EXPIRY NOTICE: This job has now expired and will not be accepting any more applications.

Are you interested in how food travels from the farm to your fork? This is a great chance to join the commercial team of an established food supplier in an exciting graduate role.

Our client provides a great opportunity to be exposed to all parts of the meat industry from buying, the abattoir, quality, packaging, production, sales and marketing. The ultimate goal is that you will become a key member of their commercial team and, in the future, manage key sales accounts in the UK and Europe.

The two most important things a graduate can do in this industry is to ask questions and get hands-on experience. You will be given the chance to gain experience which will help you to prepare for a successful career in a dynamic industry.  It is essential that you understand the business and the industry before you begin dealing with customers.

You will have a desire to learn and you will be able to adapt your skills to new challenges and new environments.

After the rotations you will move into a more specific sales role where you will take on real responsibility. You will begin managing smaller account while supporting the senior team with larger accounts.

We require a strong level of numeracy and analytical thinking but you will also be strong at:

  • Problem solving
  • Influencing and negotiating
  • Relationship building
  • Communication

A degree in business, agriculture or food is beneficial, but not essential.

Due to the locations of our client’s sites and the regular meetings involved in the position it is important that you have a driving licence or assess to alternative transport.

Discovery Graduates are the managing consultants.  All applications will be processed through Discovery.  We regret due to the high volume of applications we receive; only those successful on application will be contacted for interviews.  In the event that you are unsuccessful for this opportunity, we may still be able to help you and we will retain your application and consider you for other opportunities.
