North West

Full-time, Permanent

£41,106 – £45,045 a year

Commercial Manager – Amazon

£41,106 to £45,045 Basic plus bonus and company car

Our client already enjoys an enviable position across Europe and the USA with some business here in the UK via a number of specialist distributors. The company however has identified a substantial opportunity here in the UK, and has taken the strategic decision for a direct UK presence, including a new office and logistics facility in Warrington ( ready for occupation in January 2020 ) and a dedicated local sales and marketing function. The online channel represents by far the largest of the UK opportunities so we are looking for somebody with either a good level of Amazon experience or of a similarly important Online account.

Your brief will be to build business with Amazon and other Online e-tailers, whilst continuing to support the distributors who will in turn supply to the independent and convenience channels. You may also be required to manage a couple of the top four major grocery retailers, so some exposure to the Grocery channel would be something of a bonus and not an essential.

We have been briefed to identify and recruit an accomplished individual to grasp this opportunity, and to maximise the ( pretty substantial ) potential that is to be found here in the UK.

For this particular role, it is essential you have good solid exposure of Amazon and/or other major Online e-tailers. An exposure to the bricks and mortar / Grocery channel would be something of a bonus.

In return for your dedication and efforts our client is prepared to pay a basic salary of between £41,106 and £45,045 plus bonus and company car.
