The In Thing has recently secured substantial investment via pocket money toy manufacturer, Dracco, which currently works outside of the UK with some key toy distribution companies such as Simba, Topps, Giochi Preziosi. The new partnership opens up huge potential within the UK to mirror the substantial success of Dracco’s products within Europe and beyond.

The new national account manager will work with a Hong Kong-based R&D department and will be in charge of launching new ranges into the UK.

The successful candidate will identify, develop and implement a long-term business strategy for their accounts in order to improve market share, turnover, profitability, as well as supporting more junior members of the internal team.

Previous toy experience is preferred but applicants must currently manage national High Street or grocery retailers, ideally including FOB sales. What is more important, however, is that candidates can demonstrate a successful track record of growth, based on strategic predictions and joint business plans.

The In Thing requires a professional individual who is a keen team player and self motivated. The successful candidate will be responsible for a portfolio of high profile key accounts

Excellent interpersonal skills are required, particularly in terms of persuasion, negotiation and relationship brokering. Candidates must also be able to plan and organise effectively.

The new recruit will more than likely be required to spend a minimum of two days per week in the Lancashire-based office.

In return, the firm can offer the right candidate a unique position within a vibrant working environment.
