Reporting directly to the Chief Executive Officer is responsible for the successful marketing and sale of BMC products and, in particular, the development of a wider customer base and new markets.
The Commission is operating in the highly competitive international meat trade and it must aggressively promote its products world-wide and constantly identify new customers, and market opportunities. Although currently the bulk of the Commission’s products are marketed and sold in the EU, liberalisation of international trade will mean that the Commission must compete in a more open market.
With a world excess of meat and meat products, the Sales and Marketing Manager, in addition to opening up new markets, identifying opportunities for new products, and seeking out new customers, must also defend the Commission’s existing customer base. This case be achieved by working closely with Production and Quality Assurance to ensure that products conform to customer specifications, and that customer orders are executed expeditiously.
