Food ingredient sales professionals sell products related to food and food production and provide customer service as representatives of their companies. Their jobs can vary from selling food equipment to products such as ingredients and flavourings. The work of a food ingredient sales representative is very similar to that of other sales representatives. However, your potential clients could be dispersed across a rural area. You'll demonstrate new products, equipment or services developed by your employer and persuade existing clients to consider using them.

Essex is diverse; from rural villages, market towns, New Towns, urban centres, to the popular coastline. Towns seeing the biggest area of development and growth in job markets are Colchester, Chelmsford, Basildon and Harlow. The country has opportunity for economic and housing growth throughout the County, via two recognised growth corridors – London Stansted Cambridge, and the Thames Gateway, and a new emerging one in North Essex. These connect across Essex, and with key routes and wider economic opportunities throughout London and the South East.
