About our Client:

Our client is one of the world's favourite confectionary manufacturers and is seeking a Brand Manager for an exciting role! 

This is a world renowned, much loved business which is growing fast and in a really exciting acquisition phase, bringing new categories and brands to their armoury. 

They have a fantastic ethos and culture where all employees are passionate about the brand and team success. The structure of the company allows flexibility and fluidity, there are no glass ceilings and it is an opportunity to really grow with the brands & progress through the ranks. 

With great brands across on trend categories, this company knows how to utilise consumer friendly marketing spend and appeal to all ages and backgrounds. There is a strong focus on bringing new products to the market as well as acquiring new brands - which with the right additions to the already talented team - will see these guys go from strength to strength. 

Not to mention culturally this business is huge fun to work for! There is a real empowerment and autonomy which is rare in the market - all the while having a good camaraderie and a work hard play hard style. 

These guys want a Senior Brand Manager within 12 months for their number 1 brand so it is imperative that you are ready to take that jump and really accelerate your learning and career

About the Role:

You will be responsible for the number 1 brand in the business, managing consumer insights, keeping in touch with market trends, building and implementing brand plans as well as activating trade marketing activities. You will be joining a dynamic marketing team which requires individuals who have a good deal of intellect, focus, drive, passion and energy.

The difference with this business is that this is truly creative brand.  You will have full remit, with the backing of a large budget, to implement ABL, BTL, POS and masses of social media content in order to continue the rise and rise of this world renowned brand. 

This is an opportunity not to be missed and is perfect for those who want to get that internal and external exposure that is so limited in other businesses. 

About You:

We’re looking for an energetic Brand Manager dedicated to the number 1 brand in the business to support the Marketing Manager in delivering the 3-year business plan.

Ideally you will be an enthusiastic Foodie with a passion for brand and pushing marketing boundaries both ABL and in store. You will be a highly organised and talented individual looking to take the next step in your career as rapid progression to Senior Brand Manager level is absolutely critical.  As an entrepreneurial business with an incredible amount of consumer facing activity, you will be rewarded with a chance to make a real impact and see your hard work generate excitement in your customer base.

We need a Brand Manager focused on the bigger picture who wants to push and challenge themselves, perhaps frustrated by a flat structure or the lack of ambition shown by your current business. Because these guys are at the opposite end of the spectrum!
