Job Description

Background

This BRAND NEW role will work on a new category for a multi-award winning Global Consumer Electronics brand based in Bucks. This new category is one that right now couldn't be any more on-trend if it tried! PPE. Now I'm not talking about the facemask you wear to Tesco, but the kind of PPE you would need working in the construction industry.

This new category is predicted to reach over £3m revenue in its first year, so this is not a role for the faint-hearted. It will be fast-paced but very rewarding.

This business is recognized worldwide for its deep heritage, superior quality, outstanding performance and class innovation. Focusing on the B2B market with a strong emerging B2C range, this business won multiple awards in 2019/20 for its industry-leading innovation and there are big plans for 2021.

This isn't a role you will want to miss out on!
