International Sales Director

Location: UK, South Based
Salary package around £140,000 + equity

Already a runaway success story of a start-up that has achieved way beyond the original expectations of the Founders, our client has accelerated its ambition to deliver an aggressive plan that doubles revenue in the next three years.  Easily recognised as a true Challenger food brand, this innovative £30 million business, with serious PE backing, has now trained its sights on appointing an impressive Export Sales individual who will unlock the untapped Distribution potential knowingly available within existing and new customers around Europe and possibly beyond.

This opportunity requires real depth of international sales experience, an accomplished FMCG sales Professional, with experience of Europe-wide grocery customers coupled with Distributor Management.  You’ll have the growth mindset and ability to deliver incremental revenue in a role that offers a very high degree of autonomy.  Your attitude as a sales entrepreneur is expected; someone who thrives on the idea of pioneering and building commercial success and can show their value instantly.

You will have a strong and credible voice at the customer table. Under your clear leadership, you will raise the team standards and exploit a creative international strategy, perfectly designed using your wide knowledge and blue-chip training backed by your track record having done this before.

Above all, you’ll have a passion for growth and a bias for action that makes a lasting impact.

If you dream of swapping your ‘every day seems the same’ role currently for one with a fast-paced and vibrant company, now is the time to do something about it.  The stakes are high, the rewards even higher!
