You’ll drive the scaling of the business, and manage a talented growing team, as well as relationships with suppliers and distributors. We are looking for a potential successor to the CEO in the future who treats the business as their own.

If you have FMCG experience, a product-centric approach and are passionate about the social impact of quality, organic, ethical products, this is an incredible opportunity. You also need to have:

  • Exceptional leadership and management capability
  • Strong financial management and budgeting experience
  • An entrepreneurial view – be an out of the box thinker and problem solver
  • A passion for small business
  • Ability to manage existing accounts and to develop and implement service schedules/deliveries appropriate to customer needs and demands
  • Ability to manage inventory and have a knowledge of warehousing and distribution best practices
  • Experience building or growing a business or business unit
  • Ideally have both Corporate and SME experience
  • NPD as well as e-commerce experience is beneficial but not essential

Culture fit, the right attitude and potential to lead the business forward are critical to TOM Organic. In return they provide a 4 day work week and an offering set to grow exponentially over the coming year; so you can be passionate about your job and achieve work life balance.
