Overview

The last few years have seen phenomenal growth within the vegetation/vegan sector.  With turnover increasing, increased distribution, award-winning new products combined with changing consumer behaviour have been the major pillars for success. Not to mention the brilliant commercial team behind it. Green Cuisine has shown the opportunity to reap the benefits from one of the UK’s fastest-growing and on-trend categories and they only plan to increase this. With focus on their OOH channel if you want a role which is not your convention FMCG this is it.

 

We have grown in our retail division and now want to gain a strong footing within Out of Home (OOH). This growing segment is where we will see new partnerships and co-creation of Green Cuisine products with our restaurant and wholesaler partners.

 

There is an exciting opportunity to join the Green Cuisine team as a Senior National Account Manager responsible for the company’s biggest area of opportunity – Out of Home.
