An appetising opportunity
There’s never been a better time to join our New Business Development team. Primark is stronger than ever, and our city‐centre Head Office is a dynamic space where you can play your part in shaping and expanding our food and beverage offering. You’ll be identifying, researching and developing new products that our customers can’t live without. And maximising our opportunities for continuing to grow as a business.
Life in New Business Development
Do you have a solid background in Food & Beverage? Maybe you’ve already got several years of commercial retail experience in the bag? This is your opportunity to grow not just your career but our entire business. Developing and improving our products, from business plans and pricing, right up to the marketing strategy.
In a competitive industry, we’re the growing business you can’t hold back. Supporting our growth, it’ll be your job to identify key decision makers and influencers within the marketplace. Keeping on top of the competition and industry will be vital to generating new business and products that customers will love.
What we’re looking for
An experienced candidate with a background in food & beverage who can deliver a strategic plan for growth that will develop and improve our current product offering in stores.
Some of your key responsibilities would include:
Building relationships. This could be with either new or existing business partners in order to maximise our revenue streams. It could also be with Procurement and Legal, for when you need assistance negotiating new commercial agreements.
Identifying opportunities. This means networking with key decision makers and influencers to identify and anticipate new trends that could generate business. You’ll work closely with the Director of New Business Development to recommend and implement an action plan.
Representing the business. We’ll look to you to represent us to potential partners all around the world, so some international travel may be required. You’ll also take ownership of customer issues and use your initiative to solve them.
Communication skills. Bring your integrity, diplomacy, tact and professionalism to negotiate new commercial agreements and manage sensitive matters. You’ll provide support to cross-functional teams in the development of budgets as well as business, product, pricing and marketing plans.
Why work with us?
At Primark, we know how hard everyone works to achieve our business goals. Having a competitive salary and annual bonus scheme is our way of acknowledging this. We'll also provide you with a progressive career path, because clear advancement is what we’re all about at Primark. We’re always open when talking about your development and we offer lots of training – whether it’s inhouse or sending you on courses. We’re big believers in rewarding hard work, which is easier to achieve with our teams being so close and forever willing to help out.
There’s a lively culture here, and it’s easy to get to know each other in a truly warm atmosphere. A buzzing hub of activity, our Dublin Head Office is an innovatively designed space above the original Penney’s store – so you can see the results of your hard work flying off the shelves for yourself. And we offer relocation support to ensure that you settle into your new home/environment.
Flexible working means you can use your time effectively and plan around your schedule. Plus, we’re well equipped for a healthy lifestyle with our own café, canteen, and gym.
Can you bring your commercial awareness, passion for food and beverage, and ability to lead and influence to help improve and expand our products in new and exciting ways? Join us in New Business Development at our Dublin head office.
