Craft Beer Sales Representative - Cape/Islands (SEASONAL TO PERM)
***PLEASE, NO CALLS!***
We are seeking a highly motivated craft beer enthusiast to join our team as a SEASONAL sales representative on Cape Cod and/or Martha's Vineyard and/or Nantucket. You will work alongside our existing Cape/Islands sales representative to provide top notch customer service and sales support in this rapidly growing territory. A successful candidate in this role may have the opportunity to transition to a permanent role - we're very unlikely to let a great person go!
In conjunction with our Sales Manager and our lead Cape & Islands sales rep, you'll work with on-premise and off-premise retail accounts, solicit orders, schedule and execute promotional events, ensure proper stock rotation at our retail accounts, and above all else prioritize customer satisfaction. Basically - you'll work with our team to ensure we have our BEST SUMMER EVER on Cape Cod & The Islands.
PLEASE LIVE IN THE TERRITORY OR EXTREMELY CLOSE. Not having to go over the bridge is a huge plus!
DUTIES & REQUIREMENTS:
Develop account relationships. Demonstrate knowledge of our product portfolio to beer buyers and employees of retail accounts we serve, as well as consumers. Successfully sell and ensure placement of Craft Collective products. Organize and execute floor displays. Represent CC and our brands at samplings/tastings. Respect the beer — treat all product you handle as if it were beer you would be drinking. Communicate in a professional and courteous manner. Follow Craft Collective’s Code of Conduct.
Work schedule is flexible. This can be up to full-time, generally 9-5:00 M-F, with work necessary on some nights and weekends. However, given the unique nature of this seasonal position, part-time employment and/or non-standard hours could be considered for the right candidate. Craft beer sales can be a round-the-clock job, especially in this territory during the summer season. Please be comfortable with that.
Craft beer industry sales experience preferred but not necessary. Must be highly motivated. Access to a vehicle that you are willing to use for business purposes. Must live in the described territory. Ability to lift up to 60 lbs consisting of cases and kegs.
