Uploaded: 14 September 2022
Closes: 14 October 2022
Sileni Wines is located in the sub-region of the Bridge Pa Triangle in the sunny Hawke’s Bay and produces premium Sauvignon Blanc, Semillon, Chardonnay, Pinot Gris, Albarino, Pinot Noir, Merlot, Cabernet Franc and Syrah from across Hawke’s Bay’s and Marlborough’s diverse sub-regions.
Sileni Wines is part of Booster Wine Group which is a collection of NZ wineries including Waimea Estates, Bannock Brae and Awatere River Wine Company. Booster, through it’s Booster Tahi investment arm, is making significant investments in New Zealand’s agricultural business including avocados, kiwi fruit, and through investments in the wine industry. It is here at Sileni Wines where a dynamic, reliable team player is required to join our Hawke’s Bay team as a Vineyard and Cellar Hand Assistant.
We are looking for a passionate, capable, hardworking, and inquisitive person to join our small team.
Applicants will require sound attention to detail, strong interpersonal and team skills, motivation, initiative, and the stamina required to be effective in a busy environment. With appropriate training, we envisage that you will assist in supervising seasonal staff at vintage.
This is a hands-on role in a busy vineyard and winery environment. An understanding of vineyard operations and vineyard machinery combined with the knowledge of cellar operations, cellar hygiene, Health and Safety requirements, wine quality and food safety considerations are highly sought after but by no means essential. We really want someone with a desire to complete tasks safely, efficiently and to a high standard and with the confidence to ask about the things you are uncertain about. This is a role with scope for growth!
