You might not have heard of our client, but you’ll certainly know their products. Because this morning millions of people splashed some milk into their cuppas and over their cereal. Millions more enjoyed a round of hot buttered toast. And chances are you were one of them.
So chances are you’ve already experienced our client today.
Our client is the leading supplier of fresh milk and cream to the top seven retailers. They’re a fast-paced business, processing over two billion litres of milk every year and making 2,200 deliveries every day. They’re focused on the continuous growth of their business and their product portfolio – in 2006 they launched over 100 new products under retailers’ own labels. If you’ve the energy, drive and ambition to impress, you could be a real success in our business-critical commercial function.
Joining the company with at least a 2:1 (ideally) in a business discipline, around 12 months’ commercial experience and a passion for sales, you’ll enjoy six month placements in our client’s sales, marketing, planning and category departments to gain broad experience of the different functions that make up an award winning commercial operation. At the end of a successful two year period, you should be ready to step into a low/middle sales-focused management role.
As well as amazing career progress opportunities, you’ll enjoy working in our client’s bright, modern head office in Stourton, just outside Leeds city centre, with state-of-the-art technology, on-site gym, restaurant and free parking – you will need a current driving licence for this role. You’ll find their culture to be incredibly friendly and supportive.
