Thanks to its longstanding partnership with the UEFA Champions League, Heineken was able to offer the ultimate career opportunity: a job working at Heineken HQ, Amsterdam, on the premium beer brands’ hottest football sponsorship property.
The role includes accompanying the UEFA Champions League Trophy around the world as it travels to Wembley for the final on May 25.
But as this was an incredible job opportunity, one which men across the world dream of, an ordinary interview just wouldn’t suffice. Heineken needed the best candidate and so devised an interview process with a difference.
Heineken and The Candidate
‘The Candidate’, is a behind-the-scenes video demonstrating the reactions of the job seekers as they are suddenly forced outside of their comfort zone with tasks like reviving the boss as he ‘blacks-out’ during the interview and helping to rescue a stranded Heineken employee from the roof after a ‘fire-alert’.

The ending will make you feel all warm inside on a chilly Thursday. Enjoy!
