Your Future

Thirst for great

It’s great to work for a company that actively seeks to engage employees in the business.

Working with Carlsberg UK really is a very different experience. Our open culture of recognition and reward means that anyone, whatever their role, can rise to the top in their chosen area or move around the business to experience new challenges and gain a real breadth of experience.

Some of our people have joined us from brewing and drinks businesses; for others, it’s been their first step into this fast-paced industry. But what they’ll all tell you is that, from our breweries to our distribution depots and from our Head Office to our field-based teams, we all work together as one team to delight our customers and build our business even further. With around 2,000 employees across the UK, we’ve got a friendly small business feel – which is quite something for a global brand!

We at Carlsberg UK are proud of our reputation as an inclusive employer. Our workforce is truly reflective of our diverse customer base, within the diverse communities in which we are present. Importantly, our selection criteria is based on an individual’s ability, behaviours and achievements irrespective of race, gender, disability, religion or age.

Winning Behaviours

For us passion, potential and ambition mean everything. So we look for people who are passionate about what they do and who’ll be as dedicated as we are about our great brands and our focus on the customer. You don’t necessarily need brewery experience – many of our roles simply demand that you can apply your skills to be the best you can be with us.
That’s what we mean by potential. After all, working with us is all about teamwork and service – to our customers and our colleagues. So whatever your career background, you’ll need to be looking to the future and have the ambition to drive your own development. We’ll give you all the opportunities you need to progress – you’ll have the motivation to make the most of them.
One thing all of our people have in common is their ability to bring our Winning Behaviours to life, every day. These are the values that drive our customer-focused culture and ensure that we work and interact as one team to achieve our goals:

Training and Development

I have been given an opportunity to progress in the department, with 100% support from my line managers and all the training I need to fulfil my role.

Everyone at Carlsberg UK is empowered to be what they want to be. You can move onwards and upwards to take on more senior roles as you build your expertise. You can take sideways steps, moving into new business areas and different roles to experience varied challenges. Or you can choose to specialise in a certain role to become an expert in your field.

Whatever you want to do, your on-going development is our priority. We don’t tend to deliver formal training – we prefer the hands-on methods of on-the-job coaching, mentoring and job shadowing. There are always new and exciting projects on the go and we’ll ensure that you get to play your part, developing your skills with stretching responsibilities and learning how to enhance your performance every day. In fact, it’s this kind of ‘no two days are the same’ variety that makes working with us so fast-paced and enjoyable. Take a look at our People pages to see some first-hand accounts of how we encourage and help our people to achieve their maximum potential.


As a new starter, I have felt totally welcome and I’m thrilled to work for a company that values and looks after its staff.
