his role is a fantastic opportunity to get into the commercial team at Bounce and develop into a NAM. You will play a pivotal role in supporting the National Account Managers (NAMs) on some of our strategic Grocery customers. You will be exposed to all areas of the sales process from liaising with buyers to crunching numbers to understand the trends within EPOS.

You will most likely be working as a Commercial Exec looking for development in your next role.

We need someone who likes a challenge and wants to create a role and make it their own.

Bounce was created to inspire positive change in the way people eat, think, and live. We believe this starts from within, by giving our bodies’ sustainable energy that comes from high-quality ingredients that nourish and satisfy. We’re passionate about providing active, positive people with delightfully healthy snacks that are delicious and convenient. Bounce disrupts the energy bar space by encouraging people to ‘have a ball’ instead: protein-packed energy balls that are scrumptious, nutritious, and will keep you going for longer.

What started out in a coastal town of Australia has since expanded to the UK, Europe, Canada, and most recently to the USA.

  • Personal Leadership – You will be a self-starter who passionately tackles the big challenges of both targets and your own development.

  • Change Agility – You will embrace change, strive for improvements and adapt to different situations, processes and roles quickly.
  • Collaboration – You will be personable and engaging, with a desire and ability to work effectively across teams and functions both internally and externally.
