What sets this role apart from all the other commercial executive roles out in the market right now?  Training, development, the experience in the team and the internal structure in place that offers a great platform for the early stages of your commercial career.


Working in the FMCG sector is an ideal industry sector to have under your belt for later in your career.  Making a success in a fast-paced category working on major retailer accounts immediately displays agility, commerciality and adaptability.  You need to be high energy for the pace of the industry and as mentioned above, the support offered to develop the commercial executives is unrivalled.  A lot of thought has gone into the recruitment process from Director level and discussed at length across the commercial team.  Time will be dedicated to this key resource.


If you’re a self-starter with commercial skills and want to further develop in account management this could be the ideal next step in a business who can support your development.  Whether you have been to university or not, it’s about your drive to deliver, numeric competency and understanding the customers requirements that will give you a successful career in Commercial.


  • Maybe your plans straight after graduating have changed and this is ideal first job after university?
  • You may have decided university is not for you and the right opportunity just hasn’t been there?
  • Has your first post-grad role not worked out and you know you need a new environment?
  • Maybe you are more experienced but are looking for a part-time role? The flexibility is there to work around those needs.


Whatever your circumstances, if you are wanting a commercial career, a planned development programme and to work in a fast paced, busy environment let’s discuss it in more detail.  Novus know this team and will spend the time to understand you, your career aspirations and expectations.  The first step is to get in touch and if you have a cv, send that through, and let’s start the process.
