UK Brewer with 20+ Years International Experience Seeks Long Term Position

Hello there, my name is Neil Playfoot and I have 20 years international experience in the brewing industry. I’ve worked in Europe, Asia and Bermuda.

I have knowledge of British plus American style ales and packaging into keg, bottle and cask. I’ve worked as an solo autonomous brewer in a brewpub to working in a large company such as ABI-China as a craft beer specialist.

I’ve done everything from grain to glass in my time as a brewer. I feel my varied international experience has made me a more rounded individual who can fit into any team dynamic and I’m happy to deal with the public plus media to promote the brewery I’m working with.

Some of the skills I could offer you are:

  • Maintaining raw material stock levels to make sure production is continuous and overseeing raw material intake so that only that of sufficient quality is accepted.
  • Overseeing all aspects of liquid manufacturing from raw material intake to finished liquid. Making sure SOP’s are adhered too and finished product is within targets set to send to market.
  • Maintaining a safe and tidy work environment by implementing safety procedures so everyone is aware of health and safety protocols on site.
  • Excellent communication (written and verbal) skills. I have found myself working in many different countries and cultures so had to learn to adapt my approach to make sure I can lead teams to complete targets in a positive environment.
  • Fostering a happy and efficient working environment by implementing a culture of best practices through writing and implementing thorough SOP’s and gaining regular feedback from the whole team.
  • Record keeping through Microsoft Office and liquid management applications.
  • Devise training plans and offer support to help junior employees fulfil their potential.
  • Experience of quickly adapting to new countries, cultures and working environments.
