Commercial Manager | Cut Flowers | Kenya

Commercial Manager | Cut Flowers | Kenya 

  

We have a very intriguing and exciting opportunity for someone who is looking for something of an adventurous next move. Our client is a leading Kenyan grower and supplier of Fresh Produce and Cut Flowers, supplying retailers across Europe and the Middle East. They are currently looking to recruit a Commercial Manager to head up their Flower sales. Their ideal candidate, will be someone who has a good knowledge of the Middle Eastern and European retailers and is looking for something a bit different and to be based in Kenya.

  

The Role:

You will be managing the company's commercial interests, and liaising with a range of customers and retailers from across the Middle East and Europe (incl UK) 

Business development will be a key part of the role and you will ensure that business keeps moving forward.   

You will be required to visit the company's farms on a regular basis to ensure you are close to the product and aware of any and all upcoming challenges. 

You will also be managing a team of people, ensuring their day to day objectives are communicated clearly

  

The Candidate:

Experience within the cut flower industry, either within the UK, Europe or the Middle East is essential. You will need to have a good knowledge of the retailers in these regions as well. If you don't have this, then there is no need to apply. 

Strong commercial awareness is clearly key to the success of this position, but they are open minded if this is in the form of procurement or sales expertise. As long as you can turn your hand to a range of requirements and be professional in front of customers then that is a big part of the role.

Good team management experience will be a big benefit.
