Assistant Wine Buyer - Builders (Wine Jobs: Management & Administration)

Full Time

  Builders Arms Hotel

  Melbourne, Victoria

Do you ever feel like you’re stuck inside all day?

The Builders Arms Hotel is bright and welcoming, with daylight streaming through the windows and bougainvillea cascading across the courtyard. Our locals are a fun-loving and eclectic bunch – one moment you’re pouring a round of icy Carlton Draught, the next you’re talking about dry aged, grass fed beef and opening a bottle of Côte-Rôtie. You’ll look forward to coming to work each day at a place where you’re encouraged to show your passion and personality whilst working within a knowledgeable and professional team.

The Builders Arms Hotel is more than ‘just a pub’.

We want the food, the service and the wine offering to be at the top of what’s on offer in Melbourne – just in a relaxed environment. As Assistant Wine Buyer, you’ll play a key role in achieving this, and we’re well on the way.

This is not a hands-off position - it’s a dynamic and varied one. You’ll assist in sourcing new wine and beer for the list, control the stock, train the team and work daily in the Public Bar and Bistro, sharing your excitement with the locals.

You might be a waiter, bartender or wine leader looking to grow into a wine role, or an experienced sommelier working towards a list of your own.

This is your opportunity – just reach out and take it!

As Assistant Wine Buyer, you will:

  • Be a significant part of our annual lo-fi wine party - HANDMADE 2019 will be our biggest and best yet!
  • Take part in a yearly calendar of events, collaborations and celebrations
  • Enjoy a fair and balanced roster that allows you to have a life outside of work
  • Generate knowledge and excitement in the team about our ever-changing wine list and cellar selection
  • Receive training and hone your skills in the business of beverage - procurement, stock control, sales and financial analysis
  • Have the opportunity to earn WSET Level 2 and Level 3 qualifications
  • Develop into a well-rounded hospitality professional

We’re committed to real career progression. Working day-to-day with Venue Manager Peter Baker and mentored by Beverage Director Leanne Altmann, this role will immerse you in all aspects of shaping a successful wine program.

The Builders Arms Hotel is a landmark public house on Gertrude Street, Fitzroy. A meeting place of significance since 1853, the custodians of the pub today are Andrew McConnell and Anthony Hammond. The Builders Arms Hotel is a member of a family of venues that include Cutler & Co., Marion, Cumulus Inc., Cumulus Up., Supernormal, Supernormal Canteen and Meatsmith Heritage Butcher.

The Builders Arms Hotel is the hottest place to be this summer.
