Job Details

Wow, this is a different opportunity!

Are you a successful sales person, looking for a new challenge, working with different products and a new range of customers to your usual agricultural sales job? Then read on;

We are looking for a sales manager who has an interest in food, someone who can sell the product of this unique farm and take it into some of the best restaurants in London and the South East.

This Essex coast farm yields high quality produce which some of the best chefs in the best restaurants love - your job is to get more of them on board.

We want an entrepreneur with true sales and commercial skills who can sell the product and story of this amazing farm, who can open new doors, build strong networks and sales channels. You will have autonomy to develop your business but the security and support of working direct with the MD.

It does not matter if you have not sold fresh food before, what matters is your passion, enthusiasm, drive and determination. If you can sell to farmers, you can sell produce to restaurants.

This is a true opportunity to grow the business but also to grow yourself through the business too.
