Leap Beer: When you go to the bar intending to have just one beer and end up drinking four. e.g. Fred looks up from his empty glass to see his best pal walk in, "I guess this is gonna be a Leap Beer."
Head Brewer Position - Eagle Brewing NZ
Eagle Brewing NZ is a growing micro brewery based in Christchurch Canterbury. We produce a wide range of beer styles and have recently started to delve into sour, aged and barrel aged beers. We are currently investigating opportunities for brewery expansion over the next few years to allow increased production to meet demand.
We self distribute nationally in NZ; do most of our own sales work and have recently invested in a small packaging line onsite.
We are now looking for a head brewer with a minimum of 12 months experience in brewing commercially to join our small team and help us grow to the next level and beyond. The position is full time with overall responsibility for meeting current and future demands as our sales continue to grow.
Maintaining inventory of raw materials and finished product, continuous improvement of current range and development of new diverse beers is also part of the role. We envisage a long term position so NZ residency or citizenship is preferred with possible benefits being offered for long term commitment to being part of our future for the right person.
The brewery is very manual with little automation so the applicant must be physically fit and have no existing medical condition which will impede his or her ability to carry out their duties. Basic knowledge of brewery glycol systems, mechanical and electrical maintenance plus a current alcohol managers license is an advantage.
A valid driving license for manual vehicles and an F classification is desired.
The position is vacant now with a starting date as soon as practically possible.
Remuneration is negotiable.
All applications should be sent by email to firstname.lastname@example.org or posted to Eagle Brewing NZ, PO BOX 8359, Riccarton Christchurch 8440. Closing date is Friday 17th February 2017.
