Founded in 1875, Wadworth & Co Ltd boasts an enviable tradition in the brewing of fine beers coupled with an excellent estate of both tenanted and managed houses.  Our tenanted estate comprises over 200 pubs located in some of the most beautiful parts of the South of England. 


We have decided to restructure the support given to our licensees and, consequently, a vacancy has arisen for an additional Licensee Business Development Manager.

The successful candidate should be forward thinking and demonstrate the ability to introduce new initiatives; they will have a team player’s “can do” attitude with the ability and desire to get the job done.  Energy and communication are key attributes to achieving in this role.  A good understanding of the tenanted trade environment is fundamental to the role and knowledge of the ‘Wadworthshire’ geographical area would be desirable.

Excellent computer skills are essential (Word, Excel, Powerpoint and Outlook) as is a full clean UK driver’s licence

In return we offer a competitive salary; Company car; profit share bonus; pension scheme; life assurance and brewery allowance.
