Our mission is to make the most yummy and indulgent treats that can be enjoyed by everyone – even for those with allergies & intolerances, and a plant-based diet.

Over the last 5 years, Livia’s has rapidly grown from being a London centric brand with strong presence in Whole Foods, Planet Organic and Selfridges to becoming a multi-million pound brand in over 4,000 stockists nationwide. And we are only just getting started…
We have only been trading with the major retailers for under 2 years! This is a hugely exciting time to join the business as we continue our rapid growth (+150% YoY) and cement ourselves as a serious challenger brand to the major confectionery brands.
We are an entrepreneurial company who have become known for acting fast and leading the way with innovation. Our team of 14 are dedicated and passionate about our mission. If you could indulge with natural and wholesome ingredients, why wouldn’t you?! We’re on the search for an entrepreneurial and driven go-getter to join us as in Field Sales
at Livia’s to help us achieve our ambitious goals. This role is incredibly exciting for someone who’s hungry to grow the brand and their careers in sales.

This is your opportunity to work autonomously whilst being part of our wider sales team and to make a huge difference
in a company where the sky’s the limit. Livia’s is the future of confectionery!
