Funkin Innovation Champion Competition Launches

Funkin have launched a competition to find a bartender to join their team of cocktail experts, including Ben Reed, for the next year and win £1,000 cash.

Becoming a brand ambassador seems to be the in thing for bartenders at the moment but Funkin are looking for someone to do more than just that and even better is it is a part-time role so you can continue to work in your bar – the best of both worlds.

The winner of the Innovation Champion competition will join the Funkin team on a paid, part-time freelance basis for one year. Alongside the traditional brand ambassador roles of trainings, events and educational sessions they will also be asked to use their experience and creativity to aid future product development and the, not to be sniffed at, £1,000 cash prize.

To enter the competition simply follow the link below and fill in the online form with your signature Funkin Cocktail and provide a 100 word explanation on why you should be selected to become the Funkin Innovation Champion.

In September the finalists will go head-to-head in a cocktail competition judged by a panel of industry experts led by Funkin consultant and industry expert Ben Reed.

At BarLifeUK we think this competition provides a superb and unique opportunity for someone to further their talents with a greatly respected and popular company and learn many new skills whilst still keeping their ‘night to night’ job in their bar.

As Funkin’s CEO Andrew King says ‘This is a unique opportunity for a talented and aspirational bartender to take the next step in their career. The role is a chance to gain invaluable skills working with our team of talented product developers and a brand which has been at the forefront of the UK cocktail scene for the last decade.’
