Who are these people?

These guys have a trading history dating back to over 50 years, they are the largest independent wholesale catering company in the SouthWest and widely trusted by their long standing clients.

Covid raised a million challenges overall for this industry, but the provision of their speedy ecommerce service helped them a lot, and provided some stable additional revenue throughout the pandemic. They are now back to pre-pandemic levels and are in a really good position to push future ambitious growth.

  • Grow existing client accounts

  • Excellent time management skills with an ability to manage your own diary

What’s in it for me?

This is a successful company with an excellent, longstanding reputation for quality and top-notch service. They respect and look after their staff incredibly well meaning that they have an exceptionally low staff turnover with some of their staff having been employed by them for over 20 years.

There’s a mature working ethos with flexibility and freedom to get on with the job (that's refreshing sometimes trust me !) A benefits package as long as your arm - ranging from a generous workplace pension scheme, life assurance, income protection, staff discounts, incremental holiday package. Not to mention all of the bits that come with the job, company car with fuel card, mobile phone, iPad… and lots, lots more…
