  Bath, England

The Beckford Bottle Shop Bath is an independent wine shop & bistro with Michelin Bid Gourmand specialising in cheese, charcuterie, British small plates and of course a wonderful range of wine. (

Our shop offers over 300 wines and, even though we are still only a relatively young business, we have started to become established within Bath & surrounding areas for our interesting range and a focus on great service & hospitality. Our selection is broad & encompasses value, classics, fine & natural wine as well as an eclectic mix which we rotate to maintain a fresh and interesting offer.

We are seeking a wine focused manager to join our dynamic team. The role will encompass team management, wine ordering, range selection & promotion linked to a focus on staff development & training. As we are a mixed-use premises, the role also encompasses the day-to-day duties of managing the floor and the broader front of house and retail teams. This is an exciting and challenging role within a growing business with great opportunity for future growth & development.

The ideal candidate will come from a hospitality background with at least WSET Level 2 (preferably Level 3 or above) and a genuine passion for wine as well as a good gasp on financial controls and managing a P&L. Previous team management and an understanding of marketing and promotion would be beneficial.

We are a small team with a strong sense of camaraderie, so a sense of humour and a desire to work with and develop the existing team is important.

In addition we have a growing eCommerce site which we have taken from a fledgling idea during the first lockdown into a viable addition to the business & are currently working on upgrading to a slicker more user-friendly experience, that will be more representative of both the broader business & range we offer.

As part of The Beckford Group ( ) we are very much a hospitality led business. We believe the customer experience comes first and to offer great hospitality you must have great staff. With this at the centre of our approach we invest in our teams. WSET training, our own published Waiter’s Handbook, focused supplier training sessions as well as in house training sessions are all part of our offer.

Benefits – we offer a competitive salary commensurate with the role, city & experience alongside a realistic bonus package (based on Turnover, GP control, Staff Training & Retention). We allow a 25% discount on wine, (how else can you learn..) pension, up to 50% discount on dining & bedrooms within the Beckford Group’s 4 pubs and of course further interesting skills-based training opportunities.
