Interim Brand Manager (9-12mths)




We seek a hands on, spirited and collaborative Brand Manager for a maternity cover contract.  Reporting to the Marketing Director, the Brand Manager will manage all advertising and promotional activity for a fresh and natural grocery salad brand.  With a very clear point of difference vs the competition, it will be the job of the Brand Manager to leverage this as much as possible and to drive maximum awareness via digital, outdoor and specific retailer activity.  Upon joining the team, the Brand Manager will have immediate responsibility for activating the plans already in place for 2014 but they’ll also be expected to develop the strategic plans for 2015 including a full range relaunch.  The branded business for our client presents continued growth opportunities and there are certainly opportunities to launch new brands, therefore, this interim position could well become permanent if the right person is found.

Our Ideal Candidate

You will be someone willing to roll your sleeves up, someone with excellent project management skills and someone who has an expectation to get involved.  You will have a robust marketing background in consumer products and be excellent in your communication and ability to influence.

Client Profile

Our client is a vertically integrated grower-to-marketing organisation.  They manage the entire process from seed to shelf; via growth through to production and marketing.  A family business with strong values for its people, its customers and suppliers, as well as having enormous respect for the environment and nature.
