Executive Officer & Event Manager (Wine Jobs: Management & Administration)


  Geelong Winegrowers Association

  Geelong, South West Coast, Victoria

An exciting opportunity currently exists for a highly motivated Executive Officer & Event Manager to join the Geelong Winegrowers Association (Wine Geelong).  

Wine Geelong is the regional association body for the Geelong Wine Region.  As one of Australia’s premium wine destinations, we are searching for the next person to help achieve the vision of our region becoming a market-leading producer of Cool Climate wines in Australia.

Wine Geelong was established over 20 years ago and encompasses a large membership base, including many of the top wine growers and wineries in the Region who are extremely passionate about what they do.

Joining our Association means that you need to be bold, determined and hands-on. You will be a strategic thinker and effective at implementing plans whilst working autonomously. You can think on your feet, multi-task and hit mutually agreed KPIs.

We are looking for someone who wants a new challenge, who is ambitious, enthusiastic and wants to be a representative of a premium wine region.

As part of the role, you will be in charge of organising our flagship food and wine events - Toast to the Coast, Winter Shiraz Festival, Pinot Affair and Summer Wine Celebration and the Geelong Wine Show.  You will take control of end-to-end event management and liaise with stakeholders to deliver the best outcomes.  You will also be responsible for several smaller winemaker tastings and educational workshops, in partnership organisations throughout the year.

To be successful, you will ideally have previous experience as an Executive Officer or in Event Management, be highly motivated, have excellent organisational skills and experience in marketing.  You would also understand accounting software (Xero) and budgets.

Our membership base and stakeholder engagement is a key priority and you would be expected to know how to build strong relationships both within the association and externally.  Attending networking functions will also be expected.

In return, we offer competitive remuneration, travel allowance, laptop, phone, and highly flexible working arrangements.
