A CAREER IN P&G'S SALES FUNCTION
Sales is an organization within P&G that is responsible for managing the P&G business and our relationships with Canada's largest retailers. When you join the Sales function at P&G, you hit the ground running. Utilizing proprietary research, industry & brand understanding, and real data, you will create and present your own business plans to your customer, then execute your plan through managing a multi-million dollar budget.
As an Account Manager, you do more than "sell". You become a strategy consultant, working with the largest retailers on the biggest brands in Canada. This work will directly impact shelving assortment, product showcases, and in-store marketing at your retailer. You get the satisfaction of seeing their work come to life in the Canadian market, and perhaps beyond. The result is that you grow both P&G's business and the business of your retailer(s).

But most importantly, you're a person who values teamwork, capitalizes on opportunities and maintains a passion for winning.
