Hogs Back Brewery is a thriving, family-owned business with a loyal customer base and a great reputation in the local area and beyond.
The Brewery Shop, Drive Through and online business is a key revenue and profit generator for the business and has grown considerably in the last 18 months. Building from this base, this is an exciting retail opportunity to make a real impact and take the business to the next level.
This is a diverse and busy role, combining full operational and profit responsibility whilst delivering an exceptional customer experience. In this consumer-facing role, you will have full P&L responsibility, optimise the permanent and seasonal range, develop a high-performing Retail Team and take full responsibility for maintaining the excellent quality of beer sold from the Brewery Shop cellar. As part of the business development, you will identify new growth opportunities and manage their implementation, as well as maximising the Local Delivery proposition, working alongside Marketing & Logistics.
The ideal candidate will have a proven track record in retail management, strong sales and marketing acumen, e-commerce experience, a genuine interest and enthusiasm for the beer market and the ambition to really make a difference in a fast-paced, entrepreneurial environment.
We will also be looking for strong interpersonal skills, organisational and leadership skills, and an ability to roll your sleeves up on a day-to-day basis.
Ideally living within 15-20 minutes of the Brewery, you will normally work 42½ hours over 5 days, which will include some evenings, some weekends and may include Bank Holidays. You will develop two Senior Retail Assistants to be able to delegate some of your responsibilities and will have a rotating team of 6-8 other part-time staff.
Salary will be dependent on level of experience. A bonus scheme will be set against achievement over budget. Contributory pension scheme. 25 days holiday a year.
