About Spirit

Spirit Executive has established itself as the most effective and targeted Boutique Search and Contingency player in the global alcohol and FMCG markets. Delivering a highly ethical and precise service, in an industry that is too often focused on volume and speed at the expense of the client and candidate. We are the specialists at identifying and engaging with the top tier of passive talent.

We partner with only a select number of clients whose brands and values we feel passionate about and find them the top 10% of diverse talent globally. We have worked with clients such as Mark Anthony Brands International, Diageo, Irish Distillers, Heineken, C&C Group, William Grants, Bushmills, Molson Coors, Intrepid Spirits, Pepsi, Unilever, Danone, Coca Cola, Kerry, Heinz and many more. Our expertise in building teams is cross functional and we consult on roles across Marketing, Sales and Operations.


We have worked in your industries and understand the roles, cultures and brands.

It means an un-rivalled network; building cultures, not just filling roles; finding and representing the top talent tier & top tier companies.


True long-term partnership. We are an almost entirely referral based business. We work as an extension of your recruitment team. Acting as a PR agent for our clients. Partnering with top candidates to enrich their career progression.  A true specialist in assisting our client in building teams and culture.


Trust = Partnership = Results

Everything we do has an ethical base, so the market trusts us. Our approach is polar opposite to other recruiters. We hear this every day from our clients and candidates.


We love to make a positive impact on each client and candidate we work with. We love what we do. We love to make a mark on each candidate & client we deal with.


We have successfully built Global and local teams from top to bottom. We have exclusive relationships with some of the largest companies in the world. We walk the talk; we deliver.

What we do differently?

Curating and managing an unparalleled, global network of industry leaders and providing unique access, influence and insight to organisations and their future best in class employees. Leveraging this framework to provide value-add services beyond simply recruiting for roles, to ensure you are developing your organisation and its culture. Building diversity pipelines and keeping you ahead of the curve.

We are not a 'Generalist' and as such only operate in areas where we can provide best in class standards of service and advice. Should an assignment or task not fall within our core experience we will recommend an alternative source to both clients and candidates. Our referral system is the life blood of our core process and the reason we are consistently the 'go-to' consultants in the alcohol and FMCG industries.

In essence; we work with the top 10% of clients and candidates, matching excellence with excellence.
