Melitta - Team Lead Consumer & Trade Marketing

Following the successful placement of a Category Manager into the German business, Allexo were retained by Melitta to find their next Team Leader, Consumer & Trade Marketing for a key portfolio of FMCG brands.

The role had been open for 10 weeks, advertised directly and supported by a local recruitment agency with only 2 relevant profiles being interviewed in that time.

As a leadership role within the business, team leadership experience was non-negotiable and had been lacking with the previous candidates they’d met. The head office location also posed a challenge, restricting the size of the talent pool to recruit from locally. Being a family owned business, finding the right culture fit was also key.

Allexo completed a full market search within the agreed timelines and introduced a shortlist of 6 profiles, with an additional 10 highlighted as interested in the business (16 in total).

The successful candidate joins the business from a tier 1 global FMCG business based further afield in Germany, with a flexible working arrangement.
