Our client is one of the UK’s leading Blue Chip FMCG branded food manufacturers with an outstanding reputation in the industry. We are working closely together with a view to adding a Category Executive to the already strong team in order to focus on a major multiple retailer.

Reporting to the Customer Category Manager, you will support the management of category projects for the customer buying team, conduct weekly pricing analysis & waste analysis, evaluate range reviews, and input to customer annual planning among others. You will be expected to make a direct impact on the brand and will be measured by buyer feedback, internal feedback and merchandiser feedback.

You will ideally already have some category experience, but those with brand experience looking for a more analytical role will also be considered. You will however have to have branded experience ideally with food, and those with experience with Asda will be favoured. You must show good operational understanding of customer systems, procedures and standards and their impact on the company.

Whilst we would like to respond to all our on-line applicants, regrettably we are unable to do so due to the high volumes we receive. If you've not heard from us within two weeks, unfortunately on this occasion your application has been unsuccessful.
