With brands such as Menabrea, Magners and Orchard Pig, it’s hard to not get behind and understand why we have such a big stake in the market! We are in the process of strengthening our brand team through the appointment of a number of Brand Sales Executives across England & Wales to ensure that we continue to thrive in the hospitality industry.
About the role
This is a great role if you are wanting to kick start your career within Sales in the hospitality and drinks industry. As the face of our brands, you will be responsible for not only developing, but identifying and signing up new customers to showcase our drinks portfolio. You will also work alongside our sales teams to put in place deals, brand support and training,making sure that everything works for both the customer and our business. Working with the marketing team is also key in this role, assisting with planning and executing customer and consumer events to generate brand awareness.
Why is this a great opportunity?
“This is a really exciting opportunity for a result orientated person with a passion for the hospitality sector and a love of brands. C&C is a dynamic company that’s really going places and this new Brand Sales Exec role will be critical in delivering our ambitious brand growth plans. It’s a really vibrant and varied job – one minute you’re selling in Orchard Pig to a pub owner, the next you’re doing Tito’s cocktail training with a team of bar tenders, the next you’re running a Menabrea Moment sampling an activation event. Come and join our friendly team and the career opportunities are endless.” Chris Hewin, Head of Channel Strategy
What you'll be doing
