About Tayto Group

A £250 million privately owned Northern Irish snacking supplier, Tayto Group is the largest British-owned crisp and snack manufacturer, producing over five million packs a day across seven UK sites. They also manufacture an extensive range of private label crisps and snacks for major UK retailers, as well as exporting to every continent.

Tayto Group’s recruitment objectives

Tayto Group required National Account Managers for several of the major retailers it supplies to including Sainsbury’s, Aldi and Tesco, as well as a Senior Account Controller for Scotland. The brief was clear, particularly when it came to the traits and experience Tayto Group expected from its candidates, including specific customer experience with the specified retailers.

How FMCG Selection helped

With a clear but precise brief, this gave us a clear focus on identifying the best talent for the roles. For example, the Tesco National Account Manager position required an upcoming candidate based locally to the business with a strong character plus brand and private label experience. FMCG Selection worked hard and smart in Scotland to build relevant networks in order to recruit for the senior position.

The outcome

FMCG Selection successfully placed all four roles and they all remain within the business. We have a strong relationship with Tayto Group built on trust and we look forward to supporting them with their ongoing recruitment.

What a successfully placed candidate has to say about FMCG Selection

Aidan’s knowledge of the company and its culture was excellent. He painted a detailed picture for me at all levels which was vital in my decision making process and now I’m on board can see to be highly accurate. His communication and support throughout the process was key to me securing the role. Aidan was a pleasure to deal with and a real asset to FMCG Selection.
