    The role of the Business Development Executives (BDEs) is to maximise availability, visibility and ROS to targeted On Trade customers for Pernod Ricard strategic brands within a designated post code territory.

    The BDE roles are home based, working within a defined geographical area, therefore it is required that he/she lives within this territory to understand the nature and culture within.  Although opportunities exist in all segments of the On-trade, the calls will be predominantly from the Premium sector in alignment with our brand portfolio.
