Brewers Guild of NZ


  • The voice of beer and New Zealand’s brewing industry
  • Advocacy, stakeholder relations and media engagement
  • Lead a national membership organisation
  • 32 – 40 hours a week, location flexible


The Brewers Guild of New Zealand is the voice of New Zealand’s brewing industry with a mission to grow the value and quality of the New Zealand beer sector by advocating for our members through promotion, education, advocacy and events.

Our members include the smallest as well as the largest breweries in New Zealand and represent over 160 breweries located throughout the country.

We’re looking for a smart, energetic and experienced Executive Director to transform our volunteer-run organisation into a high-performing, high-value industry organisation representing beer and the brewing industry.

This is a new role and requires a dynamic individual who can lead the implementation of the Guild’s strategy, take responsibility for the delivery of member services, identify and develop new revenue opportunities, oversee the smooth running of events and be the face of the Guild with media and other key stakeholders.

You will need to be able to develop advocacy and promotion strategies based on a good understanding of key industry issues and build strong relationships within the industry and the broader alcohol beverage and hospitality industries, mainstream and beer media, government officials, industry groups and other players in the wider industry.

You will also know what it takes to drive member benefit, generate income, engage on behalf of the industry and develop high-value partnerships. 

Social responsibility is at the heart of everything we do, so you will need to have an acute awareness of the impacts, both positive and negative, of alcohol in contemporary New Zealand.
