Excellent opportunity with a market leading, globally recognised foodservice manufacturer

We are a global manufacturer of grocer products with our range including some of the most widely recognised brands within the UK marketplace.
Our foodservice division specialises in meeting the needs of our foodservice clients across both profit and cost sectors including hotels, restaurants, contract caterers, schools and education.
Our product range consists mainly of leading ambient brands, many of which are essential lines in the eyes of most head chefs and contract catering managers.
We pride ourselves on the diversity of our range in addition to our dedication to providing excellent service to our clients.
Whether our client is a national hotel chain or an independent coffee shop, we aim to work consultatively to recommend and promote the strongest brands suitable for their target market.
Due to dynamic plans for 2011, we are seeking to develop our dedicated foodservice team through the addition of several sales professionals.

As we work extremely closely with our wholesale partners across the UK you will be responsible for taking orders and backselling these through our wholesale distribution channels.
This is an extremely hands on position and will require regular demonstrations of our product with the end users to provide them of a strong understanding of how these brands will benefit their business.
The main focus of the roles will be to retain and develop existing business although you will also be targeted at adding new clients to the area.
You will be responsible for your own journey plan, making on average 6-8 calls a day
