Category Manager | Chilled Food/Drink | East Midlands
We are working for a very highly respected client who is looking to add to their already excellent team. They are looking to add to their business with a new category manager to take on one of their key and growing divisions within high end retailers. They are looking for someone with a good level of experience who can take control of the category and really get into growing it further.
Working with some of their key accounts you will maintain the interests of the business at heart while developing your own desk and category, making great use of the data available to you. You would be working with the likes of Kantar and other software to ensure the category insight is as useful as it can be and helping continue the growth of the business.
The ideal candidate will come from a chilled, fmcg or fresh produce background which will enable you to work at the high paced nature of the business. Experience with retailers (Waitrose and M&S would be advantageous) will help you understand the current plan for the business. You will have a good level of experience in the commercial sector within similar businesses that will stand you in great stead to take on the challenge. Great communication skills will always help and a can do attitude will lend itself to the friendly and out going nature of the business. Experience with Kantar is also necessary to be successful in achieving this role.
