About Alken-Maes?

At Alken-Maes, we work together to bring people together. For decades, we have enjoyed playing an Oscar-winning supporting role during captivating conversations, loving moments and buzzing parties. We are a proud member of the global HEINEKEN Company. Yet our products are local heroes, and everyone here knows everyone by name. The best of both worlds, that’s how we like to describe it. Here, everyone receives opportunities and trust. We go hard on quality and innovation but also take the time to relax afterwards. Brewers of good times of the greediest kind, that’s Alken-Maes.

This is what we stand for

Shaping the future of our beers and ciders to our consumers’ tastes is our aim at Alken-Maes. Our purpose? “We brew the joy of true togetherness to inspire a better world”. That’s the magic of Alken-Maes, that’s The HEINEKEN Company’s mission. Getting together, making memories and creating bonds. That’s how we help make the world a little more beautiful day by day, beer by beer, cheers by cheers.

This is Alken-Maes

Why (not to) choose Alken-Maes?

Good Times Brewing
Good Times Brewing slogan
  • Thinker and doer, thoughtful entrepreneurship runs in your blood
    Roll up your sleeves because things are moving forward here. You like to take the initiative, think up pragmatic solutions and set up actions to achieve the final goal. Simply waiting until an opportunity crosses your path is not your style. Your career is what you make of it, right?
  • International or local, why choose
    You effortlessly turn the impact of a global player into a pat on the back for one of our local brands. Our craftsmanship knows no boundaries; here, you build bridges between, say, Puurs and Peru. Good news: tournée générale sounds good in any language.
  • Brewers of good times who go for it as a team
    Opportunities, challenges and successes – the good, the bad and the great? You will join a team that knows that together they jump further than alone and that celebrating is more fun in good company. At Alken-Maes, the beer glass is always half full, and a ‘cheers’ is always near.
  • Prioriwhat?
    Did we mention that things are constantly moving forward here? No lengthy ramblings or unnecessarily long validation processes at Alken-Maes. We take the shortest route between initiative and sustainable results here, and you independently monitor your priority list.
  • “Sorry, that’s not in my job description”
    Whoops, we don’t like to hear that here! Mind you, we do have descriptions, but our roles are broad, and we don’t like tight constraints. We’re not very good at such a structure either (yet). That is why initiators, people who get on with it and can establish order themselves, find their place here.
  • Soloslim is not a position on the team
    We don’t just award trophies for your individual merits. We usually win together. Unless you want to cheer on your own, but we think it’s more fun together. Does that mean your achievements go unnoticed? Of course not. In some jobs, individual moments of success are more relevant than in others, but we applaud regardless. We like to look at it efficiently: does the shortest route to a strong solution run only past your station? Great. Do you want to reinvent the wheel? Then we are no match.

Make a spontaneous application


Malt (produced in-house), water, yeast and hops are the basic ingredients of our beer. Makes sense! Competing at the highest level requires a bit more: drive, innovation and sparkling passion, for instance. Our brewers, operators, technicians, demand planners, packing teams, … join forces to ensure the perfect serve. At the pub or at home. Cheers!

Working in Production

Imagine a pub with no beer when you’re having a birthday party or empty shelves at the supermarket right when you’re organising a housewarming party. Our sales colleagues ensure it won’t happen and that our great products are ready for you in the on-trade and through retailers. Your snazzy local Cristal pub or a fresh Maes when your favourite team scores 1-0, they do it all!

Working in Sales

Feeling a little thirsty while scrolling through Instagram? One of our creative and analytical Jacks-of-all-trades from our marketing department might have something to do with that. From Desperados to Cristal, from print ads to TV commercials: our well-known premium beers and ciders are put on their well-deserved pedestal thanks to our marketing team.

How many interns are you recruiting?

14.3 interns per financial year. Just kidding, we don’t have a set number of interns. Far more important: do we feel a connection, because good times don’t brew themselves. By connection, we mean the desire to work hard and have fun. We ask you to join us for at least three months. It could be in marketing, maintenance, working with the engineers in the brewing area, etc. Regarding internship profiles, we are like a fresh Strongbow: flexible and fun. Just send in your internship application, and we’ll ensure it reaches the right colleagues.

What kind of jobs can I do as a student at Alken-Maes?

During the summer, we are busy-busy-busy as the summer is a season for beer, thanks to festivals, pub terraces, barbecues, and more. Our job is to provide the right amount of fresh ciders, beers and Desperados to quench everyone’s thirst. Interns are therefore very welcome to join, for example, our customer service, logistics and sales support teams during those months.

Who can I contact regarding an internship or student job at Alken-Maes?

Send your application to jobs@alken-maes.com, and it will reach our HR department. There is no separate department for interns or students because each workforce member is a part of the same vibrant Alken-Maes crew.
