This is a game changing role for a Category evangelist working in the PZ Cussons family, to strategically drive the Homecare category to a whole new level! If you're looking for this type of challenge, then we would love to hear from you!


The successful candidate needs to come on board ‘ready to roll’, to shape the category vision and implement it cross-functionally through the Sales, Marketing and NPD teams. Speaking of the team, it’s an awesome one! We have a lot of fun but are passionate to achieve results at the same time.

  •  Be a natural leader - a senior member of the team!
  •  Deliver unforgettable customer range reviews! Do the detailed analysis and planning to support the story.
  • Understand the numbers, the category, the channels, the consumer, the customer - be the EXPERT!
  • Drive the commercial planning process
  • In depth promotional evaluation & strategy (short and long term)
  • Be creative in your market execution ideas
  • Own the Stage and Gate - be the homecare guru!

A bit about us:


With a reputation for excellence and an impressive brand portfolio including Five:am, Rafferty's Garden, Morning Fresh, Radiant and St Tropez, PZ Cussons Australia is a growing success story offering over 600 SKU's to our consumers.

Our Social, Charity, Heath & Well-being committees have been driving regular activities during 'working from home' - such as Yoga classes, Health & Wellness talks, Book Club, Photo Competitions and much more. Volunteer days and quarterly social events such as barefoot bowls are a regular (when restrictions do not apply). Additionally - monthly Staff discounts, Five:am yoghurt fridge (in the office) and half-day Fridays (every week) are some other attractive benefits.

  • You will have significant Category Development experience within the FMCG industry.
  • You will have an understanding of Category Management principles and the ability to articulate and write an integrated category and channel strategy. 
  • You will be a confident presenter with proven communication and negotiation skills.
  • You will also have strong numeracy and analytical skills coupled as well as the ability to build and maintain strong relationships across internal and external stakeholders.
  •  Whilst not essential, an understanding of shelf management systems and processes will help you within this role.
  • Previous account management experience either as an Account Executive or Account Manager would also be advantageous.
