Client Details

As one of the UKs largest and fastest growing food manufactures, my client have become a dominant force across a number of categories, supplying all the major retailers and a range of premium outlets. Their success has been achieved through a constant focus geared towards innovation and quality, and as a result they achieved an unrivalled reputation and sole supplier status across multiple customers. With a turnover in excess of £3bn globally, and year on growth of around 13%, they are in a strong position to invest back into the business and enter their next phase of growth.


As a key member of the category team over the next 9 months, it will be your responsibility to launch 5 new SKU's into a category the business currently has no presence in. This has been a major project over the last 12 months, so this high profile role will be critical to the future success of the business. Alongside this exciting launch, you will work closely with key data sources such as Kantar and Nielsen, to build product pipeline for the next 6 months by analysing your research and forecasting future consumer trends.


To be considered for this exciting opportunity, it is essential you have a proven track record of delivering successful launches within the retail sector, and have experience of working with Kantar and Nielsen. You must be willing to travel across the UK to support the sales team on customer meetings, and visit different sites predominantly within the North of England.
