Commercial Manager

£50,000 - £60,000

Nottingham - Permanent

Posted: 6 days ago

Ref: D0014862



Distinct are handling this position on an Exclusive basis. Our client is a market leading multi site FMCG business based in Nottingham with a turnover approaching £200m.

Supplying a range of products under numerous brands to customers on an international scale they are looking to appoint a hard working, ambitious and commercially minded candidate to the newly created role of Commercial Manager.



When you started your Accountancy qualification you knew deep down that preparing sets of accounts probably wasn’t going to float your boat. BUT, that the skills you’d gain around financial analysis and the capacity to dissect & interrogate data sets in a commercial business setting would stand you in good stead for your wider career.

This is most definitely NOT a typical role. You’ll work directly for the Group MD, a passionate and ambitious individual who has led the business to 4yrs of consecutive profitable growth.

Occupying the role of trouble-shooter & in agreement with the group MD you’ll represent the MD & Exec board leading a variety of projects across the group with the sole purpose of identifying & executing opportunities to reduce cost or increase sales revenue. In essence the work you do will have a direct impact on group profitability.

Examples of the work you could be involved with could include… working closely with Sales & Marketing Directors to agree appropriate pricing strategy, supporting commercial teams to set and review the performance of promotional campaigns, and working with Operations management to analyse existing ways of working, performance KPIs and agreeing appropriate change of direction where required.



You may be a qualified accountant, or you may not. You may’ve started your studies & been the person mentioned above who then stopped their studies.

What’s important is your mindset and having the intellectual capacity to work in a varied role, with challenging & demanding stakeholders.
