KEY ACCOUNT MANAGER - FMCG RETAIL CHANNEL
"A Key Account Manager position in an established, Global premium homewares business"
£30-40000 (Dependent on Experience/Negotiable) + 20% Bonus + Car Allowance & Benefits
Hybrid National Field/Home Based Role - HO in Thames Valley/Oxfordshire
Having carved a successful career in sales, you'll have learned that there's nothing more depressing than trying to sell a low-quality, cheap, mass-produced product. You end up clutching at straws trying to sell obvious features like, "Our tables have four legs and a wipe-clean surface". Not easy, is it?
So, imagine selling a premium product range where every aspect of the user's experience is carefully considered and built into the design. Speciality homeware that immediately sells itself on its striking visual appeal and functionality.
Sound like a better prospect?
Having already established their brand in high-end retailers like John Lewis, our client is now focusing on building relationships with other quality retail outlets. And that's where you'll come in with your existing knowledge of selling into companies like QVC, Robert Dyas, Argos, Dunelm, Very, Next, or Homebase, to name but a few.
However, as well as creating business with new customers, there are many opportunities to increase sales with existing customers who aren't aware of our client's complete product range.
As for you, our client is relaxed about your qualifications. But excellent written and verbal communications skills will be essential to your success in this role. In addition, you must have previous experience managing key accounts with major retailers. Location isn't too important as this is primarily a field-based role, but you will need to be able to attend the company HQ in Oxfordshire.
To indicate your interest in this role, please submit your details, quoting reference LX 1045846 or call us on 44 (0)1905 381 320.
