Account Manager HORECA Channel - Houseware and Accessories

Up to £35k DOE + Bonus + Company Car

London

An exciting opportunity has now arisen to join one of Europe’s leading brands in houseware and accessories for both the home and in hospitality. Our client is looking for an account manager to join their HORECA team to be responsible for UK & Ireland dealing with a wide variety of customers from large hotel groups, restaurants and cafés, to Cruise Liners and specialist gifting projects.

The business has been established for over 50 years and has an excellent reputation for being leaders in design and innovation. Their track record in creating premium products with an extensive reach into many of the world’s leading retailers, hotels and restaurants comes down to their fantastic design team. The high level of creativity, design and innovation helps the business launch over 200 new products each year.

The role of Account Manager is to have a focus on developing the Hotel, Restaurant and Café channel throughout the UK & Ireland. Our client is looking for someone to become a true ambassador of the company with a genuine passion for the product and the brand. Working closely with senior management to define and embrace the culture and key business values, you will be tasked to maximise existing customers whilst developing new accounts across the territory.

To be considered for this opportunity you will have an excellent track record in achieving and exceeding sales targets. Experience in the HORECA Channel would be highly beneficial but not absolutely necessary. Other industry backgrounds to be considered are Fashion, Cosmetics and Houseware. Exposure and a clear understanding to premium brand marketing is essential as well as demonstrable project management success.

A genuine passion for the product and industry is vital as you will be immersing yourself in the industry, keeping well informed on new premium hotel, bar and restaurant openings.

If you believe you have the ability and experience necessary to become successful with this industry leading business please send your CV today.
