  • It’s not just knowing your wines, it’s knowing what customers want.

    Do you know your Merlot from your Mourvèdre? If so, we’ve got an exciting role, here at the heart of Matthew Clark. Our fast-paced business is growing quickly and we need a sommelier or wine whizz to take this category further. As Matthew Clark expands, so does our range of opportunities – great news for your career.    

    What you’ll do

    In this fantastic, high-profile role, you’ll be the key to sales growth in our wine and champagne category. You’ll be joining a well-regarded team, working with regional accounts. From supporting the regional wine and champagne strategy to advising on key tenders and range reviews, you’ll be a source of expert guidance and an ambassador for our portfolio. It means you’ll be involved in decisions at the highest level – on purchasing compliance, wine activity in top regional accounts and much more besides. If you’re ready to deliver strategy, act as a mentor and support the wider business, we’ll give you an unbeatable opportunity to make your expertise count!

    About you

    Clearly, you need to be an authority on the wine and champagne category. We’ll expect in-depth knowledge, perhaps gained as a skilled sommelier or in a wine sales role. This experience should come with a WSET Diploma – but we’re looking for much more. We want a highly engaging professional who can work with a wide range of contacts; a natural consultant who’ll give sound guidance and exceptional presentations. With account management experience to support your excellent people skills, you’ll be credible, commercially sharp and an asset to the business. 

    What we offer

    We offer a competitive salary & an excellent bonus structure along with a range of fantastic benefits, including:

    • 25 days’ holiday (plus bank holidays) - with the option to buy a further week
    • A laptop, phone and a (business need) company car
    • A Contributory Pension Scheme
    • A Share Incentive Plan (subject to eligibility)
    • Private Healthcare Cover and Life Assurance
    • A  benefits scheme offering childcare vouchers, a cycle to work scheme, an employee assistance programme, retail & leisure savings, and lots more!

    We work with some fantastic people, we’re passionate about what we do and we have some fun along the way! Join us and you could have a career for life. If you want to know more about us and our work, take a look here or here. If this all resonates with you, then we’d love to hear from you.
