We Go Places! How about you?
Location: Auckland
Function: Finance
Sub-Function: Finance - Business Control
Type of Contract: Permanent


Join the brand behind most of New Zealand’s favourite brews and you could really go places – in every possible way.


If you are an ambitious financial professional, with the ability to balance your expertise between team leadership, strategic business partnering with the executive team as well as regional stakeholders, then this may be the role you have been looking for. Take this moment to step into a role that defines your career, with opportunities for growth within New Zealand and internationally with Heineken.

Ready to go places? Of course you are. And with us, you will.


At DB/Heineken, you’ll be part of one of the largest beer and cider brewing companies in the world. With more than 250 brands in 70 countries, we’re behind many Kiwis’ favourite brews – probably even yours. So things just got very interesting for your career.

You are responsible for reporting on the total DB Business Performance, consisting of our domestic and export business as well as Joylab and Australian subsidiary DRINKWORKS.  You will be a strategic business partner in supporting and challenging DB and its subsidiaries executive teams and represent DB and its interest to one of the board of directors.


Overseeing financial and business control for DB’s entities ensures they have optimal resource and investment allocation. This is achieved through facilitating the setting of the KPI framework and driving business performance meetings to monitor and steer delivery of KPIs. As well as setting planning, budgeting & forecasting cycle (Strategic plan, Annual plan and Latest Estimates).

As a consolidated group on entities, this significantly increases the complexity with regards to reporting on business performance, deciding on strategy and managing the planning and reporting process. However, with your progressive experience in multiple finance divisions has ensured you are more than capable for the task at hand.


Opportunities don’t get much better than this. You’ll join a fun environment, with enthusiastic people who care about a good drop. We value innovation and individuality – it’s a place where you can feel free to be yourself, and be confident to share your ideas about how we can be even better. And sustainability’s a key part of how we do business, because we know that a company of our size has both the influence and the responsibility to consider our impact.


At DB we aspire to be the best place in NZ to work so we can offer you:

  • Health, life & income protection insurances;
  • Competitive remuneration;
  • Professional development and training including exceptional leadership development
  • Diverse projects and the ability to work with multi-disciplinary co-workers;
  • A supportive, high performing team environment;
  • Enjoyment of Life Leave
  • Monthly product allowance – yes free beer
  • Free parking!


Take this opportunity to work for one of New Zealand's most iconic companies who brew and market some of NZ's favourite beer, cider & RTD brands. At DB we are all about ‘Brewing a Better New Zealand’ and a big part of that means brewing better people with the heart of our company in our 3 values:

  • Respect for People and for the Planet
  • Passion for Quality
  • Enjoyment of Life


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

If that sounds good to you, there’s more. Career progression opportunities at DB/Heineken are limitless, so if you’ve got a thirst for adventure it’s the place to be. You’ll find opportunities to work across different brands, business units, roles, and even countries.


See what we mean when we say you could go places?  Apply today… we look forward to meeting you….
