Vacancy – Events Executive (Year-In-Industry Placement) – CLOSED

October 1, 2017

Sipsmith was started in 2009 by our founders Fairfax, Sam and Jared with the mission to open the first copper distillery in London in almost 200 years and bring London Dry Gin back to its home; made the way it used to be, the way it should be.


Once in a lifetime opportunity: a 16 month year-in-industry placement in a highly successful team, working for the best gin brand in the world. In charge of sharing our mission with sippers everywhere, you’ll be overseeing Sipsmith’s award-winning events and leading a team of ambassadors as we take the brand around the UK.

Based at the Sipsmith Distillery, you’ll leave with a glittering CV that includes genuine leadership and management in a truly entrepreneurial environment – not to mention some mean martini mixing skills. Not for the faint hearted or stuck-for-conversation type, this role requires someone who is the embodiment of fun, flair and fortitude: a swan amongst ducks, if you will. Could you be the next Sipsmith?
