Job Description – Commercial Manager, Retail

Reporting to: Head of Retail

Location: Flexible 

Contract: Permanent, full time

Salary: £36,000 - £40,000

About FareShare UK

FareShare UK exists to turn an environmental problem into social good. We have a vision that ‘No Good Food should go to Waste’ and a mission to ‘Maximise the Social Value of Surplus Food’. In the UK supply chain alone, two million tonnes of surplus food go to waste each year. At the same time 6.7 million British people don’t always have enough to eat; two million of them are children.
We source this surplus food from fields & farms and from manufacturers and retailers, and help get it onto the plates of those who need it the most. With a UK-wide Network of delivery and retail partners we support over 10,500 UK charities to bring people together and tackle hunger – and help prevent food waste and its environmental impact. However, providing a meal only tackles the symptom of hunger; our food also helps charities to provide people with wrap-around services that lend a hand up more than a hand-out.

The demand for food from our charities is greater than ever, and we are expanding the Food Team (Commercial team) accordingly. If you want to be part of our story and join us at an exciting time in our growth and development, we’d really love to hear from you


 

The role

Working in FareShare’s “Food Team”, the Commercial Manager will work with UK Retailers to provide increasing volumes of surplus foods to the charities and community groups we support across the country; the success you have, together with your colleagues in the Food Team, will be critical to maintaining our growth.

Your role will be to identify, develop and manage new business relationships and strengthen existing business relationships with companies in the food industry, generating value for the retail partner and to secure growing and sustainable volumes of surplus food for the FareShare Network.

When it comes to our key Retail Partners, you will undertake a strategic account management role leading and coordinating FareShare’s engagement right across our organisation enabling us to leverage the appropriate influence, expertise, and funding from these key partners as well as food.

You will work with Retail Partners to help identify and overcome the barriers which exist to giving surplus food to people in need. These include operational, financial and historical issues, including competition from income streams available to industry e.g. selling surplus food to anaerobic digestion or animal feed processors

You will also be required to work closely with FareShare colleagues within FareShare and across the UK in our partner organisations in order to identify and understand opportunities for creating mutual and shared value.

Main areas of responsibility

Business Development and Relationship Management

  • Plan and manage the delivery of the FareShare Food Strategy relevant to your accounts. In your portfolio there will be a mixture of existing retail partner accounts, together with new retail partner targets.
  • Implement retail partner account management practices to support continued development and growth of key food partners (i.e JBP style of working)
  • Research, investigate and approach food retailers that have the potential to divert surplus food products to the FareShare network.
  • Research relevant key personnel within the organisation that will help drive its success and engage the relevant internal departments.
  • Prepare and proactively promote the benefits of working with FareShare to existing and potential partners.
  • Working with the retail partner and with FareShare’s supply Chain and Logistics Team develop systems and business processes which are appropriate for that partner and which will ensure they are managed in the most environmentally, socially and financially efficient way.
  • Be responsible for, and proactively drive, your own lead generation setting of appointments and meetings to progress these relationships
  • Scope and implement partnership agreements and/or service contracts between Fareshare and Retail Partners
  • Keep up to date with industry and charity insights and ensure this is reflected back strategically across ways of working and account management
  • Be responsible for managing and communicating key projects and initiatives to increase food volumes and strategic value, securing support from a range of stakeholders within food partners and across the FareShare network.
  • Work closely with Supply Chain and Logistics, Operations and Network Development teams with the aim of optimising food out to our network
  • Develop and lead FareShare cross-departmental strategic activity to enable us to derive maximum value from key food partners including liaising with fund-raising, marketing and volunteering teams
  • Proactive, organised and able to work under pressure, whilst maintaining excellent attention to detail
  • Excellent written and verbal communication with effective presentation skills
  • Good knowledge of Microsoft Office packages
  • A good level of numeracy and literacy
  • Analytical and data-driven approach to problem solving
  • Creative approach to problem solving and developing new opportunities and initiatives
