Business Development Executive 

Our company is the number one selling coconut water in the United Kingdom and the United States. We are now a house hold name and have a particular following in popular culture with professional athletes, celebrities, musicians paving the way in fandom. Since launching in 2010 we have seen rapid growth and still have big plans ahead…

Despite our expansion we still remain firmly grounded in our goals; to provide natural hydration and functional benefits through our products. Recently, we launched our Give, Grow, Guide philosophy in order to raise 1 million people in coconut farming communities out of poverty. 

As I’m sure you can tell already, we are coco-nutty for our company and are looking for someone equally passionate to join the fastest growing non-alcoholic drinks brand in the UK!
