New Amsterdam Vodka is a premium vodka made from the finest quality grains, distilled five times for unparalleled smoothness and filtered three times to create a soft finish. We've recently sold more than one million cases of New Amsterdam Vodka in our first 12 months in the USA, making it the fastest spirits brand in history to do so. New Amsterdam has gained acclaim among industry insiders and consumers alike, enabling the brand to grow at a rapid pace in the USA as well as in the UK.

So what actually is a Brand Specialist? Glad you asked, well your fun but challenging task is to raise awareness and drive sales of both New Amsterdam Vodka and E&J Brandy in the on-trade channel (bars, pubs, restaurants, and nightclubs). Driving sales volume, brand presence and availability, you will also be responsible for key promotional activity and trade support with key accounts. Your responsibilities will be varied from new customer visits to point of sale merchandising, hosting tasting events, to driving growth via trade days and the occasional crew-drive on a national basis.

Your ability to communicate and build influence quickly with new and existing customers will be pivotal to your success so we're looking for amazing relationship builders. Educated to degree level or equivalent you must be passionate and outgoing ideally with some sales exposure, on trade sales experience or bar experience. We will also consider non-graduates with up to 4 years sales experience in a related industry. Motivated to over-achieve targets, you will have a commercial brain and previous experience working with drinks brands would be very interesting!

**This role mainly covers London to Bristol and the area in between. Being based (or willing to relocate) in or around the M4 Corridor would be ideal (Reading, Oxford, Swindon).

**A full, clean driving licence is also a prerequisite for this role
