Do you want to plan and coordinate a sell-out UK Tasting Tour?

Are you an experienced Events Manager?

Would you like the opportunity to work for an award-winning innovative online wine business?

If you have answered yes to these questions, Naked Wines would be delighted to hear from you!

 

We’re looking for an Events Manager to help take the Naked Tasting Tour to its full potential. The perfect candidate will plan and execute the Summer and Winter tours, combining seamless logistical organisation with moments of magic. They’ll also develop a strategy to support customer acquisition and customer loyalty through additional live events e.g. by considering and testing new formats and audiences.

Who are we?

Ten years after launching, Naked Wines is a community of over 300,000 Angel customers. Through our crowdfunding model, these customers support more than 140 winemakers around the world to create luxury wines at a price that makes them an everyday pleasure.

Twice a year we invite 30+ winemakers to the UK to participate in our Tasting Tour. For thousands of Angels these events are an opportunity to meet the real people behind the wines they fund, to hear their stories and discover new products. Although Angels are encouraged to purchase, the main objective is to excite and inspire – to demonstrate the authenticity and impact of our unique model and to bring our brand to life.

Responsibilities:

- Work alongside the COO, Strategic Partnerships Director and Marketing Director to develop and implement a strategy to support new customer acquisition and customer loyalty through new events

- Plan and coordinate the Winter and Summer tasting tours, including:

  • Venue selection, booking and liaison
  • Winemaker and employee travel, accommodation and catering
  • Coordination of wine selection and product logistics
  • Development of marketing materials e.g. tour booklet, video and social media strategy
  • Partner liaison e.g. caterers, photographers, third-party security
  • On-site project management (and firefighting, if necessary!)
  • Budget management and reporting

- Develop and implement strategies to enhance customer and winemaker experience on tour e.g. how can we take a proven, popular event and take it to the next level?

- Be the “face of Naked Wines” with all external stakeholders

Skills and Qualifications: 

  • Proven track record of successful event management, ideally for a consumer brand
  • Ability to lead projects from creation to completion
  • Exceptional organisational skills
  • Relentless attention to detail
  • Strong relationship builder and communicator

Benefits:

  • Competitive salary depending on experience
  • 25 days holiday per year (plus your birthday if you bring cake!)
  • Wine credit. Yep, free wine!
  • Generous pension scheme

Location:

At least 3 days per week in our Norwich HQ, with the potential to work from London / home for the remainder (which several of our team do!)
