Job description

We are looking for someone to join our Wholesale team! If you have a keen interest in food and developing relationships with Cheesemongers across the UK whilst being part of an energetic and fast-paced team, this could be the perfect opportunity for you.

The successful applicant will manage their own retail accounts ranging from small delis to large farm shops across the UK. This is a full time Monday to Friday role based at our offices and maturation rooms in Bermondsey with the opportunity to work some of the time from home.

Farmhouse cheese is ever changing so a key part of the role is tasting cheese daily. We need to communicate effectively about flavour and availability, using this info to advise and train our customers, helping to grow their sales to meet and exceed our own targets.

You need to be meticulous, quick to learn, energetic, positive and most of all passionate about continuing to support our cheesemakers and our industry.  You will be a key face and voice of Neal’s Yard Dairy, and will regularly welcome customers to our maturation rooms, as well as assist in organising wholesale events and trainings. You will therefore need to be confident addressing large groups of people and have a natural inclination to host and train.

An understanding of the food and retail industry is essential, a background in sales and cheese would be advantageous. Whatever your background you must be passionate about cheese and delivering excellent service.

We offer a competitive package, full on the job training, staff lunches and a steady supply of excellent tea, coffee, fresh bread and cheese.
