  Central London, England

An exciting opportunity for a talented individual who is looking to begin or pursue a career in wine and data.

Liv-ex is the global marketplace for the wine trade, with over 600 members worldwide. We offer business services that span trading, data, fulfilment and automation technology to a diverse group of wine businesses – from ambitious start-ups to established merchants.

Our goal is to make fine wine trading more transparent, efficient and safe for the benefit of our members and the market as a whole. We are hard-working, committed yet informal, energetic and action oriented.

Founded in 2000, Liv-ex has grown to serve a growing number of merchant members with a broadening range of services. We help clients and other stakeholders to better understand the fine wine market and identify opportunities to profit.

Summary Purpose

Belonging to the Data Operations team, as Data Administrator you will help support a team of Data Engineers in cleansing and categorising inbound data from a variety of sources to a high standard. This will largely involve mapping this data, which will mostly be wine-related, to Liv-ex’s internal product ID (LWIN). For this reason we are looking for a highly inquisitive and detail-oriented individual who has a working knowledge of wine, its regions and producers.

The Data Operations team has set an ambitious target of massively increasing their data collection reach in the coming years, to include a widening range of wine-related data points. You will play a crucial role in assisting the sourcing, wrangling and matching of this data to Liv-ex’s internal codes. This will largely involve receiving data from various sources, including that which is shared by our clients as well as scraped from the internet, and transforming it into a usable format before using Liv-ex’s proprietary tools to match the data to LWIN. You will be responsible for helping to maintain the health of the LWIN database and to produce excellent record keeping. There will be ample opportunity for the right person to learn new skills related to data engineering, process automation and database management

  • Assist in maintaining the ongoing health of the LWIN database
  • Strive for efficiency and accuracy across all data-related operations

Knowledge, Skills and Experience

  • A working knowledge of wine and the wine industry is essential, with a keen desire to further develop this knowledge
  • Prior experience within the wine industry is desirable but not mandatory, as is experience in data administration
  • Intermediate skills using MS Excel are required, with knowledge of VBA considered a bonus
