This is a new role within a highly regarded, global consumer goods business. The company has one of the strongest employer brands in FMCG and is a destination employer for most people. This role is a new position and is not a typical category role…

The role has two aspects, the first is the customer facing category management work. This will see you delivering category plans to a range of 5-6 key customers within a much bigger channel. A big part of the role will be presenting to senior stakeholders in these customers such as CEO's and Commercial Directors. You need to be comfortable presenting to large audiences too as you will be presenting at supplier conferences and insight days on the longer-term trends within the channel.

Being the most senior person in the category team, the second part of the role is being the representative for the channel with senior stakeholders internally. You'll act as a consultant to the Commercial Director for channel related queries and will present key plans and strategies to the wider team.

If you're interested in applying, we're ideally looking for the following:

  • Experience of working in insights or category management
  • Customer facing experience with the ability to sell a strategy to a customer
  • Comfortable speaking in front of large audiences at insight days and supplier conferences
  • Comfortable speaking with C-level stakeholders both internally and externally
  • The ability to develop category plans and strategies without lots of complex data
  • An interest in the food and beverage industry

If you're a category manager bored of the monotony of traditional channels and are looking for something more entrepreneurial where you can have a real influence, then don't hesitate to apply below!
