Vacancy: Retail Manager – UK / May 22

£35k-£40k depending on experience

The Spirit Cartel family are a tight knit bunch of hoods hell-bent on importing, flogging and drinking the best spirits from around the world. Their methods may be unconventional and at times questionable, but nothing stops this gang on their mission. 

This newly created role of Retail Manager, reporting to the General Manager, will be accountable for growing the distribution of core Spirit Cartel Brands across the retail sector within the UK. To be successful you will reflect Spirit Cartel’s unique ethos confidently and independently whilst networking with buyers and main contacts for the retail groups. You will be responsible for building business and development plans that help you gain listings whilst effectively controlling costs. 

Spirit Cartel work hard to achieve their ‘mission’, often using unconventional methods. We want a team member with a strong work ethic and with a deep understanding of the UK spirits market and current trends in the off trade. Existing relationships with retail customers (regional and / or national) are a must, plus you will need to demonstrate your sales experience. Your passion for spirits must be unquestionable and you must hold a UK driving licence.

Working Pattern:

37.5 hours per week, but this is not a normal 9:00 to 17:30 role; a lot of business is conducted outside of core working hours. Trade shows and events often take place at the weekend, and we will compensate with time off in lieu, but it is expected that the successful candidate will work the hours necessary to fulfil the requirements of the job.


  • Receive a competitive salary, £35k-£40k depending on your experience and industry contacts
  • Company pension
  • Company car
  • 25 days annual leave (rising to 26 days after 5 years’ service and 27 days after 10 years’ service) plus bank holidays
  • Discount on some of our products
  • Become an integral part of our family business
  • Refer a friend reward scheme
