Non Executive Director
Looking for something that's going to keep you busy without filling your week? Finest Things Italian is a franchise opportunity covering the UK and Ireland which offers sales, marketing and promotional support to a range of different businesses based on the design and style of Italy. At our core we have a select group of Italian brands with whom we cooperate to enhance their brand value within the UK.
Whether through marketing, promotions or direct sales initiatives we offer our members new channels to communicate with their ideal consumer audience. Our UK structure is split by regions and we aim to maximise the capability of our regional Business Development Managers by providing suitably qualified mentors who will act as Non Executive Directors or perhaps Non Executive Chair of the individual regional franchise businesses. The time commitment is likely to be 2-3 days monthly with some time spent in direct contact and some in remote telephone support of the local Business Development Manager.
We are looking for experienced people with great local contact networks who can provide the company with introductions to local businesses as well as a mentor support service to develop, encourage and guide the local manager. You will enjoy creating and developing the business contacts for the region and the social aspects of meeting with the people involved. You will also be motivated by the opportunity to introduce great promotions and added value to the businesses you are in contact with.
We have a flexible approach to remuneration ranging from a fixed monthly salary from £500 for the basic position through to specific fee assignments paying up to £7,500 on completion of certain tasks. If you can be passionate about the things that make Italy special from food to fashion to motor cars and motorbikes through wine and watches to holidays in the sun then we would like to chat about the possibilities. Initial training includes a two day trip to Tuscany, so occasional overseas travel is part of the opportunity.
