Do you have experience in a business advisory position? Experience working in the food sector? Then this role could be perfect for you.
Based in Durham, but with monthly international travel to the Middle East and South East Asia, this role is all about accelerating the development of international branches of big chains such as Pizza Express. All of the clients are based internationally, and you will be expected to work abroad (all expenses paid), for at least 7 days a month. Clients are based everywhere from Saudi Arabia to Singapore. This company works with private equity people - assessing whether restaurant chains are worth investing in, around the globe.
A thorough knowledge of the food sector is essential, to analyse investment credibility and potential. This is both for existing clients, as well as potential New Business Development. You will be expected to have very strong reporting and proposal writing skills. Presentation skills, and a thorough grasp of Microsoft PowerPoint is a must.
As this role requires regular international travel, you must be absolutely willing to commit to this. In general you will have over a weeks notice about where and when you will be going, but on occasion it can be less if the need arises. Flexibility is key.
You will be given constant and continuous training throughout, so a willingness to learn and get stuck in is really important.
Benefits include private health care, fully funded international travel, and 20 days holiday excluding bank holidays. Give me a call (Tom) on 0191 232 5661 for further info.
