Hawke's Bay

Apply Now

Company: Links Winery Ltd

Type:Fixed Term

Uploaded: 16 September 2022

Closes: 16 October 2022

Links Winery is beginning the first stages of recruitment for Harvest 2023!

We are looking for two lab technicians to join our team for the upcoming harvest season, beginning early February.

Our Lab Technicians work closely with the winemaking team and are responsible for accurate and timely analysis of samples throughout the winemaking process. As a Lab Technician you will be involved with vineyard sampling, juice and wine analysis, fermentation monitoring, quality assurance, trials and more.

We are looking for organised, team players with attention to detail and great communication skills.

Previous Lab experience is desirable; however, we are happy to provide full training for the right person.

About Us

We are a family-owned, medium-sized winery based in Hawke’s Bay. The winery was established in 2008 and is still owned and operated by the founding family. Our friendly, multi-national production team brings winemaking expertise from around the world. We strongly value diversity and inclusion of both, our fellow Kiwis and our overseas friends.

The Region

Often referred to as “Wine Country,” Hawke’s Bay is New Zealand’s oldest wine region. We are lucky to have sunny days, fertile soils, and a warm climate. If wine-tasting is your thing, the region holds 76 wineries and 38 cellar doors, so the toughest decision you will have to make is where to start. On top of boasting a desirable wine culture, Hawke’s Bay also has a growing culinary scene and hosts many food/wine/music events starting in the summer and carrying through until the end of the harvest season.

The Details

The role commences in February with 8-hour shifts, 5 days per week.

The winery operates 24/7 during the peak of harvest season. Over this period, you may be required to work up to 12 hour shifts, 6 days per week, with scheduled days off. We have an energetic and optimistic team, and their goal is to make your experience as fun, educational and enjoyable as possible.

We will kick off Vintage 2023 with a welcome BBQ and end the season with a well-deserved party. Harvest Meals and weekly treats are provided during the longer shifts to keep the team energised. We also like to share beers, wines, and laughs once the shift has finished.

If this sounds like something you’re interested in, please apply now!

Only people eligible to work in this country should apply for this position. Please provide evidence of your work visa or citizenship.
