As category leaders within their respective sub-category, they are a small business that punch above their weight in the market in which they operate. They are also part of a bigger, global group which offers the security not usually found in smaller businesses. The Category Manager role is a new position and will see you developing a category strategy and rolling this out with the key retailers (predominantly grocery, convenience and discounters).
We're looking for someone with previous category management experience, ideally classically trained so you'll have experience of using a mix of Nielsen, Kantar, IRI, dunnhumby, etc. This is a customer facing role where you'll be required to meet a customers from a range of channels so we're looking for someone with excellent interpersonal skills who can make an impact quickly. You will be the main person in the category team and this is effectively a stand alone role so you'll be a self-starter who can work effectively with sales & marketing. This role would suit someone from a bigger business looking for a more autonomous role where they can make a bigger impact.
