Tastings & Events Manager

Published:  14 June, 2017

The Wine Society is one of the country's leading wine merchants and lists more than 1,500 wines, ranging from £6 to over £500 a bottle. It is a mutual selling only to its members and exists purely for their benefit. Member satisfaction is paramount; maximising profit is not.

An exciting opportunity has arisen to lead The Society’s Tastings and Events team which takes The Society to its members all over the UK with a comprehensive and varied programme of tastings and events.

As a full-time member of the team, you will be responsible for overseeing the development of the varied programme and will be involved in all aspects of delivering a busy schedule of events. You will be able to present with confidence, knowledge and authority to audiences from between 20 and 500 wine enthusiasts.

To thrive in this high profile role, you will have excellent communication skills and a passion to share your wine knowledge combined with strong management skills and a reputation for delivering unsurpassed service standards. You will already have achieved (or will be working towards) the WSET Diploma and have successfully planned, organised and delivered a variety of events.

Your working style must be hands on and you will combine this with the effective management and development of a small, well established team. The event schedule is demanding and will involve frequent travel, evening working and regular overnight stays.  You will need to possess a full driving licence and be able to lift and move cases of wine.

If you are motivated by our unique ethos and possess the necessary range of skills, experience and drive, please visit for more information or telephone Andrea Harkness, Human Resources Adviser, on 01438 761280.
