National Account Executive

location:

Fruit Towers - London

team:

Sales

innocent started with a simple mission: to make drinks that make it easy to do yourself some good. In 1999 we concocted a few smoothies in our kitchen and tested them on people at a music festival; today we’re blending every type of fruit & veg under the sun and selling drinks right across Europe. We have great ambitions: to show the world that you can build a successful business that cares about more than just profit, and to leave things better than we find them. We’re proud to call ourselves Europe’s favourite little healthy drinks company, but we’re still growing. And that means we need more brilliant people who share our ambition, to join in with the next, most exciting, part of our story.

what you'll be doing

We are looking for a top-notch National Account Executive (or, Commercial Executive as we say at innocent) to come and join our Grocery team. 

This is a fantastic opportunity to support the development of some of our key accounts. This is a fast-paced and varied role that will give you a broad overview of how our Grocery team ticks. 

As with all commercial roles, you’ll need to be super-organised and great at getting the fundamentals of the customer ticking over - stuff like promotional planning, forecast accuracy and general account management administration, so strong attention to detail is a must.

you'll have

We’re looking for someone who can demonstrate commercial thinking, plus you’ll need the following important attributes:

  • You need to be comfortable dealing with numbers and have a good grasp of a P&L - strong analytical skills and experience of using Excel are a must
  • A quick learner, you’ll have bags of initiative and be pro-active at getting things done. Previous experience in working on a retail account is a bonus
  • You’re an effective communicator with the ability to build trust and credibility both externally and internally
  • You’re personable and engaging with a proven record of strong relationship building

Finally, you’ll need to be rather organised. This is a role with a wide array of internal and external responsibilities and stakeholders, so we’ll be looking for someone with a track record of juggling priorities.

you'll get

As well as the standard stuff you get for turning up for work, we have some great clubs, a free breakfast and as many smoothies as you can shake a stick at. Take a look at our rewards page for more details of all these benefits and more.

You will help us to keep doing business the right way – keeping innocent one of the Sunday Times Best Places to Work, using our B Corp status to inspire wider change, and reinforcing our culture of staying little as we grow big.

If you think you have everything we're looking for and more, then we'd love to hear from you. You'll need to get your skates on though, as applications close soon.
