Loch Duart is an independent salmon farming company with a strong reputation for innovation in farming and excellence in salmon quality and taste.

Our unique farming methodology provides authentic Scottish salmon from Scottish broodstock which is acknowledged as being as close to the taste of wild salmon as is possible by farming. Loch Duart salmon is served by name on the menus of leading restaurants and hotels worldwide.

Loch Duart also trades other seafood products under the Glenbrae brand.  Products bought in under the Glenbrae brand are never confused with the genuine Loch Duart product but sold to a customer base not seeking the more expensive Loch Duart salmon.  

As Trading Manager you will put into practice the strategy agreed with the Sales Director for the purchase and sale of Glenbrae products. 

In this role you will be responsible for:

  • Buying and selling Glenbrae seafood products.
  • Visiting suppliers and customers at home and abroad and representing the company at sales events such as trade shows.
  • Setting budgets for the trading department and ensuring budgets and KPIs are met.
  • Organising marketing support for the Glenbrae brand.

The ideal candidate will have a trading background from within the seafood industry. We are also considering candidates with a strong sales/trading background within the food processing/manufacturing or agricultural sectors.  

Working within a small team of highly experienced professionals, it’s most important that you can clearly demonstrate exceptional communication and interpersonal skills.

The successful applicant will have a full induction into the company, learning salmon farming from egg to plate.

Application Process:

If you are interested in having an informal discussion to find out more please contact our retained consultant Alasdair Murray of Eden Scott directly on 0131 550 1117 or 07949 304 727
