We develop our products in the U.K (with an office and suppliers based in the Far East) and sell to over 30 ‘blue-chip’ National Accounts in the U.K including toy and cycle specialists, supermarkets, value chains, mixed multiples, on-line and omni-channel retailers.

The company is expanding its sales function and there is a need for an ambitious, dynamic, tenacious, and planned National Account Manager to grow existing National Accounts and develop new ones.

The Role

Reporting to the Head of Sales this position is a challenging and rewarding role where you get to be involved in selling licensed products based on kid’s favourite characters such as Peppa Pig, Paw Patrol, Spider-Man, Barbie, and Batman; not to mention our successful own- brands such as Hedstrom, Stunted, Kickmaster and Wired.

This is a great and rewarding opportunity for a planned, numerate, commercially minded and highly organised individual with an ability to conduct strategic sales objectives and exceed set targets.

As an important part of a collaborative and flexible sales department you will also need to be a trustworthy and persuasive team player which will enable you to galvanise the support of your colleagues and the wider business in making sure your goals and objectives are achieved.

Experience in selling toys, gifts, sports, and leisure products would be an advantage.

Attractive salary with a full benefits package including bonus, pension, and company car. Home based with regular office visits.
