The successful candidate will be a strong communicator, an experienced time and project manager, able to coordinate other resources to meet deadlines.  Using your initiative and great planning skills you’ll be confident in a target driven environment.  High-level customer care skills are essential, with proven experience of resolving supplier and/or customer issues.   You will also have knowledge of and interest in sustainable development, corporate social responsibility.   Ideally, you’ll have experience in the food industry in a sales, business development or manufacturing role, and commercial relationship experience.
