Looking to develop your FMCG Category & Insight career and work with one of the largest FMCG food groups in the UK?

You'll be seen as an expert on category, shopper & consumer data, developing category strategies and executing these with retail partners.


The role will offer a real breadth of responsibility that would be hard to find in a regular blue chip FMCG business at this level - this won't be aligned to just one category within one customer/channel, but will instead be working across all, supporting on range reviews, managing shopper marketing projects, ad hoc research projects and the agency relationships.


Key responsibilities

  • Build strong and lasting relationshipswith internal and external stake holders eg customer and supplier contacts
  • The ability to segment analysis by customer, brand, category, channel to understand and drive category performance
  • Working with continuous (egKantar, Nielsen, IRI, Nectar loyalty) or adhoc market and consumer data and to put the "Customer First" to identify opportunities for the business and retailers


The ideal candidate will be ambitious, driven looking to take their category management career to the next level. It's essential you have some category management experience working for an FMCG manufacturer and the ability to manage retailer relationships.
