Tsingtao (pronounced “ching-dow”) is only ever brewed in China using Laoshan Mountain spring water and the finest malt and hops. Tsingtao beer is a truly authentic Chinese beer, only ever brewed in the sea port of Qingdao, in North Eastern China. This guarantees that every bottle contains the same pure ingredients and has the same great taste.
German settlers founded the Tsingtao brewery in 1903. Today it is China’s No 2 beer, and the country’s largest beer export, being sold in over 90 different countries around the world.
In 2018, C&C Group became the sole importer and distributor of Tsingtao in the UK and Ireland. And we’re looking for a Brand Manager to lead the development and performance of the brand.
So what’s involved?
This role is all about designing and leading the strategic plan for growing the Tsingtao brand within the UK and Ireland. The focus is on ATL comms, brand sponsorships, partnerships and events; to ensure that marketing effort is aligned with the strategic direction of the brand.
You’ll work with our Insights, Sales and Marketing Services teams to identify and maximise opportunities in key target markets to achieve strategic gains and brand growth across the on-trade and off-trade.
You’ll work with external agencies to support brand communications across digital, traditional media and social media.
