Account/Key Account Manager - Bulk Ingredients at Green Origins

Where: Sheffield, United Kingdom

Deadline: July 9, 2020

Type: Graduate

View more

About the company

Green Origins is a leading European superfoods business based on the outskirts of Sheffield. Established in 2008, we import a range of 80+ superfoods direct from growers around the world and sell them under our own brands, in bulk and in private label. We are the BRAND behind many UK and European superfood brands.

About the role

Working closely with the Sales Manager and Supply Chain team, your main objective will be to maximise the amount of business generated by customers in your account portfolio. You will do this by developing a detailed understanding of the customers needs and how our products can satisfy those needs. This understanding combined with excellent customer service and empathy will be the basis of creating long term relationships which move towards close partnerships. The role is a combination of reactive order management (with up-selling and cross-selling where appropriate) and proactive business development where you look to introduce products from our range to the customer where they are either not selling that product currently or are buying elsewhere and are not actively looking for new suppliers. Your account base will be a mixture of end-user manufacturers, SME businesses and resellers. You will be expected to proactively contact these accounts regularly by phone balancing business development within your customer base with day to day order management. Time management and effective communication skills are essential to maximising customer service and mutual value creation. The major KPIs will be sales and margin, with an uncapped bonus structure in place based on both individual and team performance.

Requirements

This role would suit a candidate who is ambitious, energetic and wants to get ahead by demonstrating the right ability and attitude. Green Origins is growing rapidly, so the opportunities for promotion are limited only by your success in the role.

About the company

Main business: : Retail, sales and purchasing

On the face of it, Aldi is a quirky, down-to-earth supermarket, providing its customers with great quality at discount prices. Take a look at the bigger picture and it’s quite breathtaking. We’re one of the most impressive retailers in the global business market today; a supermarket that’s getting it right.


We’re winning all kinds of awards and new stores are springing up all over the UK and Ireland (currently one every week). Combine this with over 9,000 stores worldwide – and continuing expansion throughout Europe, North America and Australia – and you’ll see why it’s an incredibly exciting time to join us.
We’re dynamic, energetic and we need people who share our passion for getting it right. Join us and you’ll be the kind of person who enjoys taking on wide-ranging retail challenges.

About the role

All graduates enter the business on their Area Manager Training Programme. It’s gained a reputation for being tough, and rightly so. Graduates have an enormous amount of responsibility very early on and after 12 months, they’ll take control of a multi-million pound area of three to four stores. Graduates receive incredible support throughout their training, with a dedicated mentor and regular one-to-one sessions with talented colleagues.

It’s the perfect introduction to Aldi and a superb foundation for future success. It gives graduates a wider lens to make critical business decisions later on in their journey. Two to three years into the programme, secondments are available with many graduates having the chance to spend time in other parts of the UK, the US or even Australia. After five or so years as an area manager, high-performing graduates can then move into a director role within (for example) buying, finance or operations.

There’s full support and exceptional training to furnish you with all kinds of knowledge – from employment law and recruitment, to operations and health and safety.

Requirements

We look for graduates who are incredibly hardworking with a positive, ‘roll their sleeves up’ attitude. Those who join Aldi will blend intellect with a practical, business-focused mindset as you achieve impressive results with a world-class team.
