Entry Jobs In The Drinks Industry

beerThe drinks industry is a great place for a new graduate or motivated school-leaver to get a solid foot on the career ladder. A market that’s growing both on home shores and abroad, the drinks industry offers excellent possibilities for the right candidates to develop and secure a great future. From an employer’s point of view, taking junior and entry-level recruits on board means you can mold those recruits into your way of thinking without having to fight against pre-conceived ideas or practices.

No matter whether you’re seeking employment in, or recruiting for entry, or junior level jobs in the drinks industry, the range of opportunities is extensive. Typical jobs might involve working at the raw material end of the scale or at the front end. Either way, starting out positions might mean being front of house in a serving or junior management role, or working behind the scenes in one of the many drinks production plants throughout Europe. No matter which path you choose, or your business is involved in, there are significant career options for the right people.

With a growing range of alcoholic and non-alcoholic drinks already on and coming to the market, it’s not surprising that young, talented and driven candidates are keen to join this sector. Intrinsically linked with trends and fashions, both alcoholic and alcohol-free drink branding and marketing are exciting environments where there is space for everyone from young people with few qualifications to graduates with first class degrees. Anticipated annual income ranges from around £15k pa for bar staff, up to as much as £25k pa for a junior account manager or engineer.

From serving roles through to account management and even engineering positions, the drinks industry has a whole host of obvious, and some not so obvious possibilities when it comes to recruitment. At The Carling Partnership, we’re involved particularly in the search and selection Senior Executives to Graduate roles, working for both globally recognised companies to burgeoning craft breweries. Our focus is on the Supply Chain, Operations, Technical, Engineering and Packaging functions., which means that we’re perfectly positioned to find you, the right candidate the right position; and you, the employer, the right recruit.
