As the Corporate Affairs Executive, you’ll have a wide remit, with the chance to learn and be an integral part of an experienced team while making your own mark on the role. You’ll work across both corporate and consumer initiatives, giving you the opportunity to develop well-rounded experience, no two days will be the same. You might find yourself:

We are looking for someone who is passionate about communications and is keen to get stuck in. You’ll be comfortable with the foundation skills of a Corporate Affairs Executive, and be willing to keep learning and developing. Ideally you’ll have 2-3 years’ experience in a communications role and be confident with digital media and using and analysing data in communications strategies.

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 is 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.

If that sounds good to you, there’s more. Career progression opportunities both in New Zealand and overseas 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.
