Wine Ambassador - Waikato

Company: Villa Maria
Location: Waikato/BOP
Type: Permanent
Category: Sales / Marketing / Retail / Distributor

We are looking for someone to join our team and be a “face of Villa Maria” for the Waikato Region. 

For this part-time Wine Ambassador role we are looking for someone who is well presented, vibrant, outgoing, keen to learn and who has fantastic manners. If this is you – please keep reading!

You will need your own vehicle as you will be travelling between stores in the Waikato region, including Te Awamutu once a week and Huntly once a fortnight. Your role will incorporate building displays, stocking shelves and generally making our product shine in store. On top of this you will be required to conduct tastings both in our grocery stores and our more traditional channels. This means there will be plenty of product knowledge that you will need to learn so that your passion for our products can shine through in-store to our potential customers! 

There will be early starts – we need our displays looking great right from the beginning of the day; and some split shifts as most of the tastings are in the afternoons or evenings. The hours are expected to be 20-25 per week, depending on the number of tastings and displays. The merchandising aspect of the role will be on Monday, Tuesday and Friday mornings, with potential tastings on Thursday, Friday and Saturday from 3pm-6pm. As boxes of wine are reasonably heavy, you will need to be physically fit too.

You need to be self-motivated, highly-organised and have proven time management skills. You will also need to be great with computers (specifically MS Word, Excel and Outlook) and have access to your own with an internet connection, as you will be reporting your notes and records to your manager weekly. 

Full training will be provided, so while previous merchandising and/or wine experience would be an advantageous bonus, we are primarily looking for personality and a great attitude. 

If you believe that you are the person we are looking for, apply online now with your CV and cover letter!

Eligibility to work in New Zealand is required.
