About this position: 

 

Our client is a rapidly growing UK-based Distributor to Discount/Variety Retailers with a broad category portfolio across branded Food and Non-food FMCG. Due promotion, they wish to appoint a Sales Director.          

 

The Role: 
  • Reporting directly to the Group Commercial Director you will be responsible for nurturing current accounts and growing revenues throughout the UK Discounter Retail market.
