Job Description

International Technical Account Manager – Food Physics Limited – Home/Field Based – c£40,000-50,000 p.a. plus car allowance and benefits

Food Physics Limited are the sole provider of Elea Pulsed Electric Field Systems (PEF) to the food, beverage and scientific sectors in North America, UK and Ireland.

PEF changes the physical structure of fresh produce resulting in significant increases in yield, freshness, flavour and nutritional preservation, plus savings in time and energy.

We are now seeking an energetic, ambitious and talented person to join our specialist team, with our Head Office based in Essex, although you will be home/field based with extensive travel throughout the USA and UK.

You will need sales skills, as this is a sales function, but you will also have a food science or science based degree or similar, and be able to show initiative in solving technical problems, with an ability to trouble shoot and develop ideas. You will have a food technical background with experience of working within the food factory environment. This is essential, as you must be able to understand the technical applications of the PEF product to the various manufacturing industries and able to create compelling selling stories for customers.

You will initiate and implement Food Physics Limited’s commercial strategy to source and develop new business working closely with clients in the food industry, specifically the Dairy, Liquids and Fermentation markets, by highlighting the benefits of this technology to them, and how the PEF process can be integrated easily and efficiently into the manufacturing process.

You will need to be free to travel and work for periods of time in the USA, as well as the UK/Ireland introducing the PEF system to manufacturers. We will provide the relevant work VISA for the American opportunity. This is a fantastic opportunity for the right candidate, who must be a strong communicator with the ability to present across a wide range of customer contacts.

We will also send you to Germany to take a qualification so that you are fully conversant with the PEF process. Due to the quantity of travel involved, you may at times be away over the weekend.

This will be a demanding but very interesting role, and you will require high energy levels and be fully committed and passionate about the business, which is family run. We want someone who is keen to roll up their sleeves and get involved and be at the forefront of this ground breaking technology by introducing and selling Food Physics and the PEF process to the USA/UK.
