As part of a regular feature here on Liquid Lounge, we are featuring drinks industry employers both in the UK and globally. Our first to feature is Pernod Ricard UK.
Who is Pernod Ricard UK?
Pernod Ricard UK is part of Pernod Ricard (the Group) – co-leader of the global wines and spirits industry. We are responsible for the sales, marketing and distribution of the Group’s leading premium spirits, wines and champagnes in the UK.
Tell us about your flagship brands- e.g. the vision, branding, heritage etc.…?
Our key brands include Absolut vodka, Beefeater gin, Chivas Regal Scotch whisky, Havana Club rum, Jameson Irish whiskey, Malibu rum, Martell cognac, The Glenlivet Scotch whisky, Perrier-Jouët champagne and our premium wine brands Brancott Estate, Campo Viejo and Jacob’s Creek. Premium is the heartland of our business and with one of the finest collections of drinks brands in the world we have earned the reputation for our unrivalled offering in premium spirits and wines – brands that embody heritage, quality and provenance.
How would you describe the culture at Pernod Ricard UK?
We are a convivial, passionate, entrepreneurial and dynamic company. We are committed to fostering a participative style of management and rely on teams led by talented managers with strong leadership skills who inspire and motivate people. Emphasis is also placed on providing a fulfilling role for employees, enabling them to develop their careers and rewarding them fairly.
What training and development opportunities are provided to employees?
Our training and development offering is designed to promote a high-performance culture that enables Pernod Ricard UK to achieve its vision of leadership within premium spirits and wines. Training is structured, consistent and practical to ensure our employees are equipped with all the necessary skills to be successful in all areas of their role. We adopt a collaborative approach to our training to ensure the optimum mix between on the job learning and more formal, workshop or e-learnings.
What’s the best thing about working for Pernod Ricard UK?
You will get to work with people who are truly passionate about what they do and are innately proud of the brands they work with. The spirit of conviviality runs through the heart of our business, and whilst we work hard and set high standards for ourselves, we are often rewarded. Last year’s Company trip to Ibiza can certainly vouch for that!
