While not focused solely on wine, this job at New Zealand Trade & Development in Beijing will no doubt involve the good drop. The office needs a business development manager who is seeking “the chance to unleash the potential of New Zealand businesses in China”. The ideal candidate has a background in China’s food and beverage sector, understands the local supply chain and has experiment in promotion and brand building. From the job posting:

Based in our Beijing office, your key accountability will be to develop market opportunities for New Zealand businesses operating in the Food and Beverage sector and to assist those businesses to enter, establish, and grow in the market. You will be energised by the ability to evaluate the strengths, weaknesses and opportunities of the businesses in this market, how we stack up against the competition and reshape strategies and business models accordingly. It is expected that you will lead the development & strategy for key food & beverage sectors including seafood, wine and meat.

You’ll be fantastic at building relationships globally to ensure you are aligned and working in sync with our New Zealand and globally based teams. In return you’ll join an organisation that is passionate about growing New Zealand, work within a lively team environment with focused and experienced leadership.

Yep, I have a feeling that job will entail imbibing a significant amount of quality Kiwi wine. In any case, for more details and the specific qualifications required see here. The application deadline is 5 PM on May 17.
