Senior Category Manager, Bracknell-

Are you an experienced Category Manager with an eye for the latest consumer trends? Do you have at least 5 years' experience working in house for a consumer brand? Are you a commercially aware individual with the ambition to drive and grow your category within a successful business? If you answered yes to all of the above, then we have an exciting opportunity for you…

Our well-established and industry leading client is looking for a proactive and driven Senior Category Manager to join their busy and lively team just outside of Bracknell. Candidates applying for this role must have previous experience working within a large retail organisation or will have worked in-house in a similar position for a consumer or FMCG brand. You'll need a strong awareness of market trends and the ability to predict "the next big thing" to ensure this business stays one step ahead of its competitors and is always providing their customers with the latest innovation. Above all, we're looking for someone who has strong commercial nous and is driven and motivated to deliver the best results for the business and exceed objectives.

As Senior Category Manager, you'll be responsible for driving growth and sales within your category. You'll need to keep your finger on the pulse to source the latest products for the business and anticipate what the customer wants before they know themselves! Not only will you be sourcing new products from suppliers, but you'll also be working with them to develop new products not currently offered on the market to keep this brand ahead of the curve and the competition. As such, you'll need prior experience developing NPD and evaluating range performance within a retail or FMCG environment, with a strong track record of introducing commercially successful products to a brand. We're looking for someone with a strong head for figures, as you'll oversee all P&L for your category and will negotiate the most competitive prices and deals with suppliers to keep costs down and ensure maximum profitability for the business. Working with a number of internal departments and colleagues, you'll assist in the marketing strategy of your new products and how these will be propositioned to retail partners and the end consumer.

This is a fantastic opportunity to join a hugely successful, international business with ambitious plans for growth over the coming years. As an organisation, they truly value their employees and go the extra mile to make all employees feel a part of the business and ensure you are progressing and developing in your role.

Due to the location of this office, this role is commutable from Bracknell, Slough, Reading, Wokingham, Farnborough, Woking, Guildford, Basingstoke, Maidenhead, Windsor, Fleet, Weybridge and High Wycombe.
