  • The competency and time management skills to prioritise, plan and organise your workload to meet demands and deadlines is absolutely necessary
  • You are primarily motivated by sales and relationships but as you will be the face and personality of our brands, you must have an interest in wine and a willingness to learn about our diverse product range.
  • Intermediate working knowledge of the Microsoft Office suite (word and excel) and a valid NZ driver’s license are essential.
  • Only people eligible to work in this country should apply for this position. Please provide evidence of your work visa or citizenship.
