National Accounts Executive

WORK FOR US

Boost Drinks started with one entrepreneur, a small office with no windows, two phones and a team of mice to keep us on our toes. Fast forward 21 years and we are an award-winning, well-known brand being sold in over ten countries!

Just like our drinks, our culture is bold, fun, and energises everybody in everyway. We are currently looking for a National Accounts Executive to join the team.

The National Accounts Executive (NAE) manages existing accounts and contributes to making Boost an indispensable business partner!

The NAE thrives on challenge, change and opportunity which is a good job because there isn’t such a thing as a typical day! They will likely be presenting, implementing plans and developing trading strategies with the wider wholesale team, and of course taking orders! The NAE will be regularly engaging with their account contacts largely by phone but occasionally and increasingly face to face. It is an exciting and challenging role with a focus on winning with customer plans and managing the account to deliver the objectives and ensuring we energise all of the accounts in every way!

The NAE works as a member of the tight sales team, who individually and collectively drive our business forward! The role is largely working from a home base/in the field but with weekly days in the Leeds office amongst the wider team.
