Sales Controller

Location: London
To £75,000 + exec benefits

Formed only 10 years ago this privately owned family run branded chilled food business enjoys the enviable reputation as a Challenger brand. The category is competitive yet the belief is strong; current revenues represent only half of what can be achieved which makes the future really exciting. With the right ‘sales firepower’ at the customer table, there is so much more distribution to gain and exploit within Top 4 Grocery retail. Now is the time for a surge in true sales capability and output.

A vitally important autonomous sales role and very much part of a close-knit commercial team, the core purpose is to step-change growth performance of an entrepreneurial SME with a relentless ambition to double turnover and trebled profits in the next five years.

The Board and the family Founders have a unique product innovation pipeline to launch across the UK customer estate. Now is the time to appoint a skilled Sales Account Controller with commercial know-how and strength of character to flourish in fast-paced company culture.

To qualify as a credible candidate your knowledge stems from a career in FMCG sales, small or large company backgrounds, with Top 4 as your customer channel experience. You are a pioneer of sales, you love the idea of being set free to develop your customers as you know you can. Your exposure will be all ranging; you relish the prospect of being involved at every stage of the journey to winning customers and listings. Taking ownership of the joint business plan will ensure your brand and products generate even more penetration in premium chilled meals and the grocery market as a whole.

This is a highly ambitious family company and you will be constantly in the spotlight, you will thrive in such exposure. You’ll have a commanding presence, a streak of creativity and an unstoppable appetite for selling. The role demands real conviction, energy and someone who wants to make a difference and build an everlasting legacy. 

Looking for real ownership and empowerment? This is the role you’ve been waiting for as your step up from national account management.
