About this job…


One of our team is heading off on parental leave shortly, so we’re looking for an experienced Key Account Manager to hit the ground running in this key role where you’ll lead relationships, negotiations and business development with a large portfolio of well-known retail liquor banners.  You’ll have the support of a Key Account Executive to help manage the day-to-day as you focus on planning and executing initiatives that positively impact profit and volume targets for us and our customers.  And you’ll get the chance to be part of some exciting projects and NPD as we pivot to increase our market share and nail our strategic objectives.


If you’ve read this and you’re thinking “yep, I tick those boxes”, then we want to hear from you TODAY.  Success in managing key accounts across a diverse customer base is a must, and expertise in the FMCG/liquor retail sector will see your application rise to the top.  With a direct report, you’d ideally have people leadership experience or, at the very least,  demonstrate the hallmarks of an inspiring, caring leader.  As you might expect in this type of role, you’ll need a full/clean NZ drivers licence as a company vehicle will be provided. 


As we said, if this sounds like a role (and a place) that fits well with your experience to date, apply today!
