Are you looking to take a step into a Controller position this year? Do you have your sights firmly set on career development and an environment which allows you to operate to autonomy, creating your own channel strategy?
London based, this FMCG global organisation has experienced significant growth supported by a superb leadership team and have developed a global following, shouting loud about what they do. They are a passionate, engaging and entrepreneurial brand and whilst a significant global player, still retain a close knit team and small business mentality.
With new plans for 2018, they are now in the market for a National Account Controller to develop everything non Grocery Retail! This incorporates Wholesale, Cash & Carry, Food Service, Travel Retail, Convenience and High Street. The National Account Controller for the OOH / Impulse channel will lead a small team and ultimately be responsible for creating and implementing channel and customer strategy to segment, unlocking new opportunities to deliver incremental gross revenue and gross margin, with a focus on sustainable, profitable growth.
What type of person are they looking for?
Culture and values are absolutely the most important factor for this FMCG brand. I could go on to talk endlessly about the culture they operate, but in brief; flexible, values led, doing things in the right way and having fun whilst they’re doing it! Does this sound like a culture you would work well within, develop your career and absolutely lead from the front in driving growth in the Impulse/ OOH channel?
Going back to my original question…
- Strategic thinkers
- Insight led commercial thought process
- FMCG Impulse/ OOH experience (wholesale, food service, travel retail etc.)
- Perhaps feeling stifled in a matrix, blue chip organisation?
- Someone who can roll up their sleeves and get stuck in!
Sound like an exciting challenge for 2018? As ever, they’re looking to move quickly with this appointment to hit the ground running and start as they mean to go on – if this sounds like you please don’t hesitate in applying or give us a call directly for a confidential conversation.
