Managing a team of account managers, you will develop the team’s ability to nurture long lasting relationships with growers and adding value to their crops whilst promoting confidence and unity in your team.

Those with team management experience in the livestock/feed sector are also encouraged to apply.

You will be working with the commercial agricultural team as well as growers and outside stakeholders – this is an opportunity where you can make your mark in this agri-food giant through all levels.


Your Core Responsibilities include but are not limited to:

• Working with the Senior Agricultural Team to lead the development of strategic plans for growth and development

• Lead and inspire account managers to become more commercially acute by understanding the demands of the grower.

• Role model the production of account plans in order to effectively manage groups of growers by understanding their business plans for your team to follow.

• Responsible for sales to agreed targets, developing new sales opportunities


Key Requirements

• Agricultural Sales Team Management and Leadership experience

• Commercially astute and with a proven ability to deliver on business objectives

• A broad understanding of Agriculture with the ability to communicate with all people.

• Strong negotiating and selling skills

• Strategic thinking and perspective

• UK Driving Licence and willingness to travel due to nature of this important role.
