With huge change comes huge opportunity. So, wherever you join us, you’ll enjoy the freedom to dream up and deliver better, brighter solutions and the space to move your career forward in endlessly different directions.

If you want to make a life-changing impact on Customers, there’s nowhere better to develop your career.

Your day to day
You will be the ‘Front Line’, for our sales driven, Field Based Team. You’ll work directly with General Trade, Wholesale Partners, Key Account Partners and similar Accounts to educate, inform and support them in the sale of our portfolio of products. This role is to cover mainly Crawley, Redhill, Tunbridge Wells and surrounding areas as territory.

As a frontline Brand Advocate for PMI, you’ll have excellent product knowledge and a real understanding of our Consumers. Your role will be to drive sales through collaboration and relationship building, enabling Retailers and Wholesalers alike, to maximise their profitability through the successful sales of our products.

Gaining insights and a detailed understanding of your territory, you’ll work closely with your Area Activation Manager to create a bespoke sales strategy, initiating ideas to create awareness and sell our Brands.

As part of a results focused team, you will support, inspire each other, and share strategies for success.

  • You’ll have experience in a Sales, or target driven environment, have the ability, to utilise supporting data and, be dedicated to keeping the Customer at the heart of your decision making.
  • You’ll enjoy being creative about your approach, with an entrepreneurial attitude to help build awareness for the brand.
  • Partnering with Retailers, you’ll need the emotional intelligence to nurture genuine relationships through a business lens.
