A role that is a perfect fit

Where can you best use your talents?

Our various locations each have a unique culture and career perspective. Which one would suit you best?

Royal Swinkels headquarters

As a family business, we think in terms of generations rather than years. This sets us apart from other companies. Using our pioneering spirit as a compass,  we have become a respected international player with an extensive portfolio of beers, brands, and malts.

Equipped with hyper-modern machinery, our Bavaria brewery stands for innovation and daring entrepreneurship. It combines these aspects with an informal work atmosphere and the warmth associated with Brabant.

De Koningshoeven

With close attention to detail, beers are brewed here under the supervision of monks from the Trappist order. Our closely-knit team works in a historic and unique environment that you simply must experience to believe.

Uiltje Brewing Company

At Uiltje we push the boundaries of innovation. Our creations are ingenious, fast and unexpected. Want to go beyond the normal and take your abilities further? Join us and be part of the fun!

There is one thing we consider even more important than taste: everyone matters. This mentality is expressed through everything we do and you can feel it everywhere at our brewery. We all have one thing in common: our love for craft beer.

We like to do things in a different way. Working at Bier&cO means taking a no-nonsense approach to business: you always keep your word, you use your common sense, and you are not afraid to have a good laugh!

Holland Malt

Innovation is key in everything we do. That is why we will soon open the world’s first 100% emissions-free malthouse. Join us to be part of what is next in high-quality malting.

Our brewery is a place where passion, technology and traditions come together. Everything revolves around collaboration in a warm, familial atmosphere. You can feel it in everything we do!


We innovate where we can, and maintain traditional craftmanship where we should. Join a place where dedication and teamwork unite to create an ode to the artistry and traditions of brewing.

Our beer is made for and with the people of Ethiopia. These people were quick to develop a taste for Habesha, and you will understand its tremendous potential as soon as you start working here.

Cervecería Cubana

We work in a state-of-the-art brewhouse equipped with highly automated, modern technology. The Parranda brand produced here means 'party' and is especially designed for Cuban tastes and the Cuban culture.
