Sales Person to sell uncommonly good beer 

Start in March 2020

Introducing Round Corner and the sales opportunity

Round Corner Brewing, based in the UK’s rural capital of food, Melton Mowbray (home of pork pies, Stilton cheese and now Round Corner beer), is growing strongly by volume of beer sold and by quality as measured by International beer awards won and repeat business from venues we support. 


Most importantly of all, we are growing the number of people who love our beer and want to drink more of it.

We want to double down on this and are looking to supplement our already strong sales team with an experienced sales person to place our uncommonly good beer into more of the very best pubs, wholesalers, retailers and online outlets across the UK.  Once in place, the same person will ensure those beers sell well for the customer and leave them immediately wanting a deeper relationship with us.


What are we looking for from you?


  1. Sales experience with a start up drinks business (craft beer, soft drinks or spirits) and a track record of making their sales fly (including volumes, margins and brand building)

  2. Being target driven, while also ensuring service standards and a customer-centred culture, delivering superb re-order rates and customer satisfaction.

  3. A ‘can do’ positive attitude and boundless energy dedicated to all beer but in particular to selling Round Corner beer. 

  4. Understanding how our beer will fuel our customers’ businesses and a genuine knack for linking their success and ours through strong internal reporting and matching of products to customers. 


What defines success?


You will be judged by sales revenues, market reception for our beer and account retention / repeat business of the accounts you win.  In addition, as a small business, you will be expected to impact on all areas of our business including occasionally ‘mucking in’ on operational (brewing and logistics), marketing and other selling challenges and opportunities that come Round Corner’s way.   

What can you expect from us?

As a small but ambitious business, you will have a disproportionate impact on Round Corner’s future including what beers we make, who we sell to and at what price, and ultimately what direction we take the business in. 


For the right person, this represents a unique opportunity to join a brewery with one of the most quality driven teams in the world (come see us and check out for yourself).  We have a strong and growing brand and a bustling 1000 year old market home, which is the rock on which our beer and expanding community is built upon.  


We offer a competitive salary and performance related bonus structure, as results are our only measure.  This is the opportunity of a lifetime for the right person to join Round Corner at a point where the product is proven.  This is your moment to shine in helping sell it.



If above sounds like you, contact Combie today on  or call 07585792494 to talk about joining us at Round Corner Brewing.

It’s an exciting opportunity for an ambitious, hard-working and detail-oriented person to shape how our brewery succeeds in its relationships with customers and peers.


Your primary responsibility would be to raise our profile in the market and ensure food and drink lovers flock to our home and help our operations and sales team to get beer into the market. This is a big job for a big personality who is comfortable working in a hard charging team.  Your success will be judged by contribution to revenue and profitability.

  • Must love beer and food in a way that others find infectious;

  • Detail-oriented – as strong on financial planning and profit making as they are on beer and customer relationships;

  • Beer, pub, food, retail experience desirable, but it’s the attitude, vision and work ethic, not the miles on the clock, that will make the successful candidate stand out.

  • Must have a full clean drivers license as mobility is critical.

How success is measured?

  • Sales and profits from activities and on and off market events the co-ordinator owns and delivers.

  • Visitor numbers to site at an agreed level, spend per user and visit time.  Mix of first timers but also repeat business;

  • The opportunity to be a cornerstone of one of the region’s most exciting new businesses and beer's most exciting new entrant and to help us build an iconic regional champion from the ground up;

  • The opportunity for genuine influence and perspective over the core performance, direction future of the business that only a start-up can offer;

  • Competitive salary, benefits and bonuses – commensurate with your experience;

  • The chance to work with a brewing icon and an expert sales and brewery team and grow as we do;
