Fieldsales Manager – Gateshead

There’s every chance you’ll have eaten our food, so why not share our success and come and work for us? Bidfood is a leading wholesale food distributor and the preferred supplier for over 60,000 customers across the UK, ranging from pubs to schools, from restaurants to care homes and everything in between.
From Lands End to John O’Groats, whether our customers want just a teaspoon or a full range of catering supplies, we’ll supply their needs. We work as a team to provide every food option from quality ingredients to finished meals, including a number of own brand ranges as well as all the big brands and regional specialities. We believe in our food, and we know that our people behind the scenes are so very important in our success.
At Bidfood, we recognise that the quality of our sales team is instrumental to our success. Our Fieldsales Manager needs to be able to recruit, induct, train, mentor and engage their teams, to inspire them to be the best they can be.

You will need to ensure you have an effective sales strategy which is communicated to the team and ensure that they are trained and supported as necessary to enable them to achieve their new business and existing business growth targets.

With proven sales experience of meeting and exceeding targets, to be successful in this role you’ll have very strong people management and development skills and be able to build strong relationships with other departments, have good computer literacy skills and be flexible in order to meet the needs of the business. If this is you, we look forward to hearing from you.
