Regional Sales Executive - Specialist Retail (Premium Gin / Whisky)

£30,000 - £35,000 + Company Car + Bonus + Pension

Field Based - Midlands / South East

An exciting new opportunity has arisen within a well-known international drinks business. They have an incredibly diverse portfolio of brands across a number of drinks categories including premium gin and Scotch whisky and are well established both in the UK and internationally. They now require a Regional Sales Executive to cover a range of specialist retail accounts across the Midlands and South East.

Working closely with the current UK Sales Director you will be responsible for a wide variety of specialist accounts across the midlands and south east of England. There will be a range of independent and multi-site operators such as bottle shops and specialist whisky retailers and a number of key accounts including Master of Malt and Oddbins. The role will feature a mix of account management and new business development and you will have the opportunity to support with trade shows and customer training within the on-trade as well.

To be considered for this exciting opportunity you must have UK sales experience from within the alcoholic drinks industry. Those with existing connections in the specialist retail sector will be preferred but individuals from other channel backgrounds are encouraged to apply. This role will be field based and very autonomous so a driven candidate with the hunger to succeed in a competitive market is required. The business has a fantastic supportive culture and offers real scope for future progression
