Divino is aiming to become the number one household brand for premium frozen desserts in the UK and it has been featured in national and local press in recent weeks including the Guardian, Daily Mail, Evening Standard, Stylist, the Observer, the Sun and Vogue.

We are looking for an entrepreneurial minded individual willing to join the team and grow the business to the next stage. Passion for the product is a must as we offer the best gelato desserts in the country (or at least this is what our customers say!) 


About you

As co-head of business development at Divino you will be in charge of looking after exciting existing and new customers both in the B2C and B2B channels within the UK market. These include Whole Foods, Partridges, Ocado, Waitrose, Costco, Dorchester, Hilton, Marriott among others.  

You will work in close cooperation with the business CEO (Italian, former investment banker, based in NYC), COO (Brasilian, former management consultant, based in London), CMO (American, former trader, based in Chicago), Co-Head of BD (British, former management consultant, based in London), and the production team based in Italy.


About Us

The business has a very diverse and fun team of 10 young people (born 1985 to 1995) based in central London. We tend to be very result oriented (keeping meetings to a minimum) as to keep working hours to 9 am to 6 pm Monday to Friday with the occasional social event in the late afternoon / early evening.

We have a strong social office culture tending to have lunch all together every day. We are all quite passionate about sports including hockey, football, formula 1, sailing, rock climbing, cycling and basketball.

We look forward to hearing from you and joining the team!
