Full Job Description

Igennus Healthcare Nutrition is a fast-growth family-run nutrition company based in Cambridge. We now require a smart, rounded, dynamic and inquisitive individual who is commercially astute and confident to join our Amazon Commercial team. We are looking for A-players at this important time of growth in the business, and ecommerce experience would be an advantage. We are also selecting based on competence, commercial skill and personality; if you bring previous Amazon experience, you’ll be trained in our in-house approach to account management and receive nutrition training. A learning mindset with a questioning and open mind is vital. Fluent French, German, Italian or Spanish is an added bonus. This role would be a suitable next step for someone previously working in ecommerce in-house or perhaps an agency role.

The account executive role entails very hands-on aspects of ecommerce, paid search marketing, marketing communications and sales (pricing, promotions & vendor relationships), as well as working alongside colleagues managing inventory & stock replenishment and customer service. This role suits individuals who enjoy a broad range of activities, willing to work autonomously at times, but also working closely with colleagues in content and communications.

The role

As Amazon Account Executive, you will support the Account Account Managers to grow the USA, UK and EU markets, as well as emerging markets. Training will be provided and ongoing commercial coaching is an integral part of how we work.

  • Implementing the marketing support plan for each market. This includes executing promotional plans, factoring profitability, stock levels, deal type suitability, and evaluating promotional performance.
  • Managing SEO activity. Developing an SEO roadmap with the Account Managers and implementing this with the content team to ensure we drive relevant purchase-ready traffic to our listings that convert. Ongoing evaluation of search term suitability, conversion rates and growth potential.
  • Managing paid search activity, according to set metrics. keeping up-to-date with new ad types, continually testing suitability for products across the range.
  • Conversion optimisation: working alongside the content team and external freelancers to maintain, evaluate and improve the conversion of our product listings through informative nutrition content. Whether it’s via compelling copywriting, infographics, video or photography, we have a range of tools at your disposal, to maximise the potential of the product detail page.
  • Utilising data to support portfolio management: supporting the Account Managers to coordinate activities and resources that support optimal growth of our product listings through an understanding of the product lifecycle, sales potential and profitability. Requires developing in-depth understanding of the product range, market positioning and customer segmentation. Also requires maintaining accurate financial reporting and providing analyses to colleagues; analysing product performance according to set metrics and reporting to the Account Managers; providing recommendations and actionable insights to drive continued growth of the business.
  • Monitoring competitor activity and consumer trends to ensure that the products compete in terms of pricing and performance.

Who you are

The successful candidate is a lifelong learner, who loves data, but equally loves turning data into actionable insights and initiating appropriate actions and tasks across multi-functional teams.

Prior experience of Amazon is not vital, since this industry changes rapidly. Succeeding in this role does require a hands-on attitude, digging into various report types and making sense of lots of different types of data, lots of testing, trial and error, and all backed with a commercial but flexible mindset to succeed in this entrepreneurial environment. A strong level of confidence is a must – but with a learning mindset, thriving on experimentation, change and a keenness for data. Personality is key – the company is looking for down to earth, inquisitive, resourceful people who will fit into the company culture, in which intelligent, thoughtful self-starters thrive.

Desired skills and competencies:

  • Enthusiasm for accumulating knowledge and applying it
  • Excellent numerical and communication skills
  • Experience in managing projects and working across teams
  • Confident, organised, adaptable and entrepreneurial
  • Educated to degree level - ideally in business, finance, marketing or communications
  • An interest in health and nutrition as in-depth understanding of the product range is required; training will be provided by our in-house nutritionists

What we offer

  • A friendly, supportive and enjoyable office environment where individuals are encouraged to contribute ideas and be entrepreneurial
  • Hybrid office-based and homeworking after training phase is completed
  • The opportunity to apply your skills and make an impact as we strive for continuous learning and improvement
  • Working alongside other motivated and intelligent people who care about what we do and the products and services we provide
  • Creative and challenging projects and cross-team working

Your application

Please outline in a covering letter why you are an A-player who will add value to our business, and whether you bring relevant Amazon experience, and why you possess the skills to make you succeed in this role after on-the-job training.
