Job Description

Are you a friendly, vibrant, and hard working individual?

Do you have a passion for retail and delivering fantastic customer service?

Would you enjoy being part of a small, close-knit team who work together and have fun?

If you answered yes to these questions, Majestic Wine would love to hear from you!

About Majestic?

Majestic Wine is the UK’s leading specialist wine retailer. Majestic was founded in 1980 and, alongside its Commercial and French divisions, had a turnover of over £300m last financial year.

Alongside strong growth in multi-channel sales, Majestic believe there is still a key role for a retailer that is loved by customers and loved by suppliers.  We pride ourselves on our enthusiastic, knowledgeable and friendly people, who, working as part of a close-knit team deliver exceptional customer service in a vibrant and fast paced retail environment.  More information can be found at www.careers.majestic.co.uk   

In August 2019 Majestic announced it will be continuing its story under new private ownership, and was purchased by US investment firm - Fortress. The sale included the Majestic brand, stores, website, Commercial and our French division. 

Fortress are now backing the vision for the future of Majestic and they see a lot of headroom for growth. The investment group pointed to Majestic’s ‘strong cross channel journey, expert staff and widespread brand affection’ when deciding to buy the business from its PLC status.

Our Proposition 

Majestic Wine stands apart from other retailers due to our extensive range of quality wine, our approach to selling it and our expert people - Majestic's greatest asset! We offer wine tasting in store every day and the expertise of our teams ensure a strong customer focus. All these things come together to make us unique and give us the extra personal touch we’re so proud of.
