Founded in 2017, my client started the brand because water, whilst keeping us alive, just doesn'tm get our pules racing and the only thing you can find in shops to spice it up is artificially sweetened or full of sugar. That's just not their style. So they quit their jobs at one of the biggest names in FMCG and went off on their journey to reinvigorate a stagnant market. Fast forward to today and they're growing bugger by the day and you now have the chance to be a part of that vision.


You can find them in Sainsbury's, Ocado, Whole Foods and leading independents all around the UK, but they're not slowing down there. They want an Operations sueprstar to help grow the business and ensure that everything from the production to logicstics and customer orders run smoothly.

towards together

- Building forecasts for all ingredients and packaging in collaboration with our
suppliers
- Booking in and processing customer orders
- Improving efficiency of logistics
- Working with manufacturer to improve quality & efficiency of production
- Plus all of the daily challenges that being part of a startup can throw at you

What we're looking for:

- Experience in managing supply, forecasting, and customer orders
- Someone who is agile and able to think on their feet. We're a startup, our
business can change week-to-week
- An excellent problem solver with an analytical head
- A self starter who enjoys finding ways to improve how we do things and takes
the initiative

- Ideally trained in a SME food & drink brand
