A fantastic opportunity has arisen to join Beam Suntory in the prestigious role of Global Marketing Manager to work on their renowned Bowmore brand. An integral member of the global brand team, this is a key role to manage one of the world’s most collectable Single Malt Brands and be part of a highly talented team of individuals.
Reporting into the Senior Director for global Scotch & Irish Whiskey, you will support on the 12 year plan with a lead role in the 3 year Growth Planning Process for Bowmore with all key markets, as they look to accelerate the growth of this fantastic brand. Critical projects including range architecture, innovation, pricing and allocation strategy will all be central to your role, as well as other key projects fundamental to the Bowmore brand strategy. As the Bowmore lead, you will input into the performance process for the brand assessing the ‘what and why’ and making recommendations on actions. Exceptional leadership skills are essential, as you will work closely with cross functional teams on key brand innovation projects from initial concept development through to commercialisation in market. Critical to your role will be the development of the experience platform and programs for the Bowmore brand, ensuring world class assets are delivered according to market needs, and partnerships are leveraged.
To be successful in this role, we’re looking for international experience, ideally with exposure to Asian markets, with a solid background in brand management. Candidates will ideally have experience in the whisky category, but wider luxury spirits experience will be considered. You will be commercial astute, creative, with first class interpersonal and leadership skills, as this role requires significant cross functional involvement in the delivery of projects. Effective influencing skills are also vital with the ability to motivate and enthuse peers to ensure break through marketing.
Beam Suntory is a business built on integrity and authenticity and their core business values remain an important framework to the business moving forward: We over me. Building legacy. Build our future. Inclusivity. If you would you think you have what it takes, and would love to be the next Bowmore Global Marketing Manager, then please do get in touch.
As well as working in close collaboration with our clients, and the online marketplaces, we are active members of groups that have been established to combat illicit trade. These include the Scottish Anti-Illicit Trade Group, the European Intellectual Property Office, The Scottish Business Resilience Centre, the Anti-Counterfeiting Group, and the China Britain Business Council. Members of our senior management sit on the boards of ACID (Anti-Copying in Design), the Scottish Ministerial Trade Board, and the European Union Intellectual Property Office’s Observatory Panel for SMEs, amongst others.
Each team member nominates good causes or charities that are supported on both an individual and corporate basis. Wherever possible, we support the employee’s involvement whether through time or fundraising events.
We deliver purpose-driven work from an extremely welcoming environment near the City Centre. We actively encourage the responsible use of resources, from using public transport to reuse, recycling, and, of course, a minimal impact office environment. We have benefited from the advice of the Energy Saving Trust and Resource Efficient Scotland. Our waste contractor also provides us with a monthly report on volumes and types of material and the carbon emissions avoided through recycling.
Over 80% of our employees can walk or cycle to The Lair and, pre-pandemic, 10% were using public transport as their normal daily commuting mode. Without doubt, online meetings will replace considerable miles, going forward, saving resources, time and energy. Where possible, when possible, the train remains our preferred option.
Our people are our most important asset, and their mental well-being and happiness are core to our success. We love our diverse workforce, actively embrace flexible working (even pre-pandemic!) and encourage a healthy work-life balance. We have been recognised as one of the most diverse SME workplaces in the UK and are holders of the Scottish Business Pledge which exists to promote a fairer Scotland. We have also just been included in the 2021 Culture Leaders Top 25 – an accolade of which we are very proud!
We are a fully inclusive and nurturing employer and, despite being in tech, the majority of our team are women, leading to accolades in the Computing Magazine Women in IT Awards and the Amazon Growing Business Awards. We currently represent 15 nationalities and speak 20 languages. Age is no barrier, and we recruit for attitude, providing and encouraging appropriate learning and training for each and every role.
We are also proud members of IP Inclusive, a network of professionals working to make the intellectual property industry more diverse.
Our aim is to combat illicit online trade by identifying and removing counterfeits for sale. Counterfeits not only damage brands, their reputations, and revenues, but can cause significant harm to the end customer – whether as a fake toy or a fake medicine – and the consequences can be life threatening.
Counterfeiting is a significant economic and social issue.
The OECD reports that counterfeit and fake goods make up more than 3.3% of the world’s global trade. Those involved in the trade of counterfeits have been linked to people trafficking, prostitution, and drug dealing.
As such, reducing illicit trade is about much more than brand protection but also about human rights, safety, and social equity.
And this is what we do, every day.
