This is a permanent full-time position that will become a key role in our Route Trade sales team, working with market leading brands such as Streets Ice Cream and Red Bull. To be successful, you must be able to work proactively and collaboratively in a fast-paced and constantly evolving market. Whilst you will need to be a strong team player, it will be your self-motived ‘can-do’ attitude and great customer service that will drive your career forward.

A successful candidate must be able to maintain and build strong relationships with suppliers and customers. We want the best, someone who achieves strong results within an FMCG environment. You'll need to be an effective communicator and have experience in creating workable strategies to maximize both sales and margins. We are looking for a highly motivated individual to complement our existing sales team.

This is a hands-on role & requires a physically fit, well-organised person & not afraid of hard work. If you have a great sales background and think you are ready for the next step this could be for you.

  • Sales growth and profitability of the VSR regions
  • Execution of all promotions, POS and merchandising
  • Accuracy of planograms, fill weights
  • Maximising distribution
  • Reaching your monthly sales target

The right candidates will have:

  • Ability to work in a team and independently
  • Excellent Administration Skills
