Description

Experience Level: Entry Level
I work as a food broker - the sales and marketing partner to several overseas food and drink suppliers.

I am looking for an experienced food sales professional with extensive contacts within the retail, wholesale and food service sectors in the UK to help support my business ongoing.

Initially I can only afford to pay on a commission only basis however as the business grows there may be an opportunity for a more formal retainer/contract.

Most of the suppliers I represent supply premium, organic, artisan products so a good knowledge and passion for good food is essential.

I am looking for someone who is highly motivated, enthusiastic and well presented with excellent communication and negotiation skills. Must be highly numerate with integrity and gravitas.

Wideboys need not apply.

Preferably someone who has worked for a Bluechip with a thorough understanding of the modern retail model including category captaincy.

This is a new business venture and represents an exciting opportunity for the right person.

Ideally someone within an hours drive of London as that is where most of my prospects are located. 50% of expenses will be reimbursed but clearly loathed to fund expenses for someone living in John O\'Groats!

Must be contactable 9-5 Monday to Friday with access to a landline telephone and broadband internet connection.

No ceiling to potential commission.
