The brewing company launched in partnership with Bob Hawke is looking to expand its footprint in Melbourne. 

Hawke's Brewing Co, which operates a superb brewery venue in Marrickville, is hiring an experienced sales rep.

JOB DESCRIPTION: Sales Rep – Melbourne

Did you know Bob Hawke's beer-drinking career peaked in Melbourne, regularly downing pints at Carlton’s John Curtin Hotel?

If you'd like to help carry on Bob's legacy in Melbourne by selling beer, and occasionally enjoying a few yourself (after work, of course), Hawke’s Brewing is seeking an experienced, self-driven sales rep to not only lead the Victorian charge for a fast-growing, proudly independent, award-winning Aussie beer company, but also continue its business growth in the state that Bob once called home. To top it off, every beer you sell will help support Hawke’s partnership with Landcare Australia, to which Bob donated all of his royalties as co-founder.

Our core range of brews consists of Hawke’s Lager (2018 AIBA trophy winner and #56 GABS Hottest 100), Hawke’s Patio Pale (2022 AIBA Gold Medal and #27 GABS Hottest 100), Hawke’s Underdog Session Lager (2022 Indies Gold Medal) and new Hawke’s XPA. And, with our world-class brewery in full production mode, we are well placed to deliver additional core and limited release varieties.

As our sales champion in Melbourne, your main focus will be to build distribution and volume in both on and off premise channels, but in particular driving retail distribution in-line with key banner group activity. The role includes building distribution, developing in-store activity, managing tastings, delivering staff training sessions and running events. We’re small but growing quickly, so there will also be opportunities to have your say in broader business strategy and other areas where you can grow with us.

We’re looking for someone proactive, results-focused and of course, bloody like-able (just like Bob). Ideally, you’ll have experience in on and off premise alcohol sales with a positive attitude and ‘customer first’ approach to help you build long-lasting customer mateships. Beer sales experience is an obvious advantage.

We’re offering a competitive base salary, car allowance and performance-related bonus. Remuneration is commensurate with experience. We’ll also work with you to provide opportunities to grow and develop your career at Hawke’s. A current driver's licence and appropriate vehicle, as well as a relevant local RSA certification will be required.

Keen? Then please send a cover letter and your CV and details to jobs@hawkesbrewing.com.

Applications close Friday, June 2, 2023.

About Hawke’s Brewing Co.

Hawke’s Brewing Co. was founded by two mates who had a dream of building an independent Aussie beer company with former Australian Prime Minister, the late Bob Hawke. Bob not only gave the boys a crack but also generously passed on all his royalties to allow the company to support a charity partnership with environmental NPO, Landcare Australia. In just over six years, Hawke’s Brewing Co. has raised more than $420,000 for Landcare Australia, while brewing some delicious, award-winning beer along the way. We run operations out of our brewery in Marrickville, Sydney, with the aim to one day get a cold Hawke’s in the hands of punters in all parts of Australia.
