A fantastic opportunity has arisen for hungry, driven and ambitious FMCG sales and national accounts candidates to join this rapidly growing Energy drinks brand, Carabao who have already seen fantastic success during 2016 after launching in the UK earlier this year. We are looking for talented candidates with High Street, Convenience, Forecourts & Symbols, and Grocery experience to join the growing sales team.
Carabao is an energy drink that was inspired by the fighting spirit of an individual. It is more than a global energy drink, it is the empowerment to accomplish personal goals. Carabao symbolises the spirit of individuals who fight for the cause they believe in. Not by force, but with determination, hence the 'fighting spirit of Carabao'.
Around the world, energy drinks have become popular with the young, trendy urban population. By positioning these drinks as trendy and fashionable, many companies have forgotten the original purpose of an energy drink. Many of these so called energy drinks have now become soft drinks. Carabao believes that energy drinks were created with a purpose; to provide replenishment for lost energy.
In Thailand, home of the world's leading energy drinks, this type of beverage was made to provide replenishment for lost energy. Carabao adheres to these basic principles and has therefore positioned itself as an energy drink for those who need replenishment. The Carabao logo is unique amongst energy drinks brands as it was designed by Aed Carabao himself. It represents the physical and emotional strength of people who possess the fighting spirit. The stylized image of a buffalo skull, with the red bird that represents freedom, can be seen everywhere in Thailand.
The brand is already the main sponsor of Reading Football Club who play in the English Championship but have been a successful Premier League club and will be again. Carabao has also entered into an extremely exciting partnership with Chelsea Football Club with the business investing some £30m across the next three years which will generate close to £100m annually in global brand awareness value.
Of note, Carabao recently announced a 3 year, multi-million pound sponsorship of the EFL Cup - which will be known as the Carabao Cup. Played across over 90 teams involving all English Football leagues, it offers the brand incredible consumer awareness opportunities throughout the campaign, culminating with the Final being played at Wembley!
