Quintessential Brands is seeking to appoint a dynamic and ambitious marketer as International Brand Manager for BLOOM Gin – one of the fastest growing premium gins in the UK and with significant global momentum.  This role is one of the key brand leads in the premium gin portfolio and will play a pivotal role in expanding the global footprint of BLOOM, particularly in the US, Spain, UK and GTR.

The BLOOM core brand essence is to be the gin that celebrates women with purpose and the brand has a strong lifestyle focus with a number of links with aspirational partners and events as well as a calendar of strong seasonal activations that are amplified by a number of digital platforms.

The role, which is broad in scope and opportunity, is to capitalise on the booming premium gin category to step-change the brand’s growth both in the UK and in key international gin markets.  You will be fully responsible for the global brand P&L and will need to identify growth opportunities and develop marketing initiatives to take BLOOM to the next level in its growth trajectory.
