Exciting on trend business knocks out some cracking ideas which allow people to enjoy products which are made from real ingredients and taste brilliant. 

Do you want the opportunity to work with a fantastic group of similarly minded individuals as they embark on their next round of expansion and growth?

Location: North East office with time for Home working

Over the last two decades the team within this household name have taken on iconic status with a number of their products, created a category leadership approach and fostered innovation that leads the field.

The individual will be responsible for the continued growth of their UK market through evaluating NPD opportunities, working hand in hand with buyers offering recommendations to support category and retailer growth. 

You must be bright, sharp, self-organised and the passion and aptitude to operate in this fast paced but exciting action driven environment to create exciting insights and category strategies to win.

During your first years you will be expected to be involved in development of data insights that will lead to range reviews, merchandising, promotional mechanics employed by the commercial teams and innovation within the NPD and brand function.

To be successful here you will be comfortable manipulating data, using insights to create direction of thought and ideally some FMCG market data such as retail link and Neilson or Kantar.  These analytical skills will be complimented with strong communication competencies which are balanced with outside the box thinking.  Such thinking will enable you to deliver the category plan to retailers and internal stake holders.

This role will be central to understanding the competitive landscape of the business and provide a platform for further strategic decision making.  Therefore, you will be at the heart of business with a view of everything that is taking place.

This is an environment for those earning freedom from the corporate glue of large multinationals as there will be few “policies and procedures” but plenty of freedom.  So you must be self-organised and motivated to deliver in a fast paced and uncompromising environment

With 2 - 8 years’ experience in a commercial category function this will provide an opportunity to develop your career and lead to future promotion and development.

If you are interested, please forward an updated cv and full salary details to Paul Nyman Consultancy who are managing the project exclusively and will be conducting initial on line interviews for the client throughout the next 4 weeks.
