & Spencer you’ll spend your time out in stores and at their head office.

With your commercial knowledge you’ll also be able to identify areas and opportunities for cost reduction. You’ll also ensure that all promotional and NPD activity meets the performance criteria set. You’ll also have the opportunity to contribute to the future strategic direction of the category through leading or supporting a number of ongoing and new projects.

It’ll come naturally to you that you’ll be responsible for staying ahead of the game in the industry. And you’ll keep abreast of market performance, wider food trends, and the activity of competitors, therefore helping to fuel intelligence and expertise within the team.

Ideal candidate

We’re looking for someone who is working at or is ready to step up to a role in Business Management. Ideally you’ll have a wealth of experience within the chilled food sector.

A key thing that we will be looking for is that you’ve really got a drive and passion for account management and you’ll really understand how to work closely with a client. Of course you’ll need to be commercially savvy and you’ll be able to demonstrate how you’ve taken insight and converted it into commercial solutions. You’ll spend a lot of time communicating with a wide range of people at a variety of levels so you’ll need to be comfortable presenting to small and large groups.

We really love food so naturally, you’ll really love food too and you’ll have a real passion for the industry!
