Innovative and Fresh. This describes our client to the letter….as well as highly successful.
With one of the fastest growth and profit rates in the fresh sectors and with extensive external industry awards to prove this, their planning for 2018 and beyond is well underway.
Being Kent based and full of industry knowledge and expertise, they have certainly learnt from the negativity and demise of others in the fresh sectors that have traditionally chased vacuous turnover figures and not long term clients in niche sectors that attract security and decent margin returns. As such our client is highly selective as to who they work with be that international growers or their end clients. Retailers with wafer thin margins can stand aside as they are of not interest to this business. This client knows who they want to be associated with and who they will add value to ongoing. With a double digit growth rate over the last 3 years they are now planning the next stage of their aggressive growth and that is why they need to find you…..
As with any business going through a rapid growth curve, they are planning to truly maximize the potential new business coming to them. Your role as Commercial Manager will be to look to “partner” the Directors and take more of their workload to increase the efficiency overall and keep the profitably growth rate on track for the business. As such, you need to flexible and innovative in your thinking and look to grasp opportunities, as well as deploy your commercial skill set from the fresh/FMCG sectors to the benefit of yourself and the business. You could be dealing with growers, shippers, end customers and anything and everything in between in a structured but fast paced environment on a daily basis. So the role is not for the light hearted and one for an individual looking to create their success in a highly enterprising and entrepreneurial team which will potentially double in business size over the next 4-5 years.
They are open as to who chooses to join them be that junior, mid-management or senior level individuals. The most important element is the people fit. They just want to find you…
