They place a strong emphasis on supporting local raw material and packaging suppliers and where ever possible always use UK based suppliers. They are equally proud of their welfare and environmental policies, as none of their products have ever been, or ever will be tested on animals, nor do they contain any animal ingredients or derivatives and all of their products are BUAV and ‘The Vegetarian Society’ approved. As well as this, all of their packaging is recyclable and they do not use aerosols and only use Palm Oil from approves sustainable suppliers.

They have recently made a ‘6 figure’ investment in the development of a new Luxury cosmetic brand and they are now looking for a Senior Sales Manager to launch their product into the UK market, specifically targeting high end department stores such as; Harrods, Selfridge's and House of Fraser.

You will be given full support from the business and all the resources and tools needed to make sure that the range is a success.

You will have 5-8 years’ experience within either of these markets, selling into accounts such as Harrods, Selfridge's,John Lewis, House of Fraser and Debenhams. Ideally you will have been involved in new product launches and have been involved in a large amount of new business development. You will be looking for an opportunity to be involved with a fast paced, highly successful business and possess a highly commercial and innovative mind with an ability to think on your feet. For those with the ambition and determination to succeed you will be rewarded not only financially but with on-going training, development and promotion.

This is an excellent opportunity to be at the beginning of what my client hopes to be a number one luxury brand and with the Investment, Backing and Passion of the whole business, all that is needed is the right person to drive the business forward.

If you are not able to demonstrate stability or longevity in your career to date and/or do not have experience of selling a luxury brand or product range into highend or luxury retail, you will not be considered for this role.
