Senior Brand Manager – Innovation
£50K-£60K + car allowance + bonus
Big time ‘foodie’ who loves brand & product innovation work needed NOW for this challenging role with one of the biggest names in the food industry; a global QSR power brand, operating in over 120 markets across the world and offering an exciting product range with huge appeal to a wide consumer base. This is one of the top advertisers in the UK; a name that you will know well and a brand with ambitions to grow substantially over the next 5 years that is pioneering cutting-edge approaches to marketing.
In this key role, working within a high calibre unit within the marketing structure, you’ll report directly into the Innovation Director in a team that includes Technologists, NPD Managers and most importantly fellow food lovers. Your remit will include helping to deliver a new ‘Menu Vision’ for the brand, setting an innovation direction that contemporises the brand and fulfils changing consumer needs. You’ll also play a key role in fuelling the 18 month innovation pipeline with a stream of on-trend, limited time product offers that create excitement for the Instagram generation!
On a day-to-day basis, you’ll be creating the big ideas, working cross-functionally with internal and external partners: innovation and research agencies, chefs, suppliers and colleagues across the business. You will bring creativity, commerciality and consumer focus to the development process and be a key consultant for the marketing communications team as they deliver your ideas to market.
What we are looking for
This is a fab role for someone who can think big and make amazing things happen. Smart, commercially savvy and highly results-driven, you will have worked your way up the marketing ladder in an FMCG, retail or food related industry working on big brand-building initiatives. You will be a total foodie with a creative mind; someone who doesn’t take no for an answer and who can cut through the jargon and speak fluent ‘consumer’, using your knowledge and skills to drive thee company’s brand and menu vision forward.
This is a business with exceptional longer-term career development opportunities in the UK and beyond. You may be the next SBM but you won’t want it to stop just there, your ambition and hunger for the next move will see you thrive in a culture of building great international careers.
