Job Description

What we are looking for:

We are passionate about helping people find the wine they’ll love. Whether our customers are wine lovers or wine novices, our retail teams are there to help!

So we are looking for people who are passionate about engaging with customers, who can work within a team and get our customers excited by exciting products.


What you will get:

Free WSET Qualifications  - All our staff receive free product training. So you don't have to be a knowledge, but a hunger to learn helps!

First Rate Training - “Wine Lover to Business Partner” gives you an opportunity to receive training which will take you from a trainee manager to a business partner - where you get to run a store as if it's your own business

A chance to work in an exciting, busy environment with a culture that rewards work hard

Work within a team who are passionate about wine and providing excellent customer service  


What you’ll be doing:

Delivering exceptional service to every customer, in-store and out on deliveries in our vans, so they keep coming back.

Using your growing wine wizardry to help us dispel the belief that wine is a pompous product, bring wine to life and help our customers find and buy wines they love.  

Helping to run a smooth operation, ensuring your store is spick and span, fully stocked and a great place to shop.

Being a team player and contributing to your store success and sales targets.  


Is it for me?

Our people come from all walks of life.You could be a fresh graduate, a seasoned retail or hospitality professional or someone looking for a total career change. But there’s a few things that they all have in common.  


At Majestic we are:

- People people.  A natural leader, you’re humble, more than happy to roll your sleeves up and muck in, and you enjoy working hand in hand within a close-knit team. And of course you like having fun.

- Customer champions.  You live, think and breathe customer experience.

- An interest to learn about Wine -  You certainly don’t have to be an expert, but you have a real enthusiasm for learning about wine, and sharing that with our customers and your team.  

- Retail!  From working busy weekends to studying for industry-recognised wine qualifications, it’s a long way from a Monday to Friday, 9 till 5 desk job.

- Doers. You have a strong sense of personal responsibility and accountability.  You make things happen.

- Collaborative - At Majestic, it's all about working well within the team. If its all about me, its probably not for you.

- Good drivers. You have held a full driving license (that’s valid in the UK) for at least 12 months, and are over twenty years old.
