In the highly competitive world of retail and fast moving consumer goods, packaging can define the brand value to the consumer on the high street and within retail stores. Some brands within cosmetics are recognised all over the world for the style and fair of design, shape and layout. Working with brands to develop the styling, shaping and materials utilised for making these products makes a significant and direct impact to the revenue the product produces and the packaging is mass produced, so it must be precise.
With the technological advances in recent years, there is more than one way to produce plastic packaging through injection moulding. However, our client works in a niche market place (without any direct competitor) and wishes to remain a global leading force by managing their client's expectations across several continents, development and maximising the spending potential.
The Global Accounts Manager is someone that has relevant experience in sales management, business development and account management who can bring a wealth of experience, knowledge and networks (if possible) for marketplaces the client still wants to develop, despite their market leading status.
Ideally a background in packaging, FMCG and plastic would be beneficial. Experience working as an international business development/account manager who is personable, approachable and who has experience managing clients who spend small amounts (£25) to large orders (£500k-£1M) would be ideal.
The job will involve travel UK and international travel, so flexibility perform and work around a client during the week is a critical factor to take into account.
The salary is negotiable depending on experience, but very competitive and we welcome individuals with relevant experience to come forward and submit your CV for review. If successful, an initial interview process will be arranged to discuss your experiences and relevance to the role.
