Reporting into: National Field Sales Manager
It’s an exciting time to join the Forthglade family now we are settled into our new state-of-the-art factory in Okehampton. We’ve been proudly producing natural pet food in Devon since 1971, and things have changed a lot since then. Today we produce more than 750,000 trays of food for dogs every week, but one thing remains the same; customers remain at the heart of what we do.
This is an important role driving sales of Forthglade across the independent pet trade in the south west of England. The role is ideal for someone with a passion for animals, good field-based selling experience and a desire to develop their career in sales.
Main duties & responsibilities
Reporting to the National Field Sales Manager, the primary purpose of the role is to drive sales within the independent pet trade channel by growing range, space and visibility for Forthglade products within independent pet shops across a defined geographical territory. This is achieved by presenting the benefits of stocking the Forthglade range, negotiating for additional listings, introducing and gaining listings for NPD, placing Forthglade point of sale materials in store to highlight products and promotional activity, gaining additional shelf space and taking transfer orders to drive physical stock into stores. In addition, the BDM role is targeted to identify and gain listings in new retail customers who currently don’t stock Forthglade products across outlets such as independent pet shops, equestrian and animal feed outlets, country stores, farm shops and garden centres. BDM’s are also responsible for the day to day relationship with any regional wholesalers that are based on their geographical territory along with small regional retail chains.
