An opportunity has arisen for a National Account Manager to join a market leading manufacturer of packaging and process machinery supplied to the food industry. This is primarily a New Business position selling to the major food retailers across the UK.
SALARY: up to £55,000
· OTE: circa £20,000, but open ended

· Pension & Health schemes
LOCATION: UK - this is a national role.
COMMUTABLE LOCATIONS: Milton Keynes, Watford, Coventry, Oxford
JOB SPECIFICATION: National Account Manager : Packaging & Process Machinery - Food Industry
This is a technical solution sell that will initially consist of a mix of 20% account management and 80% new business development. If you are successful in the first year you will be passed some house accounts which will redress this balance and shift it more towards 20% New Business and 80% Account Management. Reporting directly to the Managing Director you will be tasked with attracting new Tier 1 retails accounts (supermarkets) to the company as well as managing existing accounts and being the main point of contact for the retail side of the business. Full Technical support pre-sale & project management after order means you can concentrate on sales and account management.
REQUIREMENTS: National Account Manager : Packaging & Process Machinery - Food Industry
· You will ideally have a current and proven track record in a Sales role, specifically selling into the Major Tier 1 food retailers (Supermarkets) in the UK within the packaging machinery market
· The company will also consider National Account Managers who are currently selling to the Food Retail market / Supermarkets but in a different industry
· You could also be an ambitious Regional salesperson or Account Manager looking to develop their career into a National role with a progressive business but to be considered you would need experience of the packaging and/or process machinery markets
THE COMPANY: National Account Manager : Packaging & Process Machinery - Food Industry
A very well established and market leading manufacturer of packaging and process machinery systems (including both hardware and software with an average order value of circa £70,000 selling to both blue chip and SME food manufacturers) who are currently restructuring in order to continue their impressive growth and their position as market leader.
