Interim Category Executive - Food Service
Our client is an established, high growth FMCG business that brings some of the best artisan products in the UK to consumers. They take real pride in what they do and are looking for a curious mind to join them in their quest to bring the best products to market. The role on offer is an Interim Category Executive, which will run for a fixed term of 9-12 months.
Working on a defined category within the food service channel, you will utilise market data to understand the category dynamics, create high performing product ranges and underpin commercial decision making. You will become an expert in category ranging, pricing and promotions by working with customers and national accounts teams to translate insights into strategies that drive performance.
The ideal candidate will be data literate with the ability to derive actionable recommendations from a variety of data sources. You will have sound commercial acumen and the ability to form strong relationships both internally and with customers will be an asset. Experience gained in a food service setting is desirable but not essential. The most important attributes are a great sense of humour, a curious mind and the ability to turn complex data into something meaningful and interesting!
