A rare opportunity to join one of England’s leading sparkling wine producers.

We are looking for a Production & Warehouse Manager to take us to the next level of efficiency, productivity and quality in the storage, riddling, disgorging, labelling and packaging part of the process.

The right candidate will have a proven track record in setting up and running production lines. They should also show a willingness to learn about quality sparkling winemaking. Ensuring quality is maintained whilst meeting health and safety regulation is vital.

This will include maintenance of the machines, organisation of the riddling and disgorging schedules, labelling and packaging of finished goods for Hattingley Valley and our clients.

We feel it is more important to recruit for attitude and aptitude.
