Your role will be to champion our independent outlets, both finding new places to stock Peppersmith and growing our business through existing outlets. These premium stores were some of our very first stockists and represent the heartbeat of our business. Like us, they’re owned and operated by passionate people who really care about the food and drink they sell.

Key responsibilities

- Following up new leads and proactively heading out to find new places to stock our range.
- Growing business through our existing independent stores by selling in new products and working with them to increase our rate of sale.
- Communicating and managing promotions and special offers and getting physical marketing materials to store.
- Managing our database of independent customers and smaller chains. Keeping all activity, changes and new additions up to date.
- Making sure that all customer orders, either from our distributors or direct to us, are fulfilled as quickly and efficiently as possible.
- Contributing to the wider sales team, helping to implement new listings or promotions in some of the larger chains, for example, making merchandising visits to new stores.
- As part of a small team you will also be expected to get stuck into all other areas of the business as needed, including helping out at events, sampling, assisting with marketing activities, having supply chain duties and generally mucking in wherever required. This will include the odd weekend.

The individual

- This role would suit a fresh graduate with a real desire to get involved in a start-up business.
- You must have a passion for sales, business, food & brands and be able to demonstrate a real entrepreneurial spirit.
- Previous sales experience is a bonus but the role is open to anyone bright and hungry enough to make a difference to our growing business.
- You should be able to sell ice to the Inuits, sand to the Saudis, bumbags to kangaroos etc etc.
- Your time will be split between being out on the road and in our office. You should expect to spend at least three days a week out and about visiting stores.
- You should be confident in using Microsoft Office programs especially Outlook and Excel, be able to work independently and proactively, manage your own time and responsibilities and be able to sell bumbags to kangaroos.
