Job Description

  • Do you want to work for a leading brand who has phenomenal plans for growth?
  • Is your experience with category management, dealing with the major multiples?
  • Are you immediately available (or available in the next few weeks!) for a 12 month FTC?

If so, we’d love to hear from you as our client who is a leading food manufacturer and based in Norfolk, is looking to recruit a Category Manager for a 12 month fixed term contract.

Working as part of a team, you will play an integral part in driving business by analysing shopper marketing strategies and category management, in one of the most exciting products in the supermarkets! You will work with a huge amount of data such as Nielsen to become the industry expert in data, insight and working with the Commercial Managers, driving footfall, frequency of purchase, promotions and ultimately sales & profit. You will lead customer range reviews, do promotional analysis, support NPD and attend retailer meetings when required.

In return, you will be working for one the fastest growing businesses in its category, for a brand that is a household name with a product that we believe, everybody loves! To apply for this role, you need to have experience in Category Management from an FMCG background, either branded or own label food or drink. You will know how to analyse data in your sleep (not literally!) and pulling together presentations for retailers under tight time scales will be 2nd nature to you.

We hope our enthusiasm for this client come across and whilst this is a Fixed Term Contract, in a company with growth plans in place, who knows where this could lead to. Exciting times!  

Salary: £competitive depending on experience.
