Elicite: Fine Wine Sales Person

Published:  27 November, 2017

What did the grape say when it was crushed? Nothing, it just let out a little wine.

Elicite is an exciting new project aiming to demystify fine wine and champagne through an interactive, media based e-commerce venture.

Stemming from more than 50 years combined knowledge, their vision is to become the go-to platform for all ages to guide and navigate you through the world of fine wine and champagne. They will provide fully accessible education to the masses through the use of videos, social media, podcasts, infographic articles and much more.

There is an existing team of 15 experts with long standing field knowledge and they are looking to double in size by their official launch date, June 2018. Initial conception of this project began in March 2016 and they are looking for positive, pro-active and professional people to join their rapidly-expanding new team.

Branching out of the typical fine wine and champagne industry, they have beautiful new studio offices in South London and have created a vibrant and exciting working culture.

Are you hungry for a new challenge? Do you want to be amongst the first to join the team, being a core part of the company moving forwards? If this sounds like your cup of tea (or rather glass of wine…) then get in touch today and explore how you can join Elicite on their new adventure!
