(Ellon, SCOTLAND) – The UK’s fastest growing food and drink brand*, BrewDog has today announced a fifth consecutive year of record growth in 2013 and is on track to turnover £19million, up from £10.8m in 2012. To support its continued growth, the craft brewer is looking to expand its management team with a number of positions being available from today. Amidst a beer industry in decline, BrewDog has continually bucked the trend, combining domestic growth with international expansion, opening its first non-UK bar in Stockholm earlier this year.
BrewDog currently employing over 200 staff across its network of bars and offices, and plans to create more than 50 new jobs in the next 6 months including key management positions.
It is currently advertising for a Head of Sales, UK On-Trade Account Manager and UK Off-Trade Account Manager.
In addition to its recruitment drive, BrewDog is also unveiling a new £5million expansion of its Ellon brewery later this month.
The company also plans to open nine new bars in the next six months, including five UK sites, and international bars in Sao Paulo, New Delhi and Berlin.
The brewery’s rapid growth is in part funded by its crowdfunding scheme ‘Equity for Punks’.
A third round of this revolutionary scheme launched in June this year and raised £1million in 24 hours as craft beer fans clamoured to invest in the maverick brewery.
Having raised £3.6million in less than four months, BrewDog is likely to reach its £4million target way ahead of its January 2014 deadline.
