A great opportunity for a marketing candidate with strong brand management experience.  This role offers the opportunity to work with strong existing brands and develop and build new brands in trend categories.


If you have a real interest in the food industry and the detail behind what drives those brands and the future for brand management, this is an excellent senior level role to be on the senior team working directly with the Board.


Understanding this dynamic industry and how to find that competitive edge for your brand is always evolving and this is a great challenge to take this business through the next stage to develop their marketing strategy across their brand portfolio.


The business is dynamic in approach and pride themselves on the market leading position.  Strong brands, impressive innovation as well as a long-standing customer base are great foundations for the next stage in the brand development.  There is work to do with the current range but some very exciting brands to build in categories that are seeing massive growth in the UK.


An agile organisation able to move at speed and with the support from the Board down, this is a role of key importance to the business.


The Brand Manager role involves:

  • Developing a brand strategy for the existing products.
  • Working closely with NPD to get into the detail and know the category, competitors and where the next growth will come from.
  • Be a key part of the next stages of innovation in line with business objectives.
  • Delivering commercial growth through effective brand marketing campaigns.
  • Work collaboratively and engage fully with the relevant functions.
  • Communicate effectively, advising and gaining buy in from the relevant stakeholders.
  • Reporting into the Board as a key member of the senior team.
  • Developing internal relationships to help shape and grow the long-term strategy for the brands.
  • A flexible approach is adopted around a mixture of WFH and time in the office.


What background are we looking for to apply for this Brand Manager role?

  • Previous experience of brand growth in the food and drinks industry – essential.
  • Working with brands for retail – essential.
  • Excellent numerical and analytical skills demonstrated through effective data interpretation and analysis.
  • A clear and confident communicator, able to influence and present to all levels.
  • Strong team ethics able to engage and become a trusted and respected member of the team.
  • Motivated and working on own initiative.
  • A creative, ambitious approach and mind set.


It’s hard to express in a job advert but you really do need to be passionate about product development, what works in the food industry and ultimately drives the growth in these brands in the category.  This is a great opportunity to report into an inspiring Marketing Director working closely to drive real change.
