For several years we have operated The Whalley Wine Shop as a ‘Hybrid’ – half wine shop and half wine bar. This has been brilliant fun and enabled us to stay true to our aim of opening great wines on site enabling our customers to taste, sample and discover new wines.We have long planned to expand the ‘Wine Bar’ element and we’re nearly there. We are well on with refurbishing the ‘Old Barclays’ building next door to the shop and opening it as a dedicated wine bar.
THE WHALLEY WINE SHOP WILL REMAIN OPEN AS A SHOP all that is changing is the wine bar element will move into its own dedicated premises next door. This will happen later this month or early June and we will provide you with more info before then.
We now need to recruit the right person to help us run this new venture. This is a great opportunity to join the business at the start, the most exciting time.
Unfortunately this isn’t a call to anyone with some bar experience… We need a candidate with great wine knowledge, a real genuine passion for wine and strong experience in a Bar management or General management role.
With the same ethos as The Whalley Wine Shop the bar will continue to be a family run business, fiercely independent, forward thinking with a hardworking and passionate team.
Initially spearheaded by Tom Jones, MD and founder of The Whalley Wine Shop we are looking to recruit a Bar Manager who will work closely in conjunction with the MD to establish the business with our ethos of passion for the product and passion for customer service. Ideally after 6 months you will take over operational control reporting directly to the MD.
The ideal candidate
If the above role appeals, you have the required experience and you want to join a team of hardworking, award winning, independent wine lovers then please get in touch with our Managing Director Tom.
PLEASE DO NOT REPLY DIRECTLY TO THIS EMAIL if you are interested in the role please send a covering letter explaining your current position and CV to firstname.lastname@example.org as soon as possible.
We would love to hear from you…
