Based in our award-winning Bristol head office and reporting to Pukka’s Head of UK Sales, this is a 12-month fixed term position to cover maternity leave.

About the opportunity

This exciting opportunity calls for an outstanding candidate to join us and cover a Maternity Leave as National Account Manager for our Healthcare Mults and Online. Delivering our ambitious sales and profit targets for Holland & Barrett, Boots and Amazon, this is a challenging and fast-paced role in a growing business with a fantastic story at its heart to inspire our customers.

As National Account Manager you will continue to develop and implement agreed joint business plans and ensure the accounts deliver to their full potential across the entire Pukka portfolio. You will manage both strategic and tactical aspects of each account, including managing any distribution changes, NPD launches, events, promotional activity, and any off-shelf features.

Able to draw on your business achievements to date, you will be able to demonstrate how you’d pick up the reigns and hit the ground running in this busy sales role.

If you are looking to join our UK Sales team on this 12-month interim contract, you’ll thrive at pace, be resilient dealing with ambiguity, and turn challenge and obstacles into decisive and purposeful action.
