Category Strategy Manager

This is a great opportunity to work with a brand & portfolio of products which has seen impressive, consistent levels of growth in recent years, and shows no signs of slowing down.

In a market where products & product lines are being continually squeezed, being in control of a category with a hugely loyal customer base and increasing levels of market share gives you a great advantage.

Having moved from being a challenger to a market leader in recent years, the business have led the way in terms of category & commercial strategy both offline and online, and this is your chance to be a part of it.

It's a highly visible role both internally & externally, and as such you'll need to demonstrate:

  • Classic category management expertise - analytical, insightful and commercial in equal measure
  • The ability to build highly profitable and long lasting customer relationships, being the go-to category expert for buyers
  • A savvy, politically sensitive mentality, with the capability to work with multiple teams and stakeholders internally to pull together strategy across functions
  • A customer-first mentality, with the empathy to get into the shopper's mindset
  • Ambition - the company want people to push & challenge the status quo, and have a desire to be a future leader globally

Highly competitive salary, benefits package and training & development programme on offer, with the opportunity to move globally and into other functions in future.
