Looking to develop your career in FMCG category management and work for a global business with strong heritage brands found across the world?

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.

Key Responsibilities

  • 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
  • Own and develop Shopper Marketing activities inc. merchandising solutions

The ideal candidate will either be:
