Our 'Barr Behaviours’ are a simple framework that describes how we operate in order to get things done in our growing business
Being brilliant is about setting your sights higher than they were yesterday. This is your business and if you’re brilliant, we’re brilliant. And if we’re brilliant, then we all feel the benefit. Being brilliant is having an appetite for improvement but it also means focusing on what we do well. Brilliant is the glint in your eye. The desire to push that bit harder, to add a bit of sparkle and challenge yourself and your colleagues to do better, think better, work smarter and question the way we do things. We should celebrate our successes, whether you are in sales, supply chain or support, because your success contributes to the bigger picture and means we can all enjoy competing at the highest level.
We’re a numbers business. We’ve got one eye on the money and the other on the ball and that’s because we’re all shareholders. Your results are our results and everyone makes a difference on a daily basis. By being clear on your own objectives we can line those up with the wider team and the business as a whole. It’s the key to continuous improvement and without those measures in place, we can’t be sure that we’re making it easy for people to buy from us. This is a quick tempo, fast-paced, can-do, will-do culture that creates the kind of energy that drives us forward and keeps us moving at pace.
Relationships that deliver
Relationships run deep in our business. We’ve been around for a long time and we’ve got a family origin that’s full of character, which is something we never want to lose sight of as we grow and evolve. Our relationships are human and personal and we have freedom of thought and expression. We don’t work in isolation and we stand and fall together as one team. We’re a roll your sleeves up and get the job done kind of business where our people are empowered to grow, make decisions and stand on their own two feet to build confidence with each other and our customers.
We are always looking for bright and innovation sales & marketing talent.

"Our biggest brand is IRN-BRU, which is seen by many as part of the culture of the Scottish Nation."
A new recipe for Irn-Bru is in production - and it will be released later this month.
Laced with sweeteners, the updated Irn-Bru recipe features sugar levels slashed from 10.3g per 100ml to just 4.7g - which sounds like it could be awful. And Scots aren’t happy that they've messed with perfection.
More than 42,000 Scottish sugar-fanatics have already signed an online petition opposing the change - but it is too late.
The Scots that have realised that the time to stock up on their favourite sugary soft drink is limited have taken to buying the drinks in bulk from their local supermarkets.
Others have resorted to eBay, purchasing the original sugar content version for inflated prices - with offers of up £52...
AG Barr’s insistent that the new product will be made “using the same secret Irn-Bru flavour essence” doesn’t make a difference when the sugar has been removed.
Although a recent poll proved Irn-Bru drinkers were so invested in saving their drink from its dire fate, they were even willing to pay a sugar tax on the drink - the day has finally arrived.
