The position

As part of a global growth strategy within consumer brands sales, the position as Consumer Brands Business Manager is recruited in six countries simultaneously. In Sweden, a renewed contract with Unilever forms the foundation to approach new target groups and perform structured sales actions.

The consumer brands business idea is that Diversey’s clients are given the opportunity to use the Unilever cleaning and hygiene products professionally, either as part of their end consumer offering (for example hotels and restaurants) or within their own organisation. The ambitious plan for the category involves growing the sales to new clusters of clients, primarily SME companies that recognise and rely upon well-known consumer brands. In a broader perspective, all current Diversey client interaction involves an opportunity to expand the consumer brands business.

Until now, the consumer brands business has performed well also without cohesive strategic or operational steering. Therefore, in the new position as Consumer Brands Business Manager, an important part will be to thoroughly analyse the current situation, create a concept around the products and set up plans both in the long and short term to expand the business in the coming years.

Representing the consumer brands business team, the Consumer Brands Business Manager interacts throughout the organisation at all levels. You report to Country Director Sweden, with a dotted line to Diversey European HQ in the Netherlands. You are part of the Swedish management team and will be part of the newly formed Consumer Brands Business Team.
