Activation Merchandiser - Central Auckland

Location: Auckland
Function: Commerce
Sub-Function: Commerce - Sales - Wholesale
Type of Contract: Permanent


  • Your entry point to a career in sales with DB!

  • Salary + bonus, company vehicle and great employee benefits


Activation Merchandisers are a pivotal role in us maintaining our world class standards and keeping our customers happy.  This 'grass roots' role will introduce you to the world of FMCG and sales where you'll gain a strong understanding of our industry and, if you want it, a career trajectory within DB. 


In this role, you'll be the face of DB/Heineken's image in the grocery market, so you’ll need to be someone who can build strong relationships and takes a customer-centric approach.  You may already have merchandising experience, although this isn’t essential… it’s more important to us that you take pride in your work, have a positive outlook and that you’re resilient and self-motivated.  


It’s a role that requires reasonable physical fitness as you’ll be building displays, filling shelves and organising stock, so some heavy lifting is required.  We’ll provide you with a company vehicle, so you must have a full, clean New Zealand driver's licence.

The nature of our customers in Central Auckland means your 40 hour week will be worked Thursday to Monday (Tuesday and Wednesday will be your weekend), with 5.30am starts aside from a 10am start on Sundays.


PLEASE NOTE:  In order to meet the expectations of our customers, and because we’re committed to keeping our communities safe, we can only consider applicants who have been fully vaccinated against COVID-19. 


In return for your commitment and capability, and as part of our aspiration to be the best place to work in NZ, we offer you:

  • Base salary plus bonus and a company vehicle.

  • Health, life and income protection insurances.

  • Monthly product allowance – yes, free beer!

  • Professional development and training including exceptional leadership development.

  • A supportive, high performing team environment.

  • ‘Enjoyment of Life’ leave.

At DB, we brew the joy of true togetherness to inspire a better world.  A big part of that means brewing better people with the heart of our company in our four values:

  • Passion for consumers and customers

  • Care for people and planet

  • Enjoyment of life

  • Courage to dream and pioneer

We’re continuing our journey to becoming an inclusive workplace as we know that diverse views make great brews, and we support flexible working that meets the needs of our people and the business.


Sound like the place for you?  Apply now… we look forward to meeting you.


DB Breweries is an equal opportunity employer (EOE) and we’re committed to providing a working environment that embraces and values diversity and inclusion.  If you have any support or access requirements, we encourage you to advise us at the time of application to assist you through the recruitment process.


At HEINEKEN, we brew great beers and we build great brands. We are committed to surprising and exciting our consumers and employees everywhere. We have a proud history and heritage in brewing and in our communities. With operations in over 70 markets globally, we are the world's most international brewer.
