I am currently working with a global brand who are searching for a Customer Development Manager to join their team and manage the Sales process and relationships with one of their Key Accounts - Tesco.

  • Work closely and collaboratively within the Tesco CDT as a key contributor and team player, to shape both the overall team strategy and day to day workings, in order to optimise the total Tesco team performance.

To excel in this role you will need:

  • To demonstrate a clear understanding of the Tesco strategy, their shopper and how the business can optimise their brands and strategic intents within this environment.
  • To build strong external networks, in order to enhance customer engagement, gain a broader understanding of Tesco and be the first to identify new business opportunities and challenges
  • To build strong internal networks in order to raise the profile, business focus and support for Tesco
  • To work closely and collaboratively with the Tesco CAP to accurately forecast volume/sales/investment through effective 5P planning and clear identification of risks and opportunities on a monthly cycle.
