The business also has a B2C website selling fresh Scotch meat and fish, primarily to UK customers with production onsite and delivery by courier.

The website has seen significant growth since the start of the coronavirus crisis. Following recent investments in manufacturing and customer service capacity, the business is seeking further rapid growth of this business unit and is seeking to recruit a talented Head of Ecommerce to lead this.

They will also work closely with the customer service, production and technical teams to ensure that the business is structured to support rapid and sustainable growth, targeting three times its current run rate within 18 months.

We are seeking commercially minded, data-driven and experienced ecommerce specialists who have experience within a fast paced, entrepreneurial high growth business. Candidates will have a strong understanding of marketing and brand positioning and be able to demonstrate knowledge of website marketing and maintenance, ideally within the food or FMCG sectors, although we are able to consider candidates from adjacent markets who have relevant skills and experience.
