We have an exciting opportunity for an experienced FMCG salesperson to join the team at Nova Tissue as a Field Sales Representative, selling UK-made consumer hygiene products into the wholesale, cash & carry, and multiple retail markets.
Based in Oldham, Greater Manchester, Nova Tissue is a family-run paper converter and manufacturer of toilet tissue and kitchen towel products, supplying the consumer and ‘away from home’ markets across Europe via both online and direct sales. Our new Field Sales Representative will need to work both with the team at our head office and independently to build relationships with target customers who include buyers from retail multiples, wholesalers, discounters, and small supermarkets.
As well as our own brand products, which includes the eco-friendly ‘Soft on Nature’ range, we create bespoke private label ranges that enable customers to sell our toilet tissue and kitchen towel as their own.
We know it’s a bit sad, but we’re really passionate about paper conversion and we really enjoy what we do – and this rubs off on our customers. Because we’ve been in the business of making toilet tissue and kitchen towel for so long, we know what works/sells and what doesn’t when it comes to product, packaging, pack format and branding. Our team of just under 50 staff, from full time engineers and health & safety managers, to machine operators and warehouse assistants, are always looking out for what others in the industry are doing and how we can do it better.
Having now built a strong reputation for ourselves as a leading UK manufacturer, especially following our response to the toilet paper shortages brought about the Covid-19 pandemic when we were interviewed on national television, we are now looking to adapt our well-established business to the ‘new normal’. We need to re-build the ‘away from home’ market sales that were lost due to lockdown restrictions in the hospitality sector, and capitalise on new markets and opportunities that are now emerging. Our new Field Sales Representative will be instrumental in this.
