When you join DB, you become a member of the global HEINEKEN family where you’re encouraged to be yourself, share your ideas, learn and grow as part of one of the largest beer and cider brewing companies in the world.
We offer a wide range of jobs and career paths and we’re committed to supporting your growth whether it’s with us or one of HEINEKEN’s 70+ operating companies around the globe.
Our team culture is reflected in our four company values which set out DB's expectations of you as an employee while also affirming our promise to you as an employer. A big contributor to the DB culture, aside from our awesome people, is the commitment we make to supporting your physical, financial and mental wellbeing, which you’ll learn more about shortly.
Being part of a business that spans 70 countries means you’ll work with a truly diverse team, learn from the collective experience of over 80,000 people around the globe and, if you want it, take the opportunity to advance your career internationally. In New Zealand, DB employs people across three breweries and a cidery based in Auckland, Paraparaumu, Nelson and Timaru.
Quite a number of our team have worked in other HEINEKEN operating companies including Kiwis who wanted global exposure and expats who've chosen to make New Zealand their home. This mix of culture, experience and energy creates the ideal environment for ideas and innovation... that excites us because we believe diverse views make great brews!

If you'd like to be considered for preferred supplier status, please email email@example.com with an overview of your business and your areas of expertise. We review our PSA every few years and may contact you prior to our next review.
