Are you a dynamic individual who wants to grow in a company that actively supports your development?

If you answered yes to these questions, Majestic Wine would love to hear from you!

Majestic Wine are seeking to recruit a vibrant, people focused Retail Assistant Manager for our thriving Stratford-upon-Avon store who’s excited about developing a career in retail. Gone are the days where retail has to be boring and buying wine is a stuffy industry just for the rich and famous! Majestic Wine is all about customer experience and what better way to engage with customers than opening a bottle at our tasting counter?

We are looking for someone who has great customer engagement and sales skills to turn high footfall into GP growth and help lead the team to success! Applicants should be interested in wine and would enjoy recommending wines to customers (don't worry we can teach you the knowledge, all you have to do is bring the enthusiasm).

Who are Majestic?

We want Majestic Wine to be the place people think about when they want to buy wine. People aren’t interested in what you do, but why you do it…

Majestic Wine are the largest wine specialist in the UK with over 200 stores, as well as a very significant online presence and megastores in Calais, France. Following the merger between Naked Wines and Majestic, CEO Rowan Gormley has set the wheels in motion to transform the business into a new kind of retailer - a retailer that is loved by customers, loved by suppliers and loved by shareholders.
