Are you an experienced Account Manager up for a challenge and help us building our new Sales Department? Then working at Cefetra might be a perfect fit for you!

Our strategy

With roots in the feed industry as a supplier of various proteins, cereals and oilseeds/(veg)oils, the Cefetra Group is looking to expand its portfolio in the coming years thereby transforming into a trader of high-quality ingredients.

Supported by its clear ‘Road to Ingredients’ strategy, the Cefetra Group is actively seeking new growth areas within the food, nutrition and health markets.

For BayWa and Cefetra Group, sustainability is a strong business driver. The United Nations and Bloomberg have selected BayWa as one of “50 Sustainability and Climate Leaders” worldwide for its activities in sustainability and climate protection.

Scope and position

In the past few years ​the research and quant department created a startup within the Cefetra Group company, focusing on creating high quality research for external parties. The team is very passionate about developing products and are looking for a new colleague who has the drive, experience and leverage to bring our team to the next level.

Cefetra is therefore looking for a sales manager who has the unique opportunity to setup sales from scratch, selling our services to external parties. Through our broad network we already have a good understanding who our potential clients are, but we expect you to also actively look for new potential customers.

We therefore give you also the opportunity to travel abroad, visiting potential customers and conferences.

Besides this you will leverage Cefetra’s network, mobilize in-house traders to connect with potential clients and you will be responsible for after sales services to ensure an excellent customer experience.


  • You will set up and execute account plans
  • Create promotional materials together with the team
  • Provide input, guidance & coaching on the growth platforms
  • Prospecting and cold calling
