Category Manager – Tesco Account
Circa £45k plus £10k car allowance and executive benefits
A £multimillion turnover, branded and own label, fresh food producer with a category leading status in the ‘big 4’ seeks to appoint a Category Manager for their Tesco account.
Based from their Leeds site and reporting to the head of category marketing you will be tasked with optimising the performance of this key category by working very closely with the retailer to ensure the right range, pricing structure and promotional plan are being optimised.
Your remit will include responsibility for range management (incl. delisting and gap analysis), NPD and EPD (using shopper insight technology), merchandising, category planning and reviewing and competitor analysis.
The Category Manager will be able to devise and execute category growth plans and so will need to have spent time in a category biased marketing role.
If this was in the food sector then all the better and if it included Tesco experience then even better still
Naturally you will need a strong analytical mind and a strategic outlook. Effective communication skills and strong customer relationship skills are imperative too.
One of the UK’s biggest food companies with a string of awards to their name alongside some leading brands and a fantastic presence in own label. They have a reputation for looking after their people offering not only a fantastic salary and benefit packages but as much training as you can handle and a career development plan tailored around you.
If you are kicking your heels in your current role because of a lack of investment, a lack of a future or both then I’d like to hear from you. Please apply on line as indicated below.
