Zachary Daniels Recruitment are working exclusively with the UK subsidiary of a European manufacturer of consumer products.
They are looking to hire a Marketing Manager as a key member of the team to help drive business growth from just over £4m to £10m pa in the UK.
Reporting to the UK Managing Director and working closely with the Director for National Accounts you will take accountability for developing the brand name to UK consumers giving more leverage and influence with the major retail customers. On a limited budget you will work with the retailers to gain as much product exposure as possible across a broad range. This will require creative thinking and an influence-based approach.
Further channels will be explored by sales in 2017 and beyond so there will be an opportunity to be creative and to work with additional customers that may include corporate companies and health clubs.
The company has achieved great things in the past few years, growing relatively quickly and bringing on board some prestigious accounts. There is a plan for further growth and this role is a key part of the plan. This role may suit someone who has developed his or her marketing communication skills within a corporate organisation and is now looking to have a more autonomous role. Or maybe you have a track record of developing lesser-known brands within the FMCG field. The position will be home-based but there will always be someone on the end of the phone and there will be weekly face-to-face catch-ups either at HQ or meeting the MD or Director of National Accounts on the road somewhere.
Your communication and presentation skills will need to be very strong, you should be confident in front of customers. Due to the size of the company we are looking for someone who can make a reasonably quick contribution so unfortunately we won't be accepting applications from those whose experience sits outside of FMCG marketing.
There is a clear strategy for where the business wants to be and so whilst there is no UK marketing structure with an established career path there will be an opportunity to grow your own role as the business grows.
