SABMiller – Why Work For Us?

SABMiller is a global leader in the beer and soft drinks business, bringing refreshment and sociability to millions of people all over the world who enjoy our drinks, and we do business in a way that improves livelihoods and builds communities.

We are passionate about brewing and have a long tradition of craftsmanship in making superb beer from high quality natural ingredients.  We are local beer experts, producing more than 200 local beers most of which are freshly brewed from locally-grown ingredients and only sold locally by our emerging and developed market businesses.  We also brew internationally famous beers such as Peroni Nastro Azzurro, Pilsner Urquell, Miller Genuine Draft and Grolsch.  We produce our own soft drinks as well as beer and are one of the world's largest bottlers of Coca-Cola drinks.

We've become a global leader by excelling locally - nurturing strong, local brands and building brand portfolios that meet the specific needs of consumers in each of our markets.  We have a deep respect for local cultures and values, and strive to be a positive influence on the lives of our consumers, customers and the communities in which we operate.

It is highly motivating to work in an industry with such a product as beer - which has a long history and I believe a bright future ahead.”

Franz Schepping, Technical Director, Zambia



“I especially love the challenge of the pseudo dark marketing environment that Botswana exists in currently .It has stretched me in ways I didn’t imagine I would and could be stretched.  With so many “cannots” based on legislation and self-governance it was very exciting to be given the latitude to create “why nots?”

Amakura Erbynn, Marketing Manager, Botswana



“The Sales Capability role has given me the opportunity to pull together different departments within the sales team and further develop individual’s knowledge, skills and behaviours. Collaborating with various people in sales, marketing and category insights also allows the Capability Team to deal with all different facets of the business.”

Leigh Forsey, Sales Capability Manager, Carlton and United Breweries, Australia

    Top professionals in a very dynamic environment. Driven by the need to be best in class, every day is learning experience.


    Work life balance is difficult to achieve. Strong leaders that tend to leave little room for discussion. Training and skill development is not a priority

    It was a thorough interview with behavioral questions, nothing unexpected. Strength, weakness, challenges, why you fit the role & do you like beer. It was all face to face 1:1.
