New vacancy – Business Manager Restrain UK
Restrain is an internationally recognised Agritech business that has been supplying farmers and growers in the fresh produce industry with an alternative to chemical applications in storage for over 20 years. The business has recently improved its internal structure to allow for a more tailored sales approach in each sales region and as such is now looking for a Busin
Restrain is looking for an experienced Business Manager to lead its team in the UK. This is a relatively new structure for the business and is aimed at giving the in-country teams greater control over their delivery of the company strategy. The UK Business Manager will be responsible for the sales team (as well as managing their own customers), operational planning and investments. These responsibilities will adapt and develop as the UK growth plans are realised. With a direct line into the Managing Director, this role will have the capability to react quickly to customer requirements, but will also have strategic support for medium to long term growth plans. This position has multiple routes for development, depending on the desires and capabilities of the selected candidate as well as the opportunities generated through Restrain’s growth.
The successful applicant will have a proven track record in an agricultural sales / business development environment in the UK. Understanding of the market mechanism is crucial and the ability to engage with growers / farmers is just as important as interacting with upstream and downstream decision-makers within the potatoes sector. The role is home-based, but you will be required to travel within the UK as needed for the role as well as to our office in Breda, Netherlands. Whilst location is flexible, if you were based in the East Midlands area, this would be an advantage. You don’t need to have proven General Management experience to be successful in this role, but you will need to recognise the opportunity and be willing to learn and adapt quickly. Restrain is committed to growing the UK (and the broader business) so you will have comprehensive commercial, technical and marketing support.
