Benefits: Up to 15% bonus, Company Car, Pension Scheme and Health Plan, Mobile Phone & Tablet

Further to Elevate’s continued success with Westside Drinks, an innovative brand owner and distributor of UK and imported beers and ciders, we are seeking to recruit an FSE to build on the existing territory structure and to help drive presence and distribution on behalf of our client.  Westside Drinks, whose portfolio includes among others, Frontier, Sierra Nevada, Cornish Orchards, Alhambra, Veltins and Chimay, is a premium division of Fuller’s, famous for its brewery and beers since 1845.

This role will involve working in a results driven environment  within the On-Trade and the exciting Craft Beer market. You will be responsible for promoting an exceptional portfolio of cutting edge, ‘best in class’ craft beers and premium ciders into Free Trade outlets. You will ideally be Nottingham/ Leicester based or within easy access, with responsibility for covering the East Midlands but including Birmingham, Northampton & Lincoln areas.

You will have responsibility for winning, developing and maintaining relationships with those accounts on territory, influencing decision makers to increase distribution of the Westside drinks brands and working closely with National & Local Route to Market Wholesalers to supply Draught & Packaged products

Ideally degree educated and with recent sales or relevant On-Trade experience (e.g Bar Manager or Staff, General Manager) and seeking the opportunity to work within a sector delivering new and established brands to market, this opportunity could deliver the challenge that you are looking for.

Can you demonstrate the characteristics and aptitude required to plan, manage and structure your working day?  Do you have the ability to communicate and influence at a variety of levels and have the drive and determination to succeed alongside a focussed work ethic?  If you believe that you have the right skills for this role, we would like to hear from you.

The hours of work reflect the nature of this role and whilst your core hours will be 37.5 hours per week, we are looking for an individual who has the flexibility to work hours appropriate for the job role and the On-Trade sector.
It is a requirement of this role that you hold a full, clean driving licence.  Full training and induction will be given to the successful candidate.

If you are interested in being considered for this position, please send a c.v. and covering letter with current salary to recruit@elevate.uk.com. Interviews will be held locally.

Closing date:    Friday 27th October 2017
