Contract Type

The Barth Haas group are the world's largest supplier of hops products and services with a number of different divisions supplying various markets. We have been retained by one of these divisions, known as BetaTec, to find a Commercial Director to manage their operations in the UK and Europe. BetaTec are involved in the "alternative" hops market, which is effectively anything that isn't related to the brewery sector.

They are a very forward thinking business and realise that finding the right candidate with a background in their very niche market, is going to be challenging. They are therefore very open minded on the experience of the candidate, as long as that person comes from within the food or pharmaceuticals industry and ideally with some knowledge of B2B.

The Job

Leading and managing their strategy in Europe and ROW, for the alternative uses of Hops products.
Managing the UK team which is based near Worcester, ensuring good team cohesion and internal communications.
Upholding the values of the parent company and ensuring that these form a core part of the overall offering.

The Candidate

Will ideally hold a BSc Degree in a relevant subject and several years of experience in either the food or pharmaceuticals industry.
Outstanding and proven commercial success within your industry and looking to make the next step in your career.
Excellent leadership qualities and experience of managing and motivating a team, you will be able to work closely with your colleagues and ensure you are creating the best possible working environment.
International experience would be a benefit as there is lots of opportunity to travel in this role.

If you feel that this role is of interest and you wish to have a confidential discussion with us, then please get in touch by applying to the link on this advert or alternatively call either Guy Moreton or Morten Andresen on 01780 480530.

We are working with BetaTec as their retained recruiter. Any CV's that are sent to them directly, will be forwarded back to us, in order to see the process through to completion.
