At Villa Maria, we are extremely proud of our brand - as New Zealand's most awarded wine company we have a reputation for quality.

We are looking for someone to be the "face of Villa Maria" for East Auckland in this part time Wine Ambassador role. Someone well presented, vibrant, outgoing, keen to learn and with fantastic manners. If this is you - keep reading.

You will need your own reliable vehicle as you will be travelling between stores, stocking shelves, building displays, and generally making our product shine in store. There will be plenty of product knowledge to learn, to help you share your passion for our product while conducting tastings in store (it's a great product, and so it's easy to be passionate about it!)

There will be some 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 around 20 per week, depending on the number of tastings and relays. The merchandising aspect of the role will be Monday (starting 6am) and Friday (starting 7am), with potential tastings on Thursday, Friday and Saturday from 3pm to 7pm. 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 (and have access to your own, and an internet connection). There are a lot of records and notes to take and you will be sending these to your manager weekly, using Excel, Word and Outlook.

Full training will be provided, so while previous merchandising or sales/retail experience would be a bonus, we are primarily looking for personality and a great attitude. Punctuality and consistent attendance are also key attributes we are looking for.

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.

Applicants for this position should have NZ residency or a valid NZ work visa.
