Have you ever admired a business that in a few short years has gone from start-up to huge success? Have you ever thought - wow, I wish I’d had a chance to join that company at the start, and be a key part of their success?

Now is your chance!

We are working with a young and rapidly growing producer of locally distilled Scottish spirits - initially focussing on the Gin market. They are looking to appoint their first Business Development Manager, someone who will be a linchpin in the next stage of the growth of the business.

What’s in it for you:

  • An opportunity to get in at the ground floor;
  • The chance to really spread your wings and make an impact;
  • Be free of corporate bureaucracy, micro-management and endless internal meetings;
  • An opportunity to flex your creative flair, uninhibited by a culture of "that’s how we’ve always done it";
  • A very competitive basic salary and generous commission scheme;
  • Work with great people sharing a common goal and a spirit of teamwork and co-operation.

What we expect from you:

  • You’ll need to be a seasoned Business Development professional with a proven track record in the spirits (or associated) sector;
  • You’ll have an extensive network of contacts that you can leverage to gain early traction;
  • Be highly driven, target-oriented and possess a high degree of self-discipline;
  • Be a people-person, creating a positive impression with every engagement;
  • Be creative in identifying ways to promote the brand and grow market share.

If you’d like to find out more please drop us a line and we can arrange to have an informal but confidential chat to establish if there might be a good fit.
