The emphasis will be on your contribution and total involvement to achieve the successful completion of the sale to the UK Customer. You would effectively be the UK arm of the Growers in your particular Unit. As a successful Business Unit Manager you can expect a Board appointment in recognition of your achievements.

Product knowledge and operational experience would be key to the success of the Unit.

Expected Requirements:

  • A robust Fresh Produce background to include one of the featured Categories.
  • Experience in Selling / Trading with various Retail and Non-Retail customers.
