We are growing our team and have a Sales Executive role to fill. Please see the job description below and if this floats your boat email firstname.lastname@example.org with a covering letter and your C.V.
Serious Pig is a premium snack brand obsessed with satisfying the most discerning of tastes. We obsess over the quality, taste and texture of our products and have been doing so since 2010.
Serious Pig can be found in some seriously good stockists from passionate independent pubs, taprooms, farm shops and delis to iconic retailers such as Fortnum & Mason, destination pubs like Heston Blumenthal’s Hinds Head in Bray and progressive pub and bar groups like BrewDog.
Serious Pig is rapidly expanding with new products just around the corner and an ever growing army of fans joining Club Seriously (yes it’s a real thing!). To support this exciting time we are on the lookout for the right people to join our growing team. The right attitude wins over qualifications with us, along with a desire to just get shit done. A genuine interest in the craft food and beer world is essential.
