Internally you will work closely with the National Accounts Management team to ensure that you are communicating on key new product trends within your bakery supplier portfolio that can be introduced to market and also that any client requirements and briefs are communicated back through to your accounts.

• Candidates with experience in Account Management and managing a portfolio of Foodservice accounts will be of particular interest.
• Candidates with an interest in Food and a Foodie approach will be of particular interest.
