WHY FIT IN, WHEN YOU CAN STAND OUT?
We're proud to be the UK's leading pub, cider and beer company. With over 2,300 colleagues employed across the UK, we offer fantastic opportunities for people with talent and drive. From brewing to sales and marketing, from logistics to finance, IT and HR - there's much more to our business than you might imagine.
Our unrivalled portfolio of brands includes Foster's, Strongbow, Old Mout, Bulmers, Desperados and of course the world-renowned Heineken® and, with 2,900 pubs, we're one of the UK's leading leased pub businesses and a passionate supporter of the great British pub.
We've ambitious goals. And we know it's the expertise and enthusiasm of our people that fuels our growth. Right now we're looking for an outstanding Key Account Manager to join our Blade Sales team.
Blade is an innovative professional beer draught system. It's small footprint and innovative compression system which doesn't require CO2 or any other gasses allows you to serve premium draught beer from any countertop. Thanks to a smaller eight litre keg and our Brewlock technology which forces compressed air between the out bottle and inner container, once fitted, the Blade system can be used to dispense premium, chilled beer anytime, anywhere.
The Key Account Manager will be responsible for delivering the budgeted volume & profit with distributors in the Asian Wholesale Channel. The Key Account Manager will determine the strategic context underpinning the trading relationship & seek to maximise profit, brand distribution (Blade & Tiger draught/packaged) and New Product Development (NPD) within that context. These relationships are likely to be complex and the post holder will report directly to the Sales director for Blade and the Account Director for wholesale.
If you are looking for your first step into the world of Heineken and have experience in sales alongside strong verbal and influencing skills then we want to hear from you! The ability to speak Mandarin or Cantonese would be beneficial but not essential.
PRIDE IN WHO WE ARE, PASSION FOR WHAT WE DO
If you'd like to stand out, rather than fit in, we'd love to hear from you.
