Marketing Manager - Food

Location: Sydney, New South Wales
Job Type: Permanent / Full Time
Contact: Ivor Lloyd-Rees

Six Degrees Executive are delighted to be exclusively partnering with a Global food business on a key Marketing leadership role based in Sydney. This is not for the faint-hearted, it's a big role and requires one of Australia's most commercial Marketing Managers to lead an innovative portfolio into the new Financial Year.

A few things to know; this company is huge, they have navigated Covid-19 really well and they are primed to have an exciting year ahead. There is a huge regional element to this role, liaising with counterparts globally to find what works in the regions and how this will impact your portfolio. If you have a taste for International expansion or have had some sort of International FMCG experience this could be the role you have been looking for. In fact, let's take that one step further; If you have aspirations to work globally and want to truly understand how a global business operates this could be your ideal role. If that last sentence scares you, worth scrolling to the next advert.

Being transparent, this role is not for a Marketing Manager who wants to manage a large team and get their kicks from that. You will be rolling up your sleeves, getting into the trenches and taking aim at the competition with your own weapon, not simply telling others what to do. Junior support on this portfolio is minimal but it's a high profile role and reports directly to the Chief Marketing Officer.

Are you…

  • A proven FMCG Marketing Manager? This role will likely not suit a Senior Brand Manager.
  • Experienced in innovation?
  • Experienced in food?
  • That rare mix of having blue chip experience but have worked in an agile environment (SME or alternative, innovative projects in a Blue Chip)
  • One of the more commercial marketers in your peer group?
  • Experienced with global markets?

With a huge international footprint and market leading brands across a number of categories this organisation is quite unique for a Sydney based FMCG business. They offer excellent flexibility and extensive training and development.

Honestly, if the above is not you then it might not be worth hitting 'apply'. There will likely be better fits out there for you.
