Our client is a disruptive, multi-award-winning business with a focus on spirit drinks. Alongside running a distribution agency and owning a portfolio of best-in-category spirit drinks, they operate the UK’s premier spirit drinks retail website. Turnover in their most recent financial year was comfortably in excess of £20m and they’re growing aggressively year-on-year.

About the Excise Compliance Manager:

Our client are looking for an energetic, confident and intelligent professional to join their growing Compliance team (which sounds like the ugly step-sister of a rock ’n’ roll business but which categorically isn’t). They want an innovative, cool-headed team-player with irrepressible hustle.

The ideal candidate will be intimately familiar with United Kingdom excise duty management and control systems, in particular with the excise duty applicable to spirit drinks, and will have played a leading role in the management of excise warehouses. But don’t let them put you off if a managerial role remains an aspiration at present - if you’re smart and ambitious, we should talk. Our client have a track record of creating rather than hiring management talent, and they recognise that The Right Stuff can be just as important as the CV.

The work of the team is important and taken seriously. Our client want you for your experience and your acumen, and you’ll be enfranchised, supported and resourced so that you can deliver. Your input will help to defend them against the consequences of regulatory lapse, but even more important will be ensuring that their excise-related authorisations never lag behind our business needs or constrain their operations.
