The Role

Vita Coco is looking for dynamic and highly capable nuts, based in London, to join our sales team. Our perfect nut is hard to crack, willing to fall the extra distance, gets stuck in, loves meeting new people and has more personality than your average fruit.

  • Building and developing relationships with retailers and wholesalers
  • Developing tactical strategies to increase distribution in our existing accounts and maximize promotions
  • Working with our marketing team to bring the brand to life in-store through point of sale materials and creative, eye catching displays
  • Working with our wholesalers to execute target customer lists and make sure Vita Coco is always front-of-mind

Customer Relationship Management

  • Create & pitch targeted presentations for key clients and management
  • Helping build and maintain a database of all Vita Coco stockists in London, tracking prospects, leads, and stockists
  • Develop ongoing target lists to complement specific channel or location-based initiatives
  • Using MS Excel and Powerpoint to communicate and analyze your work
