Sales Director, Guildford (circa £100k)

Sales Director (UK), FMCG, circa £100K + bonus and benefits, Guildford

5 reasons why would you consider becoming the UK (and possibly European) Sales Director for this smaller business? Because:

1. Our Sales Director will have the autonomy to really make decisions

2. While we’re emerging in the UK we have an international pedigree

3. 15% of UK consumers have a so far unfulfilled need for our products

4. You’ll deputise for the CEO – in a general management capacity

5. You love being a strategist. But you’ll also love getting stuck in, personally reaching deals with distributors and supermarkets. Here you can do both.


Our client is a small team of dedicated professionals striving to establish their challenger brand. They come from blue chip backgrounds, but they are bound by entrepreneurialism, a passion for and belief in the brand and a desire to replicate its international success here in the UK….and in Europe. Every advert says ‘this is a great opportunity.’ This time, it is.

There are a lot of Sales Director jobs to choose from. But how many provide the opportunity to lead a proven FMCG food product (NZ top 50, world-wide presence) into a UK market? More to the point, how many will offer you the opportunity to exploit your flair for gaining shelf space, while preparing you for a general management role? Most Sales Director roles exist in complex matrix structures where decisions and actions struggle through layers of decision makers and complex approval structures. Not here.

If this type of opportunity appeals to you, we’d love to hear from you.

To be considered for the Sales Director/CEO designate role you will:

· Have 8 years + track record of achieving FMCG sales (at least 2 years at senior level perhaps as a NAM or BDM, some of which has been with a challenger brand. You might also be an existing Sales Director, fed up with corporate rigidity)

· Have a track record of growing a challenger brand

· Have solid and recent Grocery multiples experience

· Have an entrepreneurial streak & have worked in a small team/business

· Have excellent people and influencing skills

· Be comfortable analysing category data

· Be organised and driven by solid results

· Most of all, be a relationship builder, a door opener. You’ll roll your sleeves up and be prepared to do whatever it takes.

You’ll probably be a graduate. You may have had brand marketing experience too. You will be commercially minded and a self-starter who comes with natural passion, energy and drive. As well as being a collection of talented and driven individuals our client is very much an employer of choice. To attract the best, the starting salary of circa £100K is augmented by a potential bonus of 20%, company pension contributions and a generous holiday allowance.

Please send your CV, together with a covering letter explaining why you think you are the right person for the job to enquiries@myhrdept.co.uk.

  • Ensuring consistency of tone of voice and visual identity in all touch points
  • Helping deliver maximum value and results from the marketing budget.

You may be in a dynamic independent business as a brand manager today, or in a big FMCG business as a senior assistant brand manager, but if you have the passion and commitment to deliver creative and ultimately effective campaigns, this is the job for you! While our client is small (but growing rapidly), its people are talented and it’s a really innovative and exciting place to work. Because this is a listed business with huge growth potential it comes with none of the drawbacks of private equity funded businesses. In common with any smaller business though, you will need to have the flexibility to be a strategist today, and a hands on deliverer of results tomorrow!

To be successful in the role, you will have:

  • <!--[if !supportLists]--><!--[endif]-->At least 2 years brand management experience, ideally within a food or drink category, but otherwise with FMCG / Grocery experience.
  • A dynamic, entrepreneurial and creative flair that looks for opportunities beyond the obvious and makes them happen
  • Strong digital skills and awareness of key digital marketing developments.
  • <!--[endif]-->Clear drive and passion for delivering polished and well executed work.

It is a 12 months contract initially with a strong possibility of extension or new roles appearing after this time. As a Brand Manager for an FMCG company, you will receive a generous salary with flexible working opportunities. If you feel you have the relevant skills and you're keen to work for an FMCG food company with a small family feel, please do not hesitate to apply.

The recruitment for this role will be handled by myhrdept, who are HR outsourcing specialists in Maidenhead with 12+ years’ experience supporting small businesses. We are determined to make a difference in the recruitment business and providing our clients with a professional and personalized recruitment service.
