Sales Executive 

 

Fancy joining an organic chocolate company and making a real impact from day 1?

We are a new British startup inspired by our founder's great-great-great grandfather John Cadbury. Love Cocoa aims to make British chocolate great again, reinventing chocolate classics with a contemporary touch being free-from: refined sugars, gluten, palm oil and other nasties.

This is a great opportunity to join a fast moving food brand that has launched in Fortnum & Mason, Harvey Nics, Planet Organic and over 75 independents this year alone.

We’re a small team based in East London (Old St, but soon to be London Fields WeWork) and are looking for an enthusiastic and energetic salesperson.

This role will consist of field sales as well as office work.

 

JOB RESPONSIBILITIES

  • Identifying and reporting on business opportunities in target markets - this can range from new products (e.g. chocolate spreads ) to new continents;
  • Sampling/in-store - attending tradeshows and other events to showcase products, as well as utilising marketing material to drive sales such as POS information;
  • Maximising new business development opportunities;
  • Reporting - building database (CRM) and providing Sales updates to the founding team.

 

LOOKING FOR

  • Positive attitude - you are prepared to work hard and think of solutions to problems
  • Embrace startup life - there are lots of up's and down's 
  • Confidence - able to go out and win new business. We do not have a book of contacts so will be hustling to get business

The perfect package

When buying these bars the quality of the chocolate was never in question-being of the same super tasty recipes as their bigger brothers and sisters that was garenteed- but what was a the forefront were "are these going to be big enough to satisfy?" , Well after snaffling a few I can confirm they certainly are - great for lunchboxes, great for treats and even better for a quick pick me up - now a must have in the office desk!

Lovely mini bars. Perfect for sharing.

I bought these for a family gathering we’re having soon. My granddaughter will enjoy putting one on each person’s bed for when they arrive. The honeycomb variety is my favourite so I expect they will be very popular,

Great for Snacking

These adorable mini-bars are just perfect for a packed lunch or mid-afternoon snack. Same great taste, just a smaller package.

Great things do come in small packages, after all!
