innocent started with a simple mission: to make drinks that make it easy to do yourself some good. In 1999 we concocted a few smoothies in our kitchen and tested them on people at a music festival; today we’re blending every type of fruit & veg under the sun and selling drinks right across Europe. We have great ambitions: to show the world that you can build a successful business that cares about more than just profit, and to leave things better than we find them. We’re proud to call ourselves Europe’s favourite little healthy drinks company, but we’re still growing. And that means we need more brilliant people who share our ambition, to join in with the next, most exciting, part of our story.

 

what you'll be doing

We’re looking for someone to be a National Account Manager for one of our major grocery accounts. The role offers the opportunity to work with buyers on front of store, back of store and dairy alternatives.

The role brings lots of senior team exposure, cross-functional working (with our Category, Shopper Marketing, Market Leader and Customer Supply teams) and as much creativity as you can muster. You’ll have one direct report (a commercial exec), so you will need to help develop our future talent, as well as smash the day job. You’ll get stuck into the detail, understanding the forecast, promotional activity and everything else in between. You’ll own the relationship with your customer and visit them regularly, making it your mission to understand them and their business inside out.

 

you'll have

A passion for selling, great negotiation skills as well as loads of resilience and positivity. 

Experience as a buyer or an account manager in the FMCG world will help tip the scales in your favour. 

 

you'll get

loads of commercial experience, line management experience and the opportunity to make a huge impact on the success of innocent.

In return for everything you can bring, we can offer you an exciting, challenging role in a fast-growing and dynamic business, with plenty of career opportunities in the UK and across Europe as well as a competitive rewards package.  We also have some great clubs, a free breakfast and as many smoothies as you can shake a stick at. Take a look at our reward page for more details.

 

If you think you have everything we're looking for and more, then we'd love to hear from you. You'll need to get your skates on though, as applications close soon. 

 

Dolly Parton may have worked Nine to Five but you don't have to. We're all about being healthy and happy here at innocent so we're open to a chat about flexible working. No promises, but we reckon that if it's good for you, then it's good for us.
