Our client is a leading UK food manufacturer operating in a category that is growing and evolving and where there is an abundance of opportunity. Over the last 3 years the business has become more and more Category Management led and the business requires a passionate individual who has the ability to build and manage relationships with major grocery retailers.
You'll be seen as an expert on category, shopper & consumer data, developing category strategies and excecuting these with chosen 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.
- Build strong and lasting relationships with 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 (eg Kantar, 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.
As well as a highly competitive basic salary this role provides a range of fantastic benefits, including bonus, contributory pension scheme, private health care and much more
