Lead a small team featuring currently one Logistics/Duty Co-ordinator.

  • A good understanding of excise duty matters, and have a successful track record by holding a similar role ideally within the FMCG/Drinks industry
  • A tax qualification is desirable
  • A strong compliance mind-set, with the ability to communicate intricate regulations in clear manner
  • Excellent numeracy skills, with good Excel skills
  • A professional and measured approach to working with tax and customs authorities
