There has never been a more exciting time to join our Manchester Brewery.

Our brewery remains a pivotal part of our UK supply chain network, producing around five million hectolitres per year of Foster's, Kronenbourg 1664 – and, more recently – Heineken®.

Your can-do attitude and enthusiasm will be warmly welcomed and your problem-solving skills will be put to good use. If you have a positive outlook with a continuous improvement mindset, and solid experience of modern planned maintenance techniques and Computerised Maintenance Management systems, then we want to hear from you.

Your confidence and ability to work autonomously, and with colleagues, will help build an awesome team culture and working environment based on trust, accountability and respect – one that you'll really enjoy being part of!
