Setting the scene
We are a Sydney based, early stage wine startup with the mission to take the intimidation and confusion out of learning, exploring and most importantly drinking delicious bottles of wine. We are building a wine brand that is simultaneously remarkable yet inclusive, and it’s our mission to provide our customers with access to a world of wine that may just have been a little beyond their comfort zone.
We like to think of ourselves as providing monthly wine adventures, customised to each member's unique tastes, delivered to their door. Where they can learn as much (or as little) about their wines each month as they like. We're about two years old, and we've just started to hit our stride. If this sounds good so far? Great!

Who we're looking for?
Monday to Friday. We need someone who will take a great deal of pride in running a tight ship. And by ship we mean warehouse. Someone that's going to pack a mean box of wine, and do it efficiently because we have lots going out. But also pack with lots of love, because they know that each box is super important to all our customers, and customer experience is the foundation of what our brand is built on.
Specifically, you'll need to be able to learn our back-end order system, create boxes, pack wine, write gift notes, receive stock, do stock takes, keep track of incoming orders and invoices, organise our supplies, manage the warehouse, help with customer service, build relationships with our drivers and suppliers and most importantly work really well with the team.
You need to be organised, detail orientated, or preferably detailed obsessed! For instance, we love it when people address their applications email to: 'Wine Gallery HQ'. Most importantly you'll be someone with grit, who can work hard and fast and handle long hours when needed. Expect to be pushed!
But for the right person who's going to take pride in their efficiency, enjoys hard work and gets a lot out of being super organised, we think it could be a great role.
You'll be the first point of contact with our customers, and we take that very seriously. So you'll be an extremely valuable member of the team. Lastly for the right person there's opportunity to build their own packing team as we grow.
So what's in it for you?
You can expect to work hard, but productively, with a focus on results, not face time. You'll be moving quickly and facing new challenges every day. We're constantly testing and experimenting, so mistakes are going to happen. But we're cool with that because we're constantly learning and improving as we go.
Comp is negotiable for the right people. And of course there's a free wine subscription with your name on it!
