Background & Objectives
We are looking at developing our own range of high-end papers, and need market intelligence relating to existing products and players and the best routes to market, both nationally and globally. Interesting related study companies of leading paper companies would be ideal.
This range will later be used in a full range of stationery products to sit alongside the likes of Moleskin and Mulberry.
We are looking for ongoing advice/consultation from persons with firsthand market knowledge to guide us in the setup stages. A successful and effective partner has the opportunity to become a full time senior stakeholder in this venture.
Up to date market intelligence and networks are key.
Previous and recent experience in either, or both sales and sourcing of papers, especially for the UK market.
Knowledge of the Japanese market would be a bonus.
Previous employment or involvement with leading UK paper companies would be useful.
The person will be expected to work on-site (Central UK) occasionally, but some of the work can be done remotely as well.
