In an effort to bolster the spirits industry’s workforce, the Distilled Spirits Council of the United States (DISCUS) launched the DISCUS Job Board. The DISCUS Job Board will connect qualified job seekers with exciting and diverse employment opportunities available at spirits producers, craft distilleries and other firms related to the spirits industry and its supply chains.
“Today, the spirits industry in the U.S. generates jobs for 1.6 million Americans across the country — and our growing sector has thousands of open positions to fill each year. That’s why we’re thrilled to announce the DISCUS Job Board – a talent pipeline to help strengthen and diversify the workforce for our members and our industry for years to come,” DISCUS President and CEO Chris Swonger said.
Industry employers will have the option to post an open position on the DISCUS Job Board for either a 30- or 60-day period, and DISCUS members will receive a significant discount on the cost of placing a job on the service. Pricing information is detailed here:
- 30-Day Posting $250 (Member) $300 (Non-Member)
- 60-Day Posting $450 (Member) $550 (Non-Member)
- Internship Free (Member & Non-Member)
Once a company’s employer account is created, the firm’s recruiters can search and review candidates in the talent pool, manage their company’s profile and add, edit or remove job listings. Employers also have the flexibility to determine whether a candidate applies through the DISCUS Job Board, the employer’s job application tool, or another third-party application platform.
A job seeker can manage their account information, privacy settings and resume content. Those individuals can also apply directly from the service and have access to the DISCUS Job Board at no cost when registering as a job seeker.
“Spirits producers, craft distillers and our industry’s supply chain partners are only as strong as the teams they assemble. The DISCUS Job Board is one more powerful way for companies in our sector to continue building talented teams to better ensure the success of their businesses and the spirits industry in this country,” Swonger said.
