leave a comment »

We are delighted to be retained by a well known employer to recruit a Product Manager for their Marketing team as the present incumbent has just been promoted internally.

Our client is a European group, headquartered in France, with a solid distribution base for their products in the UK from a head office in Worcestershire. Their multi product offering is broad and covers a range of Original Equipment replacement parts for the independent automotive aftermarket: Clutches, brakes, lighting, wiping, electronics, etc.

The classic route to market is distribution based through a range of entry points.

The Product Manager will be responsible for a specific product range, ensuring a suitable product offering and pricing structure is maintained to keep abreast of the competition. Working closely with sales, you will be responsible for range management, development of the product catalogue, and all promotional activity. There will also be a high level of analytical detail in the role, managing product performance metrics, sales analysis and product pricing.

The ideal candidate will come from a classical marketing background, with a track record gained preferably in automotive aftermarket parts, although someone with  experience from within a branded, distribution based product environment will also be considered.

The role offers diverse opportunities for real ownership and autonomy, working in a gregarious, pleasant team environment, with excellent opportunities for advancement on a European level.

For more information, please send your CV to recruitment or call Cathy on 0845 269 9085.
