Fentimans are a privately owned premium drinks business based in Hexham, Northumberland. They produce a range of botanically brewed soft drinks and mixers that have a reputation for taste and quality and have enjoyed significant growth in recent years, building a solid position as one of the top brands in the UK premium soft drinks market. In addition to the UK, they have a rapidly growing international business, serving consumers in 75 countries worldwide.
As they continue to grow they are expanding the category management team to better meet the needs of their customers. The team sits within the wider sales function but has close links to marketing, supply chain, and finance to ensure their growth is focussed in the right areas.
Reporting into the Sales Operations Controller the Senior Category Manager will play a leading role with Fentimans' largest Grocery and On-Trade customers, turning category data and insight into ambitious growth plans. They will develop strong relationships with buyers, merchandisers and customer category teams to become the ‘go to’ source of category insight and recommendations.
