EXPIRY NOTICE: This job has now expired and will not be accepting any more applications.

Established in 1983, Aston Manor is the largest independently owned cider maker in the UK.

You may be more familiar with our brands than you are with our company but as second largest cider producer in the UK, our business is no small beer!

Operating from three sites, Aston Manor Cider has a production and packaging facility in Birmingham, orchards in Worcestershire and Herefordshire and a further production and packaging facility at Tiverton in Devon.

Our culture is ‘unified’ where we promote employee involvement, open communication, teamwork and cooperation, with accountability at all levels. This creates opportunities and allows for innovation which is the back bone of our success. We constantly seek to drive efficiency and provide exceptional products and service to our customers.

We are still 100% family owned and even with our meteoric growth our heritage and our values remain unaltered. We have only achieved our successes because of the committed and talented team we have.

Further growth is very much part of our vision and in 2013, we announced the planting of 1,000 acres of additional new orchards, committing to the planting of over 350,000 trees. In doing so, we have agreed twenty-five year contracts with our farmer and grower partners.

Job Description

Reporting to the Head of Marketing, this role has been created through the growth of our cider brand portfolio and our ambitions to grow further market share.
