About The Business: 

With a revolutionary product line that transformed one of the most flat line categories in the UK market, this business has been a breath of fresh air over the last 10 years and they're not letting up when it comes to innovation and branching out into new categories. With sales hovering at £15m, a doubling of sales and head count in less than 3 years, this business is full of life and they want you to join in on the fun. 

The business was bought in 2015 by one of the most respected chilled drinks manufacturers in Europe - the new leadership team has left the brand to build and they've offered their advise when needed but have not imposed an "autocratic" style. This has allowed the business and team to flourish and most employees have received promotions and are moving forward with their careers. 

The culture is one to be admired - with a team of 15 in trendy Central London offices, they enjoy working with a supportive and ambitious team to reach their personal and team goals. If you're up for a challenge and want to offer value to a company that wants variety, then please read below.
