Part Time

  Snapper Rock Wines (

  Northcote, Auckland, Auckland/Northland

Snapper Rock Wines LP is a small wine brand with an exciting future. After a difficult 2021, we have re-established ourselves in the export and domestic market. The company is proudly owned by Anna and James Leary and a small number of loyal and passionate New Zealanders who believe in the brand and what we do. We mainly focus on Marlborough wines (Sauvignon Blanc, Sauvignon Rose, Chardonnay, Pinot Noir) and round out our range with a coastal Pinot Gris. The company also has 2 smaller sub brands, imports Australian wine and exports consolidated containers from multiple vineyards to the UK. We have both a presence domestically (New World, Pak n Save and independent liquor stores) and internationally in markets such as the UK, Hong Kong, China, Australia, Canada and Europe.

We are looking for a pro-active, organized administration executive with a strong attention to detail. This is a new role to support the owners with a mixture of domestic order management, marketing, accounting and logistics while they are growing their family, and in a growing and ever changing environment the role will change with the times and the owners capability to take on work. We are looking for someone who is willing to fit in and lend a hand in a role that is very flexible and understanding of family commitments. The role is anticipated to be around 16-20 hours per week, with some days only being 1 hour, some days up to 5 or 6 depending on what needs to be done on the day. Once or twice a week you will need to come in to the office in Northcote to fulfil orders or do stocktake. A car is available in case any driving errands need to be done, a full license is a necessity.
